Browns boys record first home win in the Millers Invitational Challenge Cup
The blues overcame a determined Romford team as Jody Brown recorded his first win on 'home' soil coming away with a 2-0 win in the inaugural Aveley Miller's Challenge Cup.
Goals from blues stalwart Kenny Beaney and newcomer Dumebi Dumaka was enough to overcome a competitive Borough side who came close on several occasions.
Manager Jody Brown took the opportunity to give some trialists a run out in the closing stages of the game, with fans favourite Leroy Griffiths coming on late in the second half.
The match proved to be a good workout for the squad in difficult conditions, and the blues will now be looking to maintain their winning home form as they take on hosts and landlords Aveley FC in the second day of the tournament this Sunday (27th).
