Forster returns!

  • Men's

Bromley Football Club are delighted to announce the signing of Harry Forster on a permanent contract.

21 year old winger Forster first joined Watford as an U11, signing his first professional deal in 2018, and being rewarded for his performances with the U23s with a new contract in August 2020, following time on loan at St Albans City. He was then loaned out to Bromley in September 2020, and caught the eyes of supporters with his pace, trickery, and ability to change a game.

Following a bright start to life at Hayes Lane, Forster’s loan was extended until the end of the season. However, in February 2021, he suffered a hamstring injury in a match against Dagenham & Redbridge, and it was feared he would miss the rest of the season.

However, Forster made an unexpected return to action for Bromley towards the end of the season, playing a part in Bromley’s playoff push and seeing the Ravens reach the eliminator stage via a 7th place finish for the first time in the Club’s history.

Forster was delighted to make a return to Hayes Lane, a place he felt at home at last season: “I’m so pleased to be back after enjoying my time on loan here greatly last season. It’s a really exciting time for the Club with the new facilities and infrastructure. It’s the perfect place for us to work hard and improve as players, and the foundations have been laid for us to perform week in, week out and go one better than we did last year and get this club into the football league for the first time. There’s a real togetherness in this group and I’m really excited by our prospects and the season ahead.”

Manager Andy Woodman added: “Harry is a player who needs no introduction! There’s real pace and directness in the way he plays, so it’s great to have him on board. He can really light up a game and he’s a great professional and character, and another player with a background at a Premier League Club.”
