A 51st minute header from defender Wes Parker was the enough to settle an evenly contested local derby between Wealdstone and Hendon at a warm and sunny Vale Farm this afternoon. Rakki Hudson came closest to given the Greens the lead in the first half when he just failed to connect with a Scott Cousins free kick, whilst Jamie Busby forced a good save from Jonathan North late in the half with a quickly taken free kick.
Wealdstone began the 2nd half much brighter and took the lead when Parker was left unchallenged from a corner to head powerfully inside James Reading's far post. Reading then made a good save from Callum Martin whilst Hendon's best effort of the 2nd half came courtesy of a deflected Belal Aite-ouakrim shot that North did extremely well to get down low to. Despite late pressure from the Greens, Wealdstone were able to hold out for a win to give them the local bragging rights for another season.
