Striker set to return to regular role

Nick Reynolds may well top the Romford goalscoring charts so far this season with 10.

But the Emerson Park PE teacher found himself in the firing line at Wroxham this week.

Reynolds took over between the posts on a cold night in Norfolk, when Atu Ngoy was forced off six minutes from time.

And he managed to remain unbeaten during his goalkeeping cameo, although that was little consolation with Romford already 5-0 down to their Ryman One North rivals.

Reynolds said: “To be honest, I loved it!

“I had played in goal a bit when I was younger, so when Magic asked me to go in goal I was quite excited.

“But I was grateful to the defence that I only had to make one save while I was in goal!”

Reynolds should return to his regular striking role as Boro welcome Witham to Ship Lane this weekend.

Paul Martin’s men will be looking for revenge after their 1-0 defeat at Spa Road just before Christmas.

Captain Jack Barry hit the crossbar, while Barry, Reynolds and Billy Hunt were all denied by fine saves from Jason Baker.

Emeke Onwubiko’s goal proved enough to seal the points for Witham, while Boro had Barry sent off for two bookable offences and also saw James Ishmail red-carded for dissent at the final whistle.
