Pre Season Update- Chelmsford City next


Boro’s pre season campaign has got off to a decent  start against worthwhile opposition .

Last Saturday Romford turned up determined to beat their higher ranked opponents and duly did so with an impressive 2-1 victory . The rustiness of our boys clearly on show as we succumbed to a 2-1 defeat , a goal in each half for the visitors and a consolation penalty by the gift from the Gods George Aresti putting a slightly better gloss on the result . The performance was not great but what was fantastic was to see you all back at the Boro with a really healthy crowd in good voice and a reminder of what we have missed  for so any months .

Tuesday night was better as we ran in 4 goals against a rather depleted Royston Town side who had to arrive with a number of first team players missing after  precautionary covid isolation measures taken by  many of their squad . Fair play and all credit to them for bringing a young side and fulfilling the fixture , this is why we always look to have a game  with Royston pre season and why we are happy to call them our friends  . The fitness levels of the boys were visibly improved on the  previous match and a couple of good appearances from some fringe players shows the strength in depth we have .

This will be tested on Saturday when we welcome Chelmsford City of the National League South , a great fixture for us and one where we hope many will attend as we are sure it will be competitive and good value .
