Club stalwart ready for next test

New assistant coach Paul Clayton was delighted with Romford’s winning start to the new Ryman One North season.

Long-serving Clayton, working alongside Alex Goldstone to help boss Paul Martin this season, was on the mark from the penalty spot himself in a 4-0 victory over Burnham Ramblers at Ship Lane.

Ryan Imbert’s early brace put Boro on top and Abs Seymour also struck in a memorable first half, but Clayton will not be getting carried away just yet.

He said: “It’s a great start. I’ve got to be honest, pre season hasn’t gone as well as we would’ve hoped, but I said to lads it’s all about the games that matter.

“There were some great performances in the first half and we dominated the game.

“It’s always nice to score, but the result and first-half performance were big positives.

“We were a bit disappointed with the second half as we got sloppy, but that shows the mentality we’ve got this season.”

Romford visit Harlow, who won 3-1 at Redbridge in their curtain-raiser, on Tuesday and Clayton added: “We know we can improve still.

“It’s important we stay focused as we’re expecting a very tough away game against Harlow.”
