Roger Johnson signs up

  • Men's

Bromley Football Club are pleased to announce that experienced defender Roger Johnson has committed his future to the Ravens for the upcoming campaign. 

The former Premier League Captain and centre-back has signed a new deal, keeping him at Hayes Lane for the foreseeable future. Roger becomes the latest man to sign up to Neil Smith’s squad and adds a wealth of experience to an already strong defensive unit, brought together by the Bromley manager.

Johnson first signed for the Ravens back in October 2017 and made his first appearance in a goalless draw against Dover Athletic in the FA Cup. The former Cardiff City, Birmingham City and Wolves central defender became a stalwart in the Bromley back line last season and will continue to provide guidance to the younger members of the squad alongside the management team.

Manager Neil Smith was pleased to keep the former Premier League man back at Bromley; “Roger came in at a difficult time last year, but his experience is immense and it really helped us, especially getting to the 1st Round of the FA Cup and the Final of the FA Trophy. With a relatively young squad, it’s important to have someone like Roger around and he’s always a pleasure to work with. The players have and will continue to learn from him.”

Roger himself added; “I’m glad to get the deal done. It’s been a long process, pretty much since the end of the season. We can just move forward now and I can focus on getting fit and being ready for the new season.”

Roger Johnson joins the following players in committing to the Ravens for next season:

  • Tobi Adebayo-Rowling
  • Kyle De Silva
  • Alan Dunne
  • Jake Goodman
  • David Gregory
  • Jordan Higgs
  • Jack Holland
  • Dan Johnson
  • Adam Mekki
  • Marc-Anthony Okoye
  • George Porter
  • Frankie Raymond
  • Bobby-Joe Taylor

Neil Smith remains in talks with members of last season’s squad and potential further signings. As always, the official website will bring you any further news as soon as we have it.
