Boston United[edit]

On 18 February 2005, Roma was sent out on a one-month loan to Football League Two side Boston United to gain first team experience,[2] where he made two appearances but failed to score.


Roma also spent three months on loan in the Football Conference with Staffordshire club Tamworth. During his time with The Lambs, Roma started all 15 games, however was unable to find the back of the net. Following his release from Sheffield United, Roma joined Tamworth for pre season training after recovering from a serious knee injury which he sustained whilst at Sheffield United.[3]

Later career[edit]

Following a successful interview, Roma was given the managers job on a permanent basis following Trinity's 4-1 victory over Bradford Park Avenue on the final day of the 2015/16 season.[5]
