I will make changes says Martin
Romford return to league action
Romford boss Paul Martin has promised to make changes after seeing his side crash out of the FA Cup.
Boro went down 4-2 at Essex Senior League leaders Southend Manor last weekend and return to Ryman Division One North action with games against Needham Market at Mill Field tomorrow (Saturday) and Ilford on Tuesday.
Martin said: “I was bitterly disappointed and it’s the first time I’ve been knocked out by a lower league club.
“There were some bigger upsets than ours, but we’ve got to take it on the chin and try to respond.

“There are going to be changes and if the players don’t like it, I’m sorry but I’m there to win games and get results.”
Matt Toms has returned to the club and Paul White is also set to be included in the squad this weekend.

Martin added: “We look shaky at the back.
“We’re not playing really bad, but a bit of a lack of concentration and mistakes are costing us games.
“We’ve had some sad news this week as well with Sam Adams passing away and our deepest sympathies go out to Paul and the family.
“Hopefully we can turn a corner and pay our respects to her this weekend.”
Hornchurch were also left to lick their wounds after slipping to a 3-1 defeat against Concord Rangers.
They welcome Ryman Premier Division rivals Wealdstone to Bridge Avenue tomorrow and visit Margate on Tuesday.
Manager Jimmy McFarlane said: “Wealdstone are one of those sides whose school report would be ‘should do better’. I just hope it starts on Monday.
“We’ve got a tough few games coming up and we’ve got to get back to how we were prior to last Saturday.”
