PUBLISHED: 14:00 19 June 2018
Romford manager Paul Martin has already made several changes to his team ahead of the 2018/19 Bostik North season.
First-team coach Alex Goldstone will now take up the role of Director of Football.
He will now be responsible for analysis of opponents, providing scouting reports on players, and identifying players we wish to recruit, alongside match day duties.
Boss Martin has also moved to bring in three new young backroom staff in to help the club and progress them in non league football as coaches.
Joe Cook will be the goalkeeping coach and joins after spending three and a half years at Chelsea Foundation.
Jack Chandler is the new sports therapist and will bring his experience from working at Millwall Academy.
Boro have also moved to appoint Jack Hayes as first-team coach and he will help Martin and assistant manager Mark Lord in the dug-out.
Martin has also announced the return of three players to his squad with defender Dan Cossington being named captain.
Cossington was an instrumental part of the side’s great escape last season and Martin will want him to lead the side away from the drop zone again this term.
Romford have also named Chris Taylor as vice-captain for the upcoming season with the pair both helping out with coaching.
The club also revealed versatile Jonathan Nzengo is returning after impressing last season with eight goals in 49 appearances.
Nzengo split the season between playing at right-back and right-wing predominantly and finished as the club’s second top goal scorer.
