Captain Barry reveals frustration

Romford captain Jack Barry is desperately hoping tonight’s Ryman Division One North clash at Cheshunt gets the go-ahead.

Boro have been frustrated by the weather in recent weeks, not playing since their 4-1 win over lowly Ware on January 12.

They have seen trips to Waltham Abbey and Soham Town postponed since, as well as Saturday’s home game against Sudbury.

Tonight’s fixture is rearranged from last week and Barry, on target when Boro did last play, said: “It has been very frustrating with all the games being off.

“But we just all want the game to be on so, we can all get back out there and get playing again and try and climb up the table as quick as possible.

“All the boys are just itching to get going again.”
