The U16 Youth Academy’s first competitive fixture since the return of football saw them host Pennington FC in the U15’s JPL National Cup semi-final.
The game was a great advert for youth football, with both teams demonstrating their quality throughout the entire 80 minutes.
Bromley took the lead through a great finish from Hudson-Broadway, after Corbin played a superb pass splitting the defensive line. Bromley went into the half time interval with a narrow 1-0 lead.
As expected, Pennington started to apply greater pressure within Bromley’s defensive third, equalising after an under hit back pass was intercepted by the Pennington forward, slotting the ball into an empty net.
Bromley showed maturity after conceding and regained the lead 15 minutes from time when the ball fell loose to Rye on the edge of the 18-yard box, curling a brilliant effort into the top corner.
Everyone at the Club wishes the U16s all the best in their final and we will of course keep you all updated once we have news to share.
