Romford striker Nick Reynolds believes the team are starting to gel nicely ahead of the new Ryman North campaign.

Reynolds netted both goals in a 2-1 friendly win over Ryman Premier outfit Enfield Town at Ship Lane on Saturday, with Boro set to visit London Colney tonight (Tuesday).

He said: “As a team we have got to be happy with the result, beating a team from the league above is not something you will do often.

“I thought we defended really well as a team which shows that we are all starting to get to know each other a lot better. The on-pitch talking was great.

“I think we were a bit wasteful with possession at times, but that’s definitely something we can work on.”

Reynolds headed Boro in front at the weekend, only for the visitors to hit back almost immediately to level.

And the PE teacher struck again for the winner after seeing a second-half penalty saved.

He added: “The first was a great delivery from Jordan (Thomas) into a dangerous area and I managed to hold off a defender and get a head on it, back across the keeper into the far corner.

“The second probably went from being a very embarrassing movement to one of the easier finishes I’ve ever had!

“It was a terrible penalty, the keeper stayed up for a long time and I changed my mind at the last minute.

“Luckily enough his save rebounded to me to tap in from six yards.”

After tonight’s trip to London Colney, Boro welcome Basildon United to Ford Sports Newbury Park on Thursday (7pm), before visiting Welwyn Garden City on Saturday.
