Weekend round-up

It proved to be a very busy footballing weekend for everyone involved at Bromley FC and here’s how our sides got on:

Friday 30th September 2022 

Bromley U18s 4-1 Tonbridge Angels U18s 

An eventful game on Friday night presented goals galore as Bromley’s U18s triumphed 4-2 over Tonbridge Angels, despite trailing 2-1 at half time.

The victory secures the young Ravens’ place in the FA Youth Cup third qualifying round, with goals from captain Frankie Hvid, a cool finish from Shakur Beech and a brace from Lateef Adaja, setting them up with a mouth-watering fixture at home to Maidenhead United, with fans hoping that the same passion and spirit can be shown in that tie too.  

Saturday 1st October 

Maidstone United Reserves 1-5 Bromley U23

The first game of the month, a cup game, was coolly brushed aside as Bromley’s strong U23s beat Maidstone United Reserves 5-1, the second time in under a month that Maidstone have been beaten by the Ravens. Their next fixture is at Woking U23 on Thursday evening.

Saturday 1st October 

Solihull Moors 2-2 Bromley

Saturday saw Andy Woodman’s thriving side travel to Damsom Park to face a Solihull Moors that sat one place below Bromley in the table.

An enthralling game ensued, which saw Bromley take the lead in the 34th minute through a George Alexander wondergoal, a bicycle kick that rocketed into the top right hand corner.

Further joy was to come for Bromley, thanks to a Jude Arthurs header making it 2-0. However, Solihull got the better of the visitors, aided heavily by the mysterious addition of 7 added minutes, on top of 5 in the first half.

A 90th minute goal from Josh Kelly seemed to be merely a consolation, but an Alex Reid equaliser in the 95th minute stole two points away from Bromley. Despite the result, lots of positives can be taken from the game, such as the fans, who were in fine voice as usual. 

Sunday 2nd October  

Bromley Women 0-9 Millwall Lionesses 

A historic day for the club witnessed a record Bromley Women’s attendance of 669 people, all of who enjoyed a variety of events, ranging from face painting and arts and crafts, to meeting the players themselves, an experience for people that they will never forget.

The final score of 9-0 to Millwall pales into insignificance when compared to the monumental progress made on the day, both on and off the pitch.

The team’s next fixture sees them play Montpelier Vila away on 9th October, an opportunity for the team to bounce back and continue their impressive league form that has seen them win four games out of five. 

So after an impressive weekend of football, the Ravens will be looking to sustain this form as we progress into October, with some crucial fixtures coming up for all teams.
