Romford face tough Trophy test

Martin warns of ‘pacy’ Dulwich

Romford boss Paul Martin remains on his guard ahead of his side’s FA Trophy clash with Dulwich Hamlet at Ship Lane tomorrow (Saturday).

Boro suffered a last-minute defeat when the sides last met in a Ryman League Cup tie in January 2011 but will face landlords Thurrock if they make it through.

Martin said: “Dulwich are a very pacy side and are third in their league.

“Some people say that Ryman One South is stronger than the North and that their clubs have more money, but you never really know.”

Boro edged to a 1-0 win over Ilford last weekend, thanks to a Nick Reynolds header.

Martin added: “I was very pleased with Nick Reynolds and I think he had one of his best games in a Romford shirt.
