Romford boss hopes for help

Martin looks ahead to Braintree visit

Romford boss Paul Martin is hoping for a bit of help when Conference side Braintree visit for an Essex Senior Cup tie on Tuesday.

Boro visit Potters Bar in Ryman One North tomorrow (Saturday), after suffering a disappointing 2-1 home defeat against Leiston on Sunday.

Martin said: “Braintree came and watched us on Sunday and might stick their under-10s out against us!

“You want the big teams in the Essex Senior Cup, it’s something for the fans.”

Martin also had a good luck message for FA Cup conquerors Southend Manor and local rivals Redbridge, who are bidding for a place in the first roud proper tomorrow.

He added: “All the best of luck to Terry Spillane and Redbridge and Southend Manor. I hope we get one of them through to the first round.”
