Ryman One North: Romford 4 Dereham Town 2

Romford skipper Jack Barry’s first half double put Boro on course for victory over Dereham Town at Ship Lane last night

Hayes Thomas was handed his first start for the club, but Paul Clayton found himself in the referee’s notebook with just nine minutes on the clock.

However, Barry put Paul Martin’s side in front on 33 minutes, before doubling his lead just three minutes later.

And in the early stages of the second half Boro looked home and hosed when Ryan Imbert scored his fourth goal of the season.

Dereham pulled one back though on 63 minutes through Luke Tuttle, before Thomas was replaced by Tom Richardson in the Romford ranks.

Jamie Dicks came off the bench to make his 100th appearance for the Boro and within a matter of minutes the visitors were reduced to 10 men when Jay Eastoe-Smith saw red.

And Clayton made no mistake from the spot to score his 44th goal for the club to restore their three-goal advantage, though that didn’t last long as Dereham were awarded a spot kick two minutes from time and Tuttle scored his and the visitors’ second of the night to complete the scoring.

The result moved Boro up to 10th spot in the table ahead of Saturday’s trip to Maldon & Tiptree.

Romford: Omand, Ottley, Preston, Truman, Cooper, Clayton, Barry, Seymour, Imbert (Reynolds 85), Cocklin (Dicks 79), Thomas (Richardson 68).

Unused substitutes: Ishmail, Ngoy.

Attendance: 87
