Ryman Div 1N: Chatham 0 Romford 2

Romford ensured a happy return for boss Paul Martin in Kent.

Martin was back in the dug out after finally completing his five-match ban during their 1-0 loss to Harlow in midweek.

And goals either side of the break helped clinch three welcome points in their bid to pull away from the bottom four.

Tom Richardson netted his 10th goal of the season on the stroke of half time, ending a 10-game wait since mid-October when he struck in the 2-2 home draw with Chatham.

And Ryan Imbert doubled Romford’s lead just past the hour mark with his fifth of the campaign.

Boro had few problems holding onto their lead in the time remaining, but they finished with five yellow cards to their name after Jamie Dicks, James Ishmail, Jack Barry, Robbie Norris and Paul Clayton all made it into the referee’s black book.

They have plenty of games in hand on their rivals towards the bottom of the table and are due to take on landlords Thurrock at Ship Lane on Tuesday.

Romford: Ngoy, Barry, Woodward, Truman (Ottley 71), Ishmail, Clayton, Norris, Dicks (Seymour 49), Reynolds (Hart 80), Imbert, Richardson.

Unused subs: Toms, Omand.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
