Loan Report: August 28th

A return in goal for Stuart Moore saw Jon Henly drop to the Basingstoke bench while Hendon continue their solid start to the season with 4 more valuable points.

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

Despite keeping a clean sheet and saving a penalty last week, Basingstoke opted to stick by their regular number one goalkeeper who returned from suspension this week, so Henly - as expected - drops back to the bench. With his loan expiring at the end of the month, it's very likely that that may be the last we see of Henly in a Basinstoke shirt this season.

Stuart Moore - Basingstoke Town (Vanarama Conference South) Appearances: 2

Returning from suspension, Moore made his first league start for Basingstoke between the sticks in their 2-0 victory over Hayes and Yeading. He then made his second league start of the season the following Monday against Farnborough, looking to make it four wins in a row for Basingstoke. Unfortunately, they cruelly came away with nothing as, having lead through a first half Williams penalty, they conceded late goals in the 88th and 90th minutes to condemn them to a harsh defeat. Moore was pinpointed as having made a great save during the match as a..

"great chance for Boro' fell to Ball, whose placed effort produced a fantastic diving save from Stuart Moore."

George Legg - Hendon FC (Ryman Isthmian League) Appeaeances: 6

A gutsy and dominant performance from Hendon could only result in a 1-1 draw with East Thurrock on a frustrating Saturday afternoon for Gary McCann's men. After, the manager could only reflect on....

"two points dropped" and said that "misfortune could be a word that describes today".

An understatement to say the least. If your side created a host of chances, hit the woodwork three times and had two chances cleared off the line, you'd be right in feeling slightly disappointed in coming away with a point. Leggy and Hendon then moved onto Harrow Borough on Monday night, looking to put Saturday's finishing nightmare behind them. They did just that by producing another thoroughly dominant display and scoring twice to produce a 2-0 victory. Boro' were said to have created very little but Hendon's back five were singled out for extra praise from the press, pointing out that they were....

"solid as a rock" and that they had the "joint best defensive record in the league."

One journalist also also described them as real...

"promotion contenders".

Here's to hoping Legg and his team mates can continue their excellent start to he season.
