Bostik North: Romford 2 (Bolton 34, Reynolds 54) Aveley 0

Romford returned to winning ways in the Bostik North with a 2-0 win at home to Aveley.

After losing at Felixstowe & Walton United at the weekend, Boro collected an impressive result to move up to fourth in the table.

Paul Martin’s men took the lead in the 34th minute when Max Bolton found the target.

The Rookery Hill club doubled their advantage in the 54th minute when Romford’s all-time leading scorer Nick Reynolds nabbed his first of the season.

Crucially, Boro were also able to keep a first clean sheet since the opening day of the season in beating the Millers.

Their previous shutout came against Great Wakering Rovers, who Martin’s men host in the FA Trophy extra preliminary round on Sunday.
