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.
The in-form David Cobb opened the scoring for the Greens with the first decisive move of the match after 12 minutes, the former St Ives man notching his third goal of the season after latching on to a poor clearance.
Romford’s Nick Reynolds levelled the score less than 10 minutes later as his shot dribbled over the line after striking a post but Soham were quick to respond and regained the lead a few minutes later as Cobb squared for Luke Hipwell to drill home in the area.

It was the home side who would have the final say in an absorbing opening half however, as Huyn Jin-Lee picked up a loose ball on the edge of the area and lashed past Dan Bircham to level the scores once more.
Buoyed by their equaliser, the hosts emerged refreshed for the second half and needed less than 10 minutes to move into the lead as Reynolds notched his second of the match from close range after a brief goal mouth scramble.
The remained open in the ensuing minutes as both sides sought a decisive goal but it was the visitors who would strike the telling blow as Robinson latched on to Richard Gammon’s flick-on to bundle home.
