Martin: Harlow were a class above
Romford boss admits defeat
Romford manager Paul Martin had no complaints after his side’s 4-1 defeat at Ryman Division One North rivals Harlow.
Lee Roache and Bertie Brayley netted twice each for the hosts, before Petrit Elbi’s consolation.
Alex Read (concussion) and Andy Edmunds (back) were forced off with early injuries for Boro, who lie four points off a play-off place with two games in hand.
And Martin said: “I said to the boys we would have to be at our best to get a result at Harlow and we had to make two substitutions in the first 15 minutes.

“Harlow were a lot more organised, stronger and more experienced than us and I can’t take anything away from them. They were a class above us.
“They’ve sorted themselves out and the set-up and support there is unbelievable. They’ve got four or five ex-pros in their squad and I’ve got 18 and 19-year-olds, so it’s going to show.
