New, comments

With Reading loanee Stuart Moore in goal, Basingstoke recorded another victory with a 1-0 win over Ebbsfleet. Meanwhile, George Legg's Hendon took three points from a possible six with a win over Canvey Island following a defeat to Enfield Town.

Jon Henly - Basingstoke Town (Vanarama Conference South) League Appearances: 3

It has become clear that Henly's one month loan was only ever going to be as cover for Basingstoke's suspended number one, Stuart Moore. Henly's loan expires this weekend and he will almost certainly return to Reading thereafter, hopefully as our new number three following Alex McCarthy's departure to QPR.

Stuart Moore - Basingstoke Town (Vanarama Conference South) League Appearances: 3

Stuart continued in goal for Basingstoke as they recorded a tight 1-0 win over Ebbsfleet Town to climb to third in the Conference South. The match-winning goal came in the 23rd minute - a free kick was audaciously lobbed directly in from all of 35 yards by McAuley to give them a crucial victory. Stuart added another clean sheet as he continued his own personal great start to the season and later tweeted that

@StuMooreIOW: 1-0 win against Ebbsfleet! Great team performance and another clean sheet

George Legg - Hendon FC (Isthmian League) Appearances: 8

Two appearances again this week for Legg's Hendon as they climbed to 5th in the Ryman Isthmian League. However, the week started terribly for them as they crashed to a 3-0 home defeat to 15th placed Enfield Town. Three second half goals in the 52nd, 71st and 77th minutes rounded off a second half capitulation from Gary McCann's side, who later said that

When you least expect something (the second half capitulation) It makes it so much harder to understand and accept. We were nowhere near it today. Credit to Enfield.

A clearly distraught McCann took his side to Canvey Island on Tuesday, looking to bounce back from the shock defeat the previous weekend. A solitary goal from the experienced Kezie Ibe in the first half was eventually enough to see off their Isthmian League opposition - who also had a man sent off shortly after half time. Another clean sheet for our young loanee, who made one excellent save in the second half which was complimented by Hendon's official Twitter account:

Fantastic save from the header in the first half, George, we were convinced it was in. Well played. Well deserved clean sheet.

~~~~~~~~

So, clean sheets for both Moore and Legg AGAIN this week helps to continue their great starts to the season. Although Legg's initial loan to Hendon from Reading FC expires this week, (the 7th as far as I'm aware) I'm certain Hendon and Reading will want to extend that until at least January.
