ROMFORD 1 BRIGHTLINGSEA 4
BRIGHTLINGSEA Regent capitalised on an early mistake to run out comfortable winners away to Romford.
A mix-up between James Ishmail and Callum Chafer gifted ex-Romford striker Tom Richardson a second-minute tap-in to give the vistors the advantage.
Danny Cossington diverted a cross into his own net to double the visitors’ lead, but Romford pulled one back when Chinedu McKenzie converted a penalty rebound.
Connor Witherspoon hit Regent’s third before Romford were reduced to nine men, with Shamido Pedulu scoring the fourth.
