Byron Webster reaches 150 appearances for Bromley

Saturday’s trip to Gateshead proved to be skipper Byron Webster’s 150th appearance in a Bromley shirt.

Webster signed for Bromley at the end of the delayed 2020/21 season from EFL side Carlisle United, where he had spent just the one season and made his debut for the Ravens in a home National League fixture against Torquay United on 18 October 2020, where he was the goal scorer in the 2-1 defeat. 

Since arriving at Hayes Lane, the 37-year-old cemented his position in the Bromley defence, and took over as captain when Jack Holland left. He has played a vital part in Bromley’s success since then, leading his team to three play-off campaigns and proudly led his team out at Wembley in 2022 when Bromley won the FA Trophy for the very first time. 

Webster started his career by coming through the youth ranks to earn his first professional contract with York City in 2004, and spent three years at Bootham Crescent before moving on loan to Harrogate Town and Whitby Town respectively. In August 2007, Webster then moved abroad, signing for FC Banik of the Czech Republic, where he was to remain for two seasons, but returned to Yorkshire in 2009 when he put pen to paper at Doncaster Rovers. 

During his time at Donny, he had loan spells at Hereford United and Northampton Town, which led to his next port of call when he signed for Yeovil Town – then in the Football League – and was in the Somerset team that earned promotion to the Championship in 2013. 

Near-neighbours, Millwall, secured his services in June 2014 and he remained at the Den for five years, clocking up 138 appearances and finding the net eight times before departing to Scunthorpe United in January 2019. He remained with the Irons for the remainder of that season before joining Carlisle United.
