Hendon United A manager David Garbacz saw his side go three points clear at the top of the Premier Division table as they maintained their 100 percent winning start to the season and says not only can they win the title – but they could also do it by going through the season unbeaten.

Their latest win on Sunday morning was a 3-1 win against Camden Park, and while Garbacz concedes there’s still a long way to go in the season, he says it has already been in his thoughts.

He said: “We will definitely be challenging for the title this season – nothing less than winning the league will suffice and we have full belief that we can wrest the trophy back this year. It is far too early to talk about Invincibles, but I wouldn’t say it hasn’t crossed my mind!”

Sunday’s win was a hard-fought affair, and while they took the lead through Zac Lewis’ tap-in, a stunning strike from Jake Saunders saw Camden deservedly go into the break level.

However, second half strikes from Ari Last and Dovi Fehler, the latter of which came when Camden were reduced to ten men, saw Hendon make it four wins from four, during which time they’ve already scored 17 goals.

Reflecting back on the win, he said: “I was happy with the way we grinded out the win on a day when we were nowhere near our best. No team can turn it on week in week out, but the important thing is to get the points when not at your best which is what we did today.

“I thought they definitely deserved to be level at half-time, if for no other reason than an absolute worldly of a goal , but in the second half we tweaked a few things around and it did the trick as we looked far more dangerous, and overall just about deserved the win.”

And insisting there’s a lot more to come from his side, which could propel them to another title, and even potentially, accomplish it unbeaten, he said: “We’ve had a great start – the squad is in excellent shape and we have played some scintillating football at times this year.

“We’re yet to get everyone available for a match and there is a lot more to come, but so far we’re delighted with how the season has gone.”
