A young Bromley side, made up of majority U18’s, beat Dulwich Hamlet 4-3 on penalties following a 2-2 draw to retain the Glyn Beverly Memorial Cup at Champion Hill.
It proved to be a positive first half for the youngsters who tried to keep Dulwich at bay and succeeded for the majority of the first 45.
Shannon Brown unleashed a fantastic strike from range which almost rocketed into the top left corner, but a deflection took it out for a corner.
Former Bromley man Adrian Clifton started for the hosts and proved a handful as Dulwich ended the half with the better of the chances and eventually poked their noses in front on 37 minutes. Luke Wanadio struck low and hard from the edge of the box, beating the Bromley trialist ‘keeper to his right.
The visitors were back level shortly after the break following a fantastic Soul Kader free-kick flew straight into the top corner.
However, it was short-lived as Dulwich went up the other end and regained their lead as we creeped up to the hour mark.
The hosts continued to pile on the pressure, but the game would go to a penalty shoot-out after substitute Finn Roberts buried in a late equaliser, via a deflection.
A nervy penalty shoot-out then ended 4-3 to the Ravens as the Glyn Beverly Memorial Cup returned to BR2
