R1N: Heybridge 2 Romford 3 ESC: Concord 2 Hornchurch 3
Two-goal Jack Barry led Romford to the Ryman One North points at Heybridge tonight, while Hornchurch hit back from two goals down at Concord in the Essex Senior Cup to clinch a quarter-final spot.
Delayed en route to Scraley Road due to an accident on the A12, Boro fell behind in the opening minutes as Tom English struck from the penalty spot.
Alex Read levelled in the seventh minute, but a second spot-kick from English put Swifts, who had relieved manager Wayne Bond of his duties earlier in the day, ahead for a second time.
Barry got Boro back on level terms soon after and his header, seven minutes after the restart sealed victory for Paul Martin’s men.
