Currently Playing In:

Isthmian Division One North


After enjoying life among the leaders in non-league football as the original Romford,with a ground used by England for Amateur Internationals, the football club officials have shown admirable courage and dedication while battling to keep a competitive non-league club alive and competing, often having to share the grounds of local rivals. 

The journey experienced by the club is well documented in their own excellent web site but in 1992 we take up the story as Romford Football Club made a comeback in The Essex Senior league. Manager Lyndon Lynch helped the club consolidate in county competition but the mergers with Ford United and then Collier Row at least brought promotion into The Isthmian League as Romford FC.

Problems arose after two years and three campaigns battling at the bottom of the League led to the club stepping down from The Isthmian League and returning in 2002 to The Essex Senior League. Ex player Mark Reed quickly took responsibility for playing matters and the club enjoyed five consistent seasons. However, it was Paul Martin who was in charge when ‘The Boro’ returned as Essex Champions to The Isthmian League in 2009.
