Romford kicked off their pre-season programme with a 1-0 win at Essex Senior League side Saffron Walden Town.
Boro dominated first-half proceedings without creating too many clear-cut chances, but ought to have led at the break.
The only goal of the contest came after 57 minutes before the home side created a number of opportunities as Boro made a number of substitutions.
