Reynolds: We’ve had a great finish

Romford striker Nick Reynolds admits he is ‘gutted’ the season is finished, especially after scoring in three consecutive matches.

Reynolds netted in Boro’s 2-2 draw with Waltham Forest and was on target again as they finished the Ryman Division One North campaign with 3-1 victories against Waltham Abbey and Brentwood.

Paul Martin’s men ended the season on an eight-game unbeaten run and Reynolds was pleased they were able to finish in eighth place.

Reynolds said: “It was good to get another goal, I’m a bit gutted the season is ending as I started to find my scoring touch again!

Romford secured their highest-ever finish since promotion from the Essex Senior League thanks largely to a superb run in April, staying undefeated and picking up 20 points out of a possible 24.

Reynolds praised manager Paul Martin and assistant Mark Lord for their efforts during the season, citing them as the reason behind the squad’s strong finish.

He added: “I have to say without Magic (Paul Martin) and Lordy (Mark Lord) none of this would have been possible.

“They have worked us hard, brought the squad together and picked us up when we were down.”

Reynolds’ goal against rivals Brentwood ensured he finished as Romford’s top goalscorer this campaign, with 16 goals overall.

And he expressed his delight at being able to reward the Boro fans with a good league position adding: “The fans have been great as always following us everywhere. It’s nice to give something back to them.”
