PUBLISHED: 16:40 28 October 2013 | UPDATED: 16:40 28 October 2013

Thamesmead Town’s difficult start to the season continued with a crushing 5-2 defeat at Hendon on Saturday.

Mid-table Hendon, who are 13th in the Ryman Premier, took the lead after four minutes through Anthony Taggert.

Former Oxford United and Bristol Rovers striker Jefferson Louis doubled the lead two minutes before the interval and he repeated the trick three minutes into the second-half to put the game to bed.

Dave Diedhiou scored the fourth goal before Lewis Tozer responded with a consolation with nine minutes remaining.

There was still time for Anthony Thomas to make it 5-1 before Javlon Campbell struck in stoppage time to lend some respectability to the scoreline.

Mead are second bottom with seven points from their 14 games, and are without a game until the visit of Bognor Regis on Tuesday, November 5.
