April proved to be one of the best months of the year as we began by beating fellow play-off chasers Solihull 4-0 before clinching 1-1 draws against Barnet and Boreham Wood respectively.
After a 3-0 win away at Gateshead, the play-offs were in touching distance and after a mid-week draw away at Halifax before a 2-0 win against eventual play-off finalists Chesterfield, that top seven spot was secured.
James Vennings bagged a brilliant goal away at Oldham as it was confirmed that we would face Woking away in the play-off eliminators.
The hosts were arguably favourites going into the game and their chances rose higher when Rohan Ince opened the scoring on 13 minutes.
However, Cheek slotted home a 60th minute penalty to level the scores before Deji Elerewe popped up with one of the most important goals in the club’s history, heading in the winner to book our place in the semi-final for the first time ever.
Chesterfield stood in the way of a second visit to Wembley in as many years as they won 3-2 to end Bromley’s season, but what a campaign is was!
After a tricky start to April, losing at home to Welling United, Bromley Women secured one of their biggest victories of the season, beating Maidstone United 8-0. Charlotte Lee bagged four whilst Beth Hull recorded a brace. Eloise Bovill also scored, as did Academy player and Community coach Charlotte Bennett.
That victory marked the end of the season for Bromley Women who, like the men’s side, secured their highest ever finish, ending the campaign in fourth.
Our U21’s concluded their season with a 0-0 draw away at Oxford City in their only game in April. The result meant the Ravens finished third, just 10 points off Aldershot who won the league.
