Greens come from behind to snatch point at Romford
SOHAM’S superlative scoring form continued unabated on Saturday as they earned a point in a six-goal thriller at Romford.
Soham Town Rangers 3
The Greens twice squandered the lead in the first half before falling behind in the early stages of the second, only for Matt Robinson to fire home four minutes from time to earn Soham a share of the spoils.
Andy Furnell’s men have smashed in eight goals in just three games so far this season but have only two points to show for their efforts thanks to a leaking defence.
