Romford boss happy with his lot

Draw with Dockers is ‘just deserved’

Paul Martin declared himself happy with a point after Romford’s 1-1 draw with Ryman One North rivals Tilbury.

Boro extended their unbeaten run to six games after the Mill Field stalemate and reached Christmas with 29 points under their belts.

Martin said: “Both teams were happy at the end,” he added.

“The first half was very dull, both teams cancelled each other out. But the second half it came alive and was end-to-end.

“We’ve not got any complaints. It’s another point and the boys are defending well.
