Romford ended up well beaten by an impressive Maldon side in their Bostik North meeting at the Wallace Binder ground.

Having snapped a five-game losing run with a goalless draw against Basildon United, Boro found themselves behind after just 12 minutes as Eddie-Louis Dsane put the hosts shead.

It was 2-0 before the half-hour mark as Dsane doubled Maldon’s lead, with Matthew Brigggs making it 3-0 before the hour mark.

George Forrest hit back for the visitors midway through the second half, but it was little consolation for Paul Martin’s men as Dsane completed his hat-trick in the last minute.

Defeat left Romford in 16th place, with a home game against local rivals Brentwood up next at Rookery Hill on Wednesday.

*Romford have been removed from the Essex Senior Cup having played an ineligible player in their win at Bowers.

A statement said: “When the player registered with Romford we checked what games he had played for his previous clubs. The player had played in the first round of this competition, but no Essex Senior Cup fixture shows on the club fixture list, so we were not even aware they had been in the competition.

“As we do not deny the player was on the teamsheet for the Bowers match, the club has accepted the punishment of being removed from the Essex Senior Cup.

“We are disappointed for the supporters, players and management team, that we are not in a position to repear last year’s semi-final appearance.”

Romford: Hughes, Forrest, Joseph, Nesbitt, Olukoga, Jones (Akpele 47), Toussaint, Bradford (Potter 47), Bolton, Daly (Reynolds 48), Hammond. Unused subs: Taylor, Cossington.

Attendance: 110.
