Romford fell to an eighth consecutive defeat as they were thumped 9-1 by play-off hopefuls Heybridge Swifts.

Braces from Ryan Henshaw, Harrison Chatting and Kreshnic Krasniqi and goals from Luke Callander, Juan Luque and James Baker brushed Boro aside at Scraley Road Stadium.

The defeat has left Paul Martin’s men five points adrift at the bottom of the Bostik North after their relegation rivals Cheshunt picked up another victory.

Callander puts his a side as he slotted home a penalty in the third minute.

Striker Luque then doubled their lead in the 13th minute before Chatting scored from a corner and make it 3-0 six minutes later.

Chatting then delivered a ball into the box for Henshaw who headed home to make it 4-0 in the 32nd minute.

Two minutes later Krasniqi rocketed a shot from 20 yards out right into the top corner to make it five.

Krasniqi then netted his second as he chipped the ball past keeper Rob Budd after Callander picked him out.

In the final minute of the first-half Chatting also bagged his second of the night to make it 7-0 going into the break.

Romford substitute Ben Clarke pulled one back in the 74th minute to reduce the deficit to 7-1 but his goal was soon cancelled out as the Swifts Henshaw found the net once again to make it 8-1 two minutes later.

Substitute Baker then made it 9-1 and sealed his side a comfortable victory.

Heybridge Swifts: Sambridge, Ramon, Cooney, Griffths, Henshaw, Stevenson, Chatting (Ashford 76), Krasniqi, Callander, Gardner (Baker 66), Luque (Clayden 46).

Unused subs: Cawley and Godbold.
