Greens have been drawn at home to local rivals Wingate & Finchley in both the FA Cup and London Senior Cup

Hendon go in search of a third straight win in the Bostik Premier on Saturday when they make the trip to divisional newcomers Brightlingsea Regent.

Last weekend, the Greens moved up to fifth in the table with a 1-0 triumph at home to Harlow Town.

After a goalless first half at Silver Jubilee Park, Keagan Cole scored what proved to be the winner for the hosts in the 64th minute.

Gary McCann’s men will hope to capitalise on a slow start to the season for Regent, who have taken just one point from three games so far.

On Monday, Hendon are back at home as they host local rivals Harrow Borough.

The Greens also discovered their opponents in both the FA Cup first qualifying round and the London Senior Cup first round this week.

By quirk of fate, Hendon will host divisional rivals Wingate & Finchley in both competitions, with the FA Cup tie kicking off at 3pm on September 2, while the London Cup date is TBC.
