Cheshunt 2 Romford 3

Romford returned to action after a 17-day break to claim the points in Hertfordshire last night.

Boro had not played since their 4-1 win over Ware on January 12, due to a succession of postponements in Ryman Division One North.

But Paul Martin’s men showed little signs of rustiness as they raced into a 2-0 lead.

Lewis Francis opened the scoring from the penalty spot and defender Matt Toms doubled Boro’s advantage by the quarter-hour mark.
