Romford youngsters progress

Youth Cup win for Boro boys

Romford’s under-18s booked their place in the next round of the FA Youth Cup with a goal in each half last night.

The visitors were reduced to ten men midway through the first half when one of their players was shown a straight red card.

Alex Coney gave Boro the lead when he followed up to head home after an earlier effort had come back off a post.

And the home side doubled their lead with 17 minutes remaining when Bill Rungay collected a cross from the right and composed himself before firing a low shot across the Cheshunt keeper.

Boro visit Oxhey Jets or Hemel Hempstead later this month and entertain Thurrock in the league on Sunday (2pm).
