Romford seeking new manager
Online auction to be Boro boss for Boxing Day
Romford Football Club have launched an online auction to give fans the chance to be joint first-team manager for a day.
Supporters can bid to be the stand-in Boro boss for their Ryman One North clash against Grays at East Thurrock on Boxing Day, with real boss Paul Martin serving a two-match touchline ban.
The successful bidder will shadow Martin in the away changing room, during all pre-match preparations and have an exclusive place in the team dug-out throughout the game against high-flying Grays.
Martin will be on hand with advice to be passed on to the players and supporters who would like to participate in the auction can bid via the appropriate thread in our website forum at www.romfordfc.com.
