Spot-on Tommy

Black blow for Blues

Tommy Black’s penalty double saw Hornchurch edge past Brentwood in their FA Trophy clash at Bridge Avenue.

Former Urchin Dean Green gave the Blues - who had won an FA Cup tie between the two clubs last month - in front, but their lead did not last long.

In-form Black levelled from the spot before the break and struck again - after missing another penalty - to send Jimmy McFarlane’s men through to the second qualifying round.

Romford will join them, following a 2-0 win at Waltham Forest.

Toran Senghore put Boro ahead against their Ryman One North rivals and Danny Rafis made sure six minutes from time.

The draw for the next round is coming up later today.
