Romford striker Nick Reynolds admitted he was disappointed the 2014/15 season had come to an end, after helping Boro ensure their survival in Ryman North.

Reynolds netted twice in a 3-1 victory over mid-table Ware at Ship Lane as Paul Martin’s men made it three wins in a row and finished three points clear of the bottom three.

And having ended the campaign with 11 goals to his name, including five in those last three fixtures against Thamesmead, Cheshunt and Ware, Reynolds said: “I am a bit gutted the season ended, it’s always nice to be in goalscoring form.

“But yesterday was all about putting in a performance that was going to keep us in the league.”

Reynolds ran through to put Boro ahead after 10 minutes, claiming his 50th goal for the club in the process.

And it was 2-0 six minutes before half time when Joe Scott lobbed Thomas Coulton.

Reynolds slotted home his side on the stroke of half time and felt the opening 45 minutes were Boro at their best.

He added: “In the first half I’ve got to say that’s the best we have played in a long time. We defended well and took our chances when they came.

“The second half was a bit different as the game was over, but we should have scored more.”

Abs Seymour, Scott, Reynolds and Loui Hazelwood all had chances to add to Romford’s tally before Khale Dacosta hit back for the visitors.

But it was only a consolation for Ware and Reynolds was relieved to see Romford avoid the drop, adding: “I should have had another two myself and that could cost you in other games.

“But yesterday was our day, and it was great for the fans to finish the season on a high.”
