Romford boss Paul Martin is hoping to have last season’s top goalscorer Nick Reynolds back at the club after putting in a seven-day approach for the striker.
Reynolds left in the summer to join Maldon & Tiptree, who Boro travel to tomorrow (Saturday) in Ryman One North action.
But a lack of game time has seen him shipped out on loan to Essex Senior League side Eton Manor, and Martin is keen to bring him back.
“We are going to try and get him back,” said Martin. “He was last season’s top goalscorer for us so you can see how much of an impact he had.
“It’s not worked out for him at Maldon, but I’ll have a word with him and hopefully we can sort something out.”
Boro had no first-team fixture last weekend, but Martin hosted a trialist event.
And although one or two impressed, the Romford boss was disappointed. “Finding players that will add quality is difficult,” he added.
“There were one or two that did okay, but there was nothing spectacular.”
But with the 10-day break since their last match, Martin admits he doesn’t know what he’ll get from his side at Maldon.
“You never know with these breaks, it can work for you, but it can equally go against you,” he said.
“With the budget Maldon have they should be there or thereabouts so we know how tough it’ll be.”
Martin will then prepare his side for a trip to League Two side Dagenham & Redbridge in the Essex Senior Cup third round on Tuesday.
“It’s a great game for the players, and I’ll have a few people disappointed with the team I’ll go with,” he added.
“But the players should be disappointed if they miss out whoever we are playing.”
Hull City manager Steve Bruce believes that Arsenal have the ability to win the league this season.
