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.
