2009-2010 Season Report

1st Team: Herts/Middlesex League 1

The First XV finished fourth in Herts Middlesex League 1 having been promoted last season. This was a reasonable result but early losses by small margins meant that they could have finished higher. They did achieve success, however in the Middlesex Senior League Cup beating Wasps FC in the final.

Middlesex Senior League Cup

Hendon qualified for their 5th final of a Middlesex competition since 2004/05 having only missed out in 06/07. They were winners of the Vase Competition in 07/08 and have been runners up three times in that competition.

2nd Team: Herts/Middlesex Merit Table 3

Fifth place in the Merit Table after two successive promotions was the outcome of a successful season for the seconds. Captain Paddy Short said “We introduced a lot of new players both to the game and the club and we provided half a dozen of last year’s squad into the First XV. We enjoyed most of our rugby and the social side of the game but next season hopefully we will have a more experienced squad for the new captain Brian Gilbride to lead.”

Presentation Night

The Annual Presentation Evening was held in our sponsor’s pub The Bodhran on 8th May and a large turn out of players enjoyed a noisy evening of celebration of their team mates’ achievements during the season.
