Romford ready to meet landlords again

Aveley friendly rearranged for tonight

Romford will complete their pre-season programme with a rearranged friendly against landlords Aveley tonight (7.30pm).

The two sides were due to meet last Tuesday, but problems with the water pipes at Mill Field led to a postponement.

Boro boss Paul Martin will be keen to see his squad get another 90 minutes under their belts before the Ryman One North season gets underway, following their 5-1 defeat at Hythe Town on Saturday.

It was Romford’s first defeat of the summer, while Aveley celebrated a 4-1 win against Premier Division rivals Heybridge Swifts.
