HENDON were outclassed in Saturday's FA Cup clash against AFC Telford at Vale Farm.
"It's not often I've felt we were second best but I thought Telford were faster in deed and thought and more committed than us," said Hendon boss Gary McCann. "By that I mean committed to tackles and I can't criticise my players' commitment and effort."
Telford went ahead in the 12th minute when Terry Ferns opened the scoring with a header just inside the in the upright.
Yet Hendon raised their game and five minutes later could have scored when a corner from Charlie Mapes was headed over the bar by Rakathar Hudson. Minutes later Mapes well-struck free kick was saved by the keeper.
But Telford rallied and doubled their lead when Lee Moore scored just before the break for a 2-0 half-time lead. Telford controlled the match in the second half but Hendon gained some consolation when Brian Haule netted in the third minute of injury time.
