Romford youngsters chase final spot

Lunchtime showdown in Canada

Four Romford youngsters will look to book their place in the final of the Riverside Rangers tournament in Canada this lunchtime.

Romford Hurricanes duo Denis Bell-Blake and Glenn Billing and Emerson Park twins Charlie and Sonny Phillips - who play for Slough - helped the England under-14s, who are co-coached by former Romford Raiders import Brent Pope, to a 4-1 win over the host club in their last group game last night.

That enabled them to finish the pool stage with three wins and an overtime defeat, earning them a semi-final meeting with Whitby at 1pm (GMT) today.
