Romford forward Nick Reynolds was delighted after scoring the opener against Waltham Abbey in the Ryman North last night and in the process help his team pick up three points.

The 38th minute strike was also an historic one because it meant Reynolds became Boro’s all time top league goalscorer, taking over from Kurt Smith.

He is still short of becoming the all time top goalscorer for the club, but he was thrilled to find the net at Ship Lane.

Paul Martin’s team had suffered a disappointing 1-0 loss to Haringey Borough on Saturday, but they managed to bounce back against Abbey.

Reynolds said: “I’m buzzing, it feels great to be part of history for a club that I love so much!

“Personally I am just happy to be back on the score sheet again, hopefully I can kick on now and make that a regular thing.

“In terms of the result, we had to win, and at training on Monday the management made it clear what they wanted from us and we have gone out and put a performance in against Waltham Abbey.”

The win was Romford’s third in the division this season and moves them up to 16th in the table with 13 points from 12 matches.

Boro have struggled for inconsistency this campaign, often achieving a good result and following it up with a poor one.

So Reynolds was pleased to see the whole team deliver on Wednesday and hopes they can get on a good run of form now.

He added: “It’s the first time in a while since all the starting 11 and players coming off the bench have done enough.

“There are still areas we need to improve, but hopefully now we can get a bit of consistency and a run of wins going!”
