The Crow Lane club appear to have made great strides during the summer months
Jordan Wigham believes Romford & Gidea Park’s 46-19 home win over Harlow in the London Two North East shows the development of the young group at Crow Lane.
Last season, Park struggled for consistency and as a result needed a win in their final game of the season to stay up.
This time around it has been a very different story with the Crow Lane club third after winning three of their opening four matches.
Romford head coach Wigham said: “This result shows the level of maturity, growth and development our of young side.
“When we conceded last year, our attitude was heads down, but this year it makes us reset and go back to the structure and game we know.”
Park ran in eight tries on Saturday with number eight Ian Semain grabbing a hat-trick in the crushing home victory.
Barney Savill, Paul Webb, Harry Walker, Tyler Ford and Micky James also went over on a great day for the club.
Walker kicked one conversion with Ross Inwood adding the extras on two occasions as Romford clinched another bonus-point triumph.
“Firstly it was good to get the win,” Wigham said. “The performance is always nice, so to get that in place was good and we scored a number of tries, but everyone was made to work hard for them.”
The Romford head coach reserved special praise for Semain, who continued his fine start to the campaign with three tries on Saturday.
Wigham added: “Ian had a great pre-season and has backed that up with some great performances this year.
“He has got that bite and desire back that at times last season went missing. He is putting consistent performances in every week, like all of the squad, so it is extremely pleasing.”
