Romford’s men and women enjoyed derby wins in their latest league outings.

Ashley Meyer’s early goal was cancelled out by Upminster thirds, who were denied further goals by some fine Tom Woodman saves.

After a rallying team talk during the break, Romford regained the lead in the second half with a quickfire double from Jamie Norris.

Robert Kepple deflected in a well-worked short corner to seal a 4-1 victory and keep Romford in second place in East Five South East behind leaders Plashet ahead of a trip to Clacton seconds.

Meanwhile, the women got the better of Havering thirds in Essex Division Two thanks to a goal from Emma James early in the second half, while Lean Butcher had a last-gasp effort ruled out.

Nardina Chuter was named player of the match for Havering.

The men’s seconds beat Upminster fifths, but the thirds had to settle for a share of the spoils after a 3-3 draw with Old Southendians.
