Ryman League Round Up: Urchins go top of Premier while Romford pick up win
Three late goals for McFarlane’s men and Reynolds nets brace for Boro
AFC Hornchurch moved to the top of the Ryman Premier with a 3-0 win over 10-men Kingstonian.
The Urchins were met with a fine display from K’s keeper Rob Tolfrey to keep it goalless for so long as he denied Martin Tuohy, Lewis Smith, Michael Spencer and Tommy Black.
But Kingstonian’s Bash Alimi had received his marching orders just short of the hour mark after his second booking of the match.
And after that the Bridge Avenue hosts ran riot, with Tuohy breaking the deadlock, before Smith netted the second after a fine run from Spencer.

It was a game Boro should have won comfortably but had a Nick Reynolds brace to thank for the three points in the end.
Matt Toms fired the hosts in front after a sixth minute header from Paul Kavanagh;s free kick.
They increased their lead when another Kavanagh free kick was headed home by Reynolds after 25 minutes.
Ricci Crace capitalised on a defensive error to give Ware a lifeline but Reynolds was on hand to restore the two-goal lead when he got on the end of another Kavanagh ball in.
The visitors reduced the deficit once again when Anthony Lane’s free kick found its way past Elliott Anderson three minutes into the second half, but Boro held on for the win, just the response boss Paul Martin wanted after back-to-back 4-1 defeats.
