With dwindling players, spirit and wins, the legend that was Romford Town has disipitated into nothingness.
With players unable to make matches on a regular basis and an obvious lack of determination and enthusiasm for the club,
it was thought best that the Towners call it a day rather than drag out any more campaigns.
With two games to go of the final season, manager Rickee Murrell had these parting words, "Romford Town has always been

footballing play in the first season. When Roger scored his first goal. When Jones had his first set to.
Plenty of memories.
