Romford & Gidea Park were beaten heavily by Eton Manor in the London One North last weekend, their eighth consecutive defeat.

Second-placed Manor ran in eight unanswered tries at the New Wilderness to consign Grant Henwood’s team to 15th league loss of the campaign.

Park were without captain Steve Barfoot and veteran Jeff Woods and therefore fielded a younger and more inexperienced squad than usual.

And it didn’t take Jamie Connors team long to open the scoring and to add insult to injury winger George Robertson had suffered an injury before the opening score.

Manor went on to add five more tries in the opening half as they ran riot against a weak Park outfit.

Henwood’s side rarely threatened during the opening 40 however Bamilele Coker did produce a great run from defence, but was unfortunately halted within touching distance of the opposition try line.

It meant Park came in at the break trailing by 34 points and facing a crushing defeat and a tough second half.

But they defended with great determination after the interval and withheld various Manor attacks.

The hosts didn’t break through until 31 minutes of the second period had been played and yellow cards to Tom Cameron and Glen Kennedy didn’t help the away sides cause.

Manor added one more try before full time to earn a 46-0 victory, but Henwood’s team could take solace from their second half display.

The defeat keeps them 12th in the table and the gap between themselves and 11th place Thurrock is 20 points now.

Romford & Gidea Park: Irwin, Kennedy, T Lawrence ©, M Catchpole, A Catchpole, Noyce, Lynn, O’Brien, Cameron, Duke, Robertson, Webb, Savill, Coker, Reid.

Replacements: B Lawrence, Inwood, Dearman.

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.
