HENDON's miserable season continued when they lost their Ryman League premier division clash with 10-man Dartford at Princes Park on Saturday.
Four days earlier the Dons crashed out of the Isthmian Cup, losing 2-0 to Harrow Borough at Vale Farm.
On Saturday, Hendon struggled from the outset, continually failing to break through Dartford's defence. The home side were reduced to 10 men when James White was red-carded for raising an elbow when tackling Lee O'Leary in the 30th minute.

Skipper Tommy Osborne made no mistake with the resulting spot-kick for the game's only goal.
Four days earlier, Hendon produced a lacklustre first half against Harrow and the scoreline remained 0-0 at half-time.
But Harrow substitute Gary Noel set the game alight when he netted a second half brace, the first in the 50th minute and another in the closing minute.
Hendon are away to Harlow Town in the league on Tuesday.
