Hendon banished the memory of the weekend’s defeat at Dulwich Hamlet with a dominant 6-0 victory at bottom club Cray Wanderers last night.

The result elevates Gary McCann’s side to 11th in the table after Hendon took the advantage over their hosts as early as the third minute.

Chris Seeby opened his account for the club after meeting a free-kick unmarked to turn the ball in and within 20 minutes Hendon were three up.

James Fisher headed home his first for the club from a corner and three minutes later Jefferson Louis bundled home Michael Bryan’s inviting cross from close range.

And the result was put beyond doubt before the break when Louis supplied a tantalising cross to find the unmarked Anthony Thomas, who slammed home.

Cray enjoyed greater possession in the second half, but Hendon extended their lead when Louis nodded in Thomas’ cross for his 20th of the season and substitute Sam Flegg headed the sixth.

The result follows a disappointing 2-0 defeat littered with calamitous defensive errors at promotion chasing Dulwich Hamlet.

Flegg and goalkeeper Tomer Sherman collided to allow Ian Daly a simple tap-in for the opener, before Tony Taggart was denied an equaliser by the offside flag.

The afternoon then got worse for Flegg, who deflected a second past the helpless Sherman.
