Nick Reynolds has spoken of his delight at linking up with Paul Martin and Romford once again after it was announced last week that he had rejoined the club following a short spell with Maldon & Tiptree.
The 24-year-old striker found the net 16 times for Boro last season and he loved being amongst the famous Romford team spirit again last weekend despite their 2-1 home defeat to Dereham Town.
“I am delighted to be back,” said Reynolds. “I wasn’t getting a chance at Maldon so once the Romford manager put the seven day (approach) in, it was the obvious choice.
“It is good to be back with the boys. I have missed the banter in the changing rooms. It’s a great club and doesn’t compare to anywhere else.
“The banter in the changing room is good at the moment.”
Reynolds is hoping Romford can start putting a run of wins together, like they did towards the end of last season, and find the consistency their manager Paul Martin has been searching for in recent weeks.
He also has a goal target in mind for the rest of the season and it is more than he managed last year.
The forward added: “It is all about getting a run together. We have got to start being more ruthless on the pitch.
“From speaking to the gaffer, we’ve got to start putting teams to bed in games and killing them off before they’ve even got a chance of getting back into it.
“If we can get a good run and we are in and around it. I can’t see why we can’t do the same again, eighth or above has got to be the target if we are around there by Christmas time.
“When I first spoke to the gaffer, he said the target is 20 goals so that has got to be the target.”
Reynolds is one of the most experienced members in Romford’s team now and he enjoys giving advice when he can.
He added: “At 24 you don’t expect to be one of the oldest heads in the changing room but it is alright. I do enjoy helping them out when I can.”
He is also looking forward to playing against Burnham tomorrow and just hopes if he scores they count this time.
“When I was at Maldon I scored a first half hat-trick against Burnham,” he said.
“But the game got called off so I’ll be hoping for more goals against them this time.”
