Essex Senior Cup third round: Maldon & Tiptree 1 (Clampin 18p) Romford 3 (Kelly 42, Ishmail 57, Nzengo 68)
Romford battled back from a goal down to win 3-1 at Maldon & Tiptree and advance to the fourth round of the Essex Senior Cup.
Boro trailed to an 18th-minute penalty from Ryan Clampin after Ryan Gondoh was fouled in the box for the Jammers.
However, with three minutes left in the half, Paul Martin’s men drew level when Garrett Kelly scored after being played through on goal.
Romford then took the lead 12 minutes into the second half when James Ishmail fired home from the edge of the area.
With 22 minutes remaining in the match, Johnathon Nzengo rounded out the scoring for Boro by rifling into the net with an angled drive.
It was a second cup success of the week for the Ship Lane club, having beaten Bostik North rivals Hornchurch in the Velocity Trophy on Saturday.
Romford will now hope to carry that form into the league when they visit Potters Bar Town on Saturday.
