Preview: Ravens vs The Shaymen

  • Men's

This weekend Bromley were due to travel to Yorkshire to play FC Halifax Town.

However, with poor weather conditions forecast in Halifax an agreement was made to reverse the National League fixtures this season. Pete Wild’s men will now make the journey to Hayes Lane for a 3pm kick-off.

The two Clubs first met at The Shay on 22 August 2015, when Bromley were leading 2-0 in the 90th minute but then proceeded to concede two goals in four minutes of added time to draw 2-2.

At the end of that season Halifax were relegated but were promoted just a year later. Since then, Bromley have visited Yorkshire on three occasions, losing on two by the same 2-1 scoreline and drawing the other 2-2.

FC Halifax Town have won six and drawn five of their seventeen League games, giving them twenty-three points from the League fixtures completed so far.

On Tuesday evening they lost at home to Southport in the FA Trophy, and their last scheduled League fixture last Tuesday week against Hartlepool United was postponed due to a frozen pitch.

Bromley’s will now make the journey to The Shay on Saturday 24 April.
