Bromley Football Club are delighted to announce that goalkeeper Mark Cousins has signed a new contract at Hayes Lane.
The 34 year old first arrived at the Club in June 2019, signing from National League rivals Barnet. Having played a key part in Bromley’s blistering start to the 2019/20 National League season and quickly becoming a fans’ favourite, Cousins suffered a serious injury in the opening minute of the Ravens’ trip to Yeovil Town, which turned out to be Bromley’s first defeat of the season.
The former Colchester United man made his return to action on 8th February 2020, in a 2-2 draw with Solihull Moors at Hayes Lane, before the early end to the season.
Cousins has featured in all 18 of Bromley’s fixtures this season, making some incredible saves along the way, prompting Neil Smith to reward his consistency.
Manager Neil Smith commented on the news;
“It’s great news for everyone at the Club. We’ve seen how much we missed Mark when he was out injured and he’s started off really well for us this year. To secure him for next season so early is a great move from the Club. He’s a great goalkeeper and also a fantastic person, and I’m delighted he’s staying on board.”
We caught up with Mark following the news and spoke on how it was an easy decision to extend his stay;
“Being at Bromley, I’m happy every day. I love coming here and working hard with all of the coaches, the players and all of the staff around are fantastic. I had no hesitation in wanting to stay for another season.”
