Romford’s men made it four games unbeaten in East Five South East with victory on the Essex coast at Clacton.

Buoyed by their 4-1 derby triumph over Upminster a week earlier, they ran out winners by the same margin thanks to four goals from Ashley Meyer for a seventh success in 10 outings.

But they now face a blank weekend as scheduled opponents Harlow have pulled out of the league.

Romford still trail leaders Plashet by four points and are set to host Waltham Forest thirds in their last match of 2017 tomorrow week (December 9).

The seconds lost 6-0 at home to high-flying Braintree thirds in Division Eight and are due to travel to Southend thirds this weekend.

Romford’s women lost 4-1 at mid-table rivals Chelmsford fourths in Essex League Division Two, as Lorraine Farnham netted, and host leaders East London fifths at Robert Clack on Saturday.

The seconds lost 6-0 at home to East London eighths, their eighth defeat in a row.
