Romford’s women saw their winning streak come to an end in Essex League Division Two following a 1-0 home defeat against Redbridge seconds.

Five successive victories either side of Christmas had lifted Romford up the table and they created good chances at Robert Clack.

But the Redbridge goalie was in outstanding form, making several impressive saves to keep the scoreline blank.

Romford hit the outside of a post as well and conceded the only goal of the game with just seven minutes remaining.

They will hope to bounce back when they host Old Loughts fourths this Saturday (11.30am).

The men lost 5-0 to East Five South East leaders Plashet, but remain second – 10 points behind their rivals – and visit Wapping eighths this weekend.

The seconds slipped to a 2-1 defeat at Old Southendian fifths in Division Eight and host Wapping tenths next.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
