Boro given another home tie against Kingstonian

Romford captain Jack Barry is undaunted by his side’s next test in the FA Cup – a home tie against Kingstonian.

Boro booked their place in the second qualifying round with a 1-0 win over Ryman Premier Division side Bury yesterday, thanks to a goal from Jamie Dicks.

And Paul Martin’s men were then handed the chance to claim another Ryman Premier scalp when paired with K’s this morning.

Barry said: “That’s another tough game and another team from a league above, but that’s good, we like these games.

“It’s less pressure on us and again we will be underdogs. We are at home and so far this season we have a good home record and will look to keep that up when they come down to our place.”

Boro banked £3,000 in prize money for their win over Bury, who have been struggling for league form so far this season.

That came after a cheque for £1,950 for their preliminary round win at St Margaretsbury and Romford have the chance to add another £4,500 to club coffers on the weekend of September 27-28.

But Barry is taking nothing for granted, adding: “No disrespect to Bury, Kingstonian will probably be a harder test for us and will be a totally different game.

“I know they were strong last year and they will just be as strong this year, but it’s the FA Cup and anything can happen on the day. All the boys will be looking forward to it.”
