Romford crash after Joe sees red
Pearman sent off as Boro bow out
TEN-MEN Boro bowed out of the Essex Senior Cup in controversial fashion after a 4-2 defeat against Stansted at Mill Field last night.
Manager Paul Martin had said the competition was not among his priorities this season and saw Joe Pearman receive his marching orders for a professional foul after only 10 minutes – with Boro already ahead thanks to Richard Oxby’s fourth-minute goal.
Dwight Gayle, who netted a hat-trick in a 7-2 win at Bowers on Saturday as Stansted made it a club record 10-game unbeaten start to the season, equalised from the spot.
And Vinnie Durrant gave the Airportmen a 2-1 lead five minutes before the interval.

Oxby’s second goal got Boro back on terms and gave the ten-men hope, but Gayle struck again on the hour with a swerving effort to restore the visitors lead.
And Andy Oxby claimed the bragging rights over his brother with a late fourth for Stansted to send them into the last 16.
