Highgate Albion Reserves sealed a 4-0 victory over Hendonians to bounce back to winning ways in the Barnet Sunday Football League Division Two encounter.

A frustrating first half followed with few chances and heavy winds making it an unpredictable affair for both clubs.

The second half started the same as the first but the introduction of substitutes Anthoney Dalton and John McNamara turned the game on its head.

Albion captain Daniel Glaude took a long range free kick and smashed it into the top right hand corner.
