Romford slumped to their fifth successive defeat as Bowers ran riot at Ship Lane.

Barely three minutes had been played when the visitors opened the scoring as Lewis Clark tapped home from close range when Michael Gooch saved Callum Leahy’s effort from a Ben Sartrain free-kick.

It was 2-0 when Martyn Stokes met a David Knight corner with a thumping header but Boro had a let-off when Tony Stokes hit the crossbar from a Knight cross.

The hosts conceded a third before the break, though, as Gavin Cockman flicked on a long ball from Martyn Stokes, before Tony Stokes slid the ball across goal for Sartain to score.

And the second half was barely three minutes old when Bowers went 4-0 up as Martyn Stokes converted a James Thomas cross.

And ex-Boro keeper Callum Chafer denied Sam Mvemba a reply, before also making an outstanding save to thwart the returning Greg Akpele, who was back in a blue shirt after a spell with Essex Senipoopr League side Clapton.

Substitute Nick Reynolds had an effort ruled out for offside and Akpele fired another chance wide, before Bowers completed their nap hand late on as Clark headed home his second goal of the afternoon.

Romford will now turn their attentions to the Velocity Trophy and a home tie against Tilbury on Wednesday.

Romford: Gooch, Burtt Allen, Dicks, Mvemba, Atkinson, Adebayo, Olukoga, Tombides (Clarke 83), Ayoola (Jeakins 65), Akpele, Nzengo (Reynolds 57).
