Report: Tonbridge Angels 1-4 Bromley

  • Men's

Bromley travelled to the Longmead Stadium for their penultimate pre-season fixture on Saturday afternoon.

Two goals a piece for Ben Williamson and Joe Kizzi secured a pre-season win in what was a very professional performance from the Ravens.

The Ravens went ahead ten minutes in, as good work from Trialist A set Michael Cheek in down the left, and he played a perfect cross into Ben Williamson, who tapped beyond Ted McDonald.

Minutes later, the Ravens were 2-0 up. Luke Coulson’s corner from the right caused chaos in the Tonbridge box, allowing Joe Kizzi to take advantage of a poor clerarance and rifle home from the centre of the box, via a slight deflection.

2-0 would become 3-0 not long after, and in some style. Williamson gained possession on the right and cut into the box, before using a defender as a screen and curling an unstoppable effort into the top corner, giving McDonald no chance.

The Ravens would be frustrated though, as Tonbridge hit back on the stroke of half time, as Sonny Miles helped a header over the line to give the Angels hope.

However, around a minute into the second half, Bromley restored their three goal just a minute into the second half. A Luke Coulson free kick was floated into the box with precision, and Kizzi was only more than happy to loop a header over McDonald into the net.

A flurry of substitutions for both sides slowed down the game a little, with few chances falling to either side. A Tonbridge trialist should have reduced the arrears, but he could only direct a free header into Mark Cousins’ arms following a Khale Da Costa cross.
