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.
