Romford boss pleased after progress boosts finances
Romford boss Paul Martin says his team can play a lot better after beating North Greenford United 3-2 in the FA Trophy preliminary round.
A first half double from Chinedu McKenzie on his debut for Boro and a third after the break from Nick Reynolds was enough to see the hosts through at Ship Lane.
The win sets up a tie with Slough Town at the end of the month but Martin was happier the club were able to win £2,500 in prize money.
“I’m delighted we’re able to progress and get the money for winning tie because it is much needed,” said Martin.
“It was good that Chinedu scored a couple but in truth we won playing poorly. I’ve seen better matches down Parsloes Park.”
Recently Martin has said his team have been turning in ‘Jekyll & Hyde’ performances - playing brilliantly in one match before stuttering the next.
And the Romford boss hopes his team will quickly put an end to that pattern of form.
He added: “We seem to play well then play bad. Luckily we got through against North Greenford despite playing badly and we know it can get a lot better.
“We’ve got a tough couple of weeks coming up so hopefully we can stop going through that pattern.”
