Lee Fulling misses out as the ball runs across goal in the first half. Collier Row & Romford went ahead direct from a free-kick through Steve
Portway
on his return to the Club after six months at Purfleet, but were behind by half-time and 4-1 down before Portway scored again
from the penalty spot. He was then carried off with an ankle injury that would keep him out for six weeks, and Boro were unable to complete
a comeback. This was something of a grudge match as most of the Collier Row squad had decamped to Barking following the merger. Boro
players past and future also pictured are (from left) Jamie Holloway, Mark Brett (obscured by Holloway), Paul Rogan and Marc Baker.
