Long-serving Romford striker Nick Reynolds is pleased they put in a shift to mark manager Paul Martin’s 500th game in charge.

Boro drew 1-1 with undefeated Bostik North outfit Haringey Borough after conceding a late 83rd minute equaliser from Anthony McDonald to cancel out Connor Hammond’s early goal.

“It was nice that we have gone out their and put in a bit of performance as we’ve not been playing that well lately, we’ve got to a turn a corner at some point, but it was all for the gaffer at the end of the day,” Reynolds said.

“You’re not going to see commitment like that at any club or any level these days, so we tried to put in a performance and I think we was unlucky to not get the win as well.”

The attacker also revealed how special it is to the manager and the players to be wearing black armbands with former players names on them who fought in the war.

“I think we were up at Dereham a few years ago when it was something along them lines.

“I can’t remember, but I think we had the photo together at half-time, so it seems to always fall against Dereham.

“Mag is big on the Remembrance stuff so it will be good to go up there and put it in for the people who fought in the war for us.

“As Mag always says if it wasn’t for them we wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for them.”

Reynolds also believes drawing Canvey Island away in the BBC Essex Senior Cup fourth round is great for them.

“I think it’s kind of in our favour a little bit, as what we’ve gone and got is a bigger team in the league and in history, we sort of go to them teams and do a job against them,” he said.

“It’s not something we’re going to fear, as I think the way we’re playing now over the last few weeks is a lot better.

“We’ve got our systems sorted, training is going well, and we’ve just got to start converting a little more on the pitch.”
