The Romford-based club made it four consecutive home wins in the National League South Two thanks to braces from Gell, Bailey Chittock, as well as goals from Alan Lack, Kamil Kinkor, Jake Hall, Sam Roberts, Matthew Hamilton and debutant Ewan Hill.

The 17-year-old also believes it was a good game to get everyone playing and build some confidence going forward.

“I think we all enjoyed last night’s win especially after some difficult and tight games in the last few weeks,” Gell said.

“That game allowed us to play all three lines and get a few guys their first goals of the season which was nice.

“I think the whole team agrees that now we’re in the full swing of the season.

“We have finally got up to speed and can now work on chemistry that we may not have had when we started the season which has led us to the four consecutive home wins.”

The former Chelmsford junior also believes it was a vital win – despite coming against the Lions who are stills searching for their first point of the season.

“Other scores across the league prove how unpredictable and important each game is and we need to put everything in to every game we can.”

The forward was also delighted to nab two goals and three assists in the match but feels everyone should be proud of their recent run of form.

“Last night’s personal success really felt good and I think is a confidence boost for myself.

“But as long as we’re winning I think the whole team can be happy with themselves.”
