Brief Overview

Written by Josh Hardy

Bromley Football Club were founded in 1892 when they were playing in the South London League, and then they became founding members of the Southern League in 1894.

The Ravens play their home games at Hayes Lane, but this wasn’t always the case, the Club played at Queensmead Recreation Ground before moving to Glebe Road and then Plaistow Cricket Club, before they moved to Hayes Lane in 1938.

Bromley’s first piece of silverware came in 1896 when they were crowned London League champions shortly after becoming founding members.  They then switched to the Kent League before returning to the division.

In 1907, the Club were founder members of the Spartan League before joining the Isthmian League the following season, winning back-to-back titles.

They won the FA Amateur Cup in 1910/11, beating Bishop Auckland 1-0 in the final; they’d go on to repeat their success in this competition, as they beat Erith & Belvedere 1-0 in the 1937/38 season. During the time between both FA Amateur Cup victories, the club saw themselves win the Athenian League in 1922/23.

In the same season as their second FA Amateur Cup win, they also reached the FA Cup for the first time, beating King’s Lynn in the first round, but losing 4-1 to Scarborough in the second. They’d go on to repeat this feat the season after as they played Football League opposition for the first time, losing 8-1 to Lincoln City in the second round.

1948/49 was yet another successful season for The Ravens, winning the Athenian League title and the FA Amateur Cup.

They rejoined the Isthmian League in 1958, in which they finished runners-up in their first season, and winning the league in their second. They’d also go on to win the league again in 1960/61.

In the 1974/75 season, Bromley found themselves in Division One, however, they finished bottom that season. Two seasons after relegation, The Raven’s played in the FA Cup first round  for the first time in over twenty years, losing 7-0 to Swindon Town.

Bromley started their rise into the Conference Leagues in 2006/07, after yo-yoing between the Premier Division, Division One and Division Two since 1976. In 06/07, they finished runners up in the Premier Division. They went onto beat AFC Wimbledon 1-0 in the play-off semi-finals and then coming out on top against Billericay Town on penalties in the final, which saw them promoted to the Conference League South.

In the 2014/15 season, Bromley were crowned champions of the National League South, earning them promotion to the National League, where they have been everpresent since.

Bromley also visited Wembley in 2018 for the FA Trophy Final against Brackley town, which they lost 5-4 to Brackley Town on penalties after the game finished 1-1.

With the EFL firmly in their sights during the 2020-21 season, it was a play-off finish for the Ravens. However, it wasn’t to be as they fell to defeat at the hands of eventual winners, Hartlepool United.

The following season ended in silverware as Andy Woodman’s side managed to erase the heartbreak of 2018 by winning the Buildbase FA Trophy. Going into the game off the back of a tough run of results and coming up against a strong Wrexham side who were eyeing promotion through the play-offs, the Ravens went into the game as underdogs. However, it would be the BR2 side who came away victorious under the Wembley arch, thanks to a 63rd minute Michael Cheek winner.

Our First match

Written by John Self and Roy Oliver

Bromley Football Club were formed in 1892 and did not enter a League or Cup competition in that inaugural season, instead playing only friendly fixtures. 

The first one of these was played on 1st October 1892 against Westminster FC, and resulted in a 1-0 victory for Bromley. 

The players representing Bromley that day were: goal: Ridgeway; full backs: Hatfield, Butler; half backs: Bert Gedney, Hutley, Hopton; forwards: Borer (right), Newman, Jeary (Capt), Thomas and F.Gedney (left). 

The first ever competitive match was played on 14 October 1893 in an away South London League fixture against Anerley. There seems to be some confusion as to where the game was played, as one newspaper at the time stated Elmers End, and another said Norwood and, as the two communities adjoin each other, the conclusion is that it was on the boundary of both places. 

However, it made little difference to Bromley as they romped home to a 5-1 victory, proving too strong for their opponents. 

Team: Edgecombe; Jeary, Bert Gedney; W Hopton, Hutton, Fawsitt; Bunbury, Borer F.Gedney, E.Gedney, Devlin 

A feature of this match was that a ‘brake’ was ordered to transport the players from Bromley, but Bunbury choose to travel by train.  There was an accident on the London, Chatham & Dover Railway line and the train was delayed between Shortlands and Beckenham Junction. With time getting on towards kick off, Bunbury, along with a Monsieur Govian, jumped off the train and ran along the track towards Beckenham, where they hired a horse drawn cab and, changing clothes on the way, arrived at the ground just as the players were coming out to line up for the kick off. 

That season Bromley went on to win the League title, and also beat Folkestone in the Kent Junior Cup Final which was played at Faversham.  Both the League and the Cup were won at the first attempt. 

Athenian League

Written by John Self

Bromley joined the Athenian League at the end of World War I in the Summer of 1919, and remained in that competition until May 1952 when they switched to the Isthmian League. 

There were much divided thoughts as to which League was best. For many people it was always the Athenian League, but for many others it was the Isthmian League. Certainly in the 1920s and 30s. But there are no real statistics to prove one way or the other, as both Leagues had their fair share of honours when Clubs were drawn against each other. 

In the early 1950s the Isthmian League decided to increase their numbers and slowly poached some of the more successful Clubs from the Athenian, which eventually included: Sutton United, Tooting & Mitcham United, Hitchin Town to name a few, after Bromley and Barking had left the Athenian League in 1952. 

Bromley finished their first season in the Athenian League in fifth position, and were Champions four years later in 1923 for the first time, following which – up until he commencement of hostilities of World War II – they finished anywhere between second place (which was achieved in 1936) and fourteenth position which was the lowest placings in 1933 and 1934. 

After the War, they were Champions on two more occasions, in 1949 and two years later in 1951. 

During their spell in this League they played 698 fixtures, of which they were victorious on 312 occasions, whilst loosing 268 games.  The other 118 matches were drawn. In the process they scored 1,602 goals, and conceded 1,478. 

The highest victory came on Boxing Day 1945, when Bromley defeated Redhill 13-1 here at Hayes Lane. 

Five goals from Martin Ruddy, a hat trick from Scott, two each from Viles and Reece, and one from Stone made up the scorers; and three days later, Bromley won the return fixture by 7-0 in Surrey. 

The heaviest defeats came in 1929-30 Season at Barnet, 2-10; 1931-32 at Romford 2-10; at Hampstead Town 1-11 in 1932-33 season, and at Barking 1-11 in 1933-34. 

It was against Barking that the highest ‘away’ victory came on 29 September 1945, when Bromley won 8-0 but due to bomb damage at the Essex sides ground, the game was played at Bromley where hat tricks from Crowther and Ruddy, and a goal each from Coulson and Stone, did the damage. 

League Honours

Written by John Self

In the early day’s Bromley switched Leagues on a regular basis and, after finishing top of the South London League in 1894 they changed to the Southern League Division 2, which they ended two years later as bottom club. 

London League Division 2 was joined in 1896/97 season and they promptly became Champions at the first attempt, as they did when they became founder members of the Spartan League in 1907.  This led to joining the Isthmian League one year later, which saw Bromley top the table in their first two seasons in their new surroundings, meaning that they had secured a hat trick of League titles. 

After the end of the First World War, Bromley joined the Athenian League and, in their fourth season in that competition, they became League Champions in 1923.  They were successful again in the 1948/49 season, and were Champions for a third time two seasons later. 

They were then elected back to the Isthmian League in 1952 and were to win that competition for a third time in 1954, finishing ahead of Walthamstow Avenue and reversing the positions of the two Clubs one year earlier. 

The same two Clubs made the running for the 1961 title, and Bromley came out on top by one point with a final day victory over St Albans City to leap frog the East London side by one point, who had lost their final game the previous evening at Wimbledon, who finished in third position. 

Bromley did not win another League title until 2015, when they topped the Conference South League table, which gave them promotion to their present status. 

However, following promotion and relegation being introduced to Non-League Football in 1973, and the setting up of the various Steps 1 to 7 by the Football Association at the turn of the Century, Bromley have been promoted several times.  

In the 1970s and 80s Bromley were relegated three times, only to regain promotion as Runners Up on three occasions.  

Another relegation in 1999 was followed by promotion to the Premier Division of the Isthmian League via the newly introduced Play Off system, before ending the 2006/07 season in Runners Up position and as a consequence of that, Bromley had to play through the play off system again and got their just reward with promotion to Conference South whey there were to stay for eight seasons.

Where were they to play?

All Bromley fans knew for certain in September 1986 that they would be travelling to the South Coast on the 20th to fulfil their Vauxhall Opel League (Isthmian) Premier Division fixture against Worthing.

They were left in the dark until very late as to whether it would be Worthing’s Woodside Road ground, or Bognor Regis’s Nyewood Lane base. A decision being made only on the Thursday before the Saturday game.

The complication arose because Worthing’s ground was one of several to be closed down by the League Management as they did not meet with the League’s ground grading requirements. In Worthing’s case, a fire which had destroyed much of a stand towards the end of the previous season, was still in the process of being repaired.

The Sussex Club had been playing home fixtures at Bognor Regis and, on a couple of occasions, at Brighton & Hove Albion’s Goldstone Ground. In the event it was Nyewood Lane that Bromley travelled to, where a 1-1 draw was fought out by the two Clubs in the lower reaches of the League table at that time.

Over 10 goal games

In the past there has been a number of games whereby Bromley and some opposition teams have scored double figures in their results in various competitions. 

Of the fifteen games played over the years where Bromley have recorded score line of ten goals or more, all but one has been a home fixture. 

In the 1910/11 season Bromley beat RMLI (Chatham) by ten goals without reply in the Kent Amateur Cup; whilst one year later the same score line applied to the Kent League fixture against Sheppey United, before the hostilities of World War One interrupted proceedings. 

After the War, Boxing Day 1920 was the next occasion of a double-digit score line, when Cray Wanderers were overcome 11-1 in a Kent Senior Cup replay, after the two sides had earlier drawn 2-2 at St Mary Cray. 

Luton Clarence lost their 1923-24 Athenian League fixture by ten goals to nil; before West Norwood were despatched by twelve goals on 29 November 1924, in the same competition. 

The Kent Amateur Cup provided the last score line of ten or more between the Wars, when RM (Chatham) conceded eleven goals without reply in the 1932/33 season. 

After the War, which was probably the most successful period in Bromley’s history, Martin Ruddy scored five of the goals in Bromley’s largest victory over any Club on Boxing Day 1945, when Redhill were the victims of a 13-1 Athenian League score line. 

George Brown was on target six times as Bromley defeated Folkestone by ten goals to three on 25January 1947; and one year later he scored four goals in the ten-nil thrashing of Woolwich Poly on 14 February 1948; as he did two years later in Bromley’s eleven nil victory of Maidstone United on 11 February 1950.  All three fixtures were in the Kent Amateur Cup. 

Just one month before the Maidstone result, on 14 January 1950, Brown netted eight times – yes, 8 times – in the 11-2 FA Amateur Cup victory over Thameside Amateurs, who Bromley had also beaten 7-0 two weeks earlier in the Kent Amateur Cup. 

The Kent Amateur Cup was also the Competition that Bromley defeated Chislehurst Athletic in, on 12 March 1955, by ten goals to two. 

Sheppey United were again on the wrong end of a ten one score line in the Kent Floodlight competition on 15 March 1966, and the last home victory was against the Civil Service on 18 September 1971 in an FA Cup Qualifying Round when Bromley won 10-0. 

The Civil Service had been allowed into the competition by the Football Association for that season to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the competition, as they were one of the original entrees in 1871 when the FA Cup originated. 

The only away victory was the last time that score lines of this nature were achieved.  The occasion was an FA Cup Qualifying round at Chertsey on 4 September 1982, when Bromley overcame the Surrey club by twelve goals to one. 

Defeats 

Bromley have suffered six defeats of ten goals or more, which all came in the period 1929 to 1935 and all came on their opponents’ grounds except one. 

The exception came on 1 November 1930 at the old Hayes Lane ground when Tunbridge Wells inflicted a 10-2 FA Cup defeat on Bromley. 

Prior to this, one season earlier Barnet defeated Bromley by the same score line in the Athenian League fixture of that season, as did Romford in the following season, also in the Athenian League. 

The 1932/33 it was Hampstead Town who scored ten goals to Bromley’s solitary one, and Barking Town on 17 February 1934 went one better by scoring eleven, both of which were League fixtures.  

Bromley were also on the wrong end of an eleven two score line that season in the Kent Senior Cup against London Paper Mills. 

The ‘goal’ that was not a goal

Bromley had drawn Kingstonian in a Second Round London Senior Cup tie, which was played at Hayes Lane on 7 January 1967, when play was held up for three minutes in the 72nd minute while Kingstonian players protested very strongly to the referee – Mr A Houghton – for a ‘goal’ that he had disallowed when Tony Slade’s shot had entered the net but came out of a hole in the side netting, and the match official indicated a goal kick.

Kingstonian were trailing 2-1 at the time, and the protests made little difference as the official stuck with his decision.

The visitors equalised in the 84th minute from the penalty spot, and this set off more protests as the ball exited the net through the same hole, leading to the scorer Paul Vince being shown a yellow card.

Bromley’s Secretary stated after the game that there was no problem with the nets either before the game, or at half time, as the Linesman had inspected them before play started. He blamed the poor weather conditions over recent weeks for the damage.

Kingstonian had led 1-0 at the interval, McCormack scoring on the half hour mark.

Bromley levelled early in the second period, Eric Nottage heading home Ray Hutching’s cross from close range; and went ahead in the 61st minute when Nottage slammed home from just inside the penalty area for his second goal of the game.

Later, the Kingstonian Secretary blamed the officials, saying that inspecting the net after the game they had found three strands of the netting broken.

Replying, Charles King – Bromley Secretary – said that Bromley were plagued by rabbits and they must have been on the pitch at sometime and weakened the nets by nibbling them, which caused them to break as they were hit by the ball.

Kingstonian promptly re-wrote the wartime rabbit song thus:-

Run rabbit, run rabbit, run, run, run;

Don’t wait for Bromley to spoil your fun;

We’ll get by;

Despite their alibi!

So run rabbit, run rabbit, run, run, run.

Bromley lost the replay at Richmond Road, 1-4.

Besides making the news in the local press, the London Evening papers at the time carried the story as well as a couple of National Daily papers.

Snippets from the past

In 1894 the South London League – which Bromley were members of – played two representative matches against the West London League. 

The first one was played at Hounslow on 13 January, and Bromley provided five of the players that played.  Those taking part were: Bayman in goal, Hutton, F.H.Gedney and Simister, who scored the only goal of the game in South London’s 1-0 victory. 

The second game was played at Bromley on 3 February, and this time Bromley supplied six players to the South London line up. 

They were: Bayman in goal, B.Gedney, Hutton, Simister, F.H.Gedney and E.J. Gedney, who scored one of the goals in South London’s 2-1 victory.  

Bromley did not do very well, loosing 1-2 to Millwall and 2-3 to Crystal Palace who were top of the League table, whilst Millwall were in second place going into the fixtures. 

When Bromley were drawn away to Willington in the FA Amateur Cup 2nd Round, which was played on 24 January 1953, the County Durham side immediately announced that the game would be ‘All Ticket’ with 12,000 tickets on offer. 

As it turned out from local newspaper reports at the time, the gate was ‘around the 3,000 mark’ as Bromley lost by the odd goal in three, with Johnny Jones on target for Bromley. 

Perhaps the initial numbers were rather optimistic! 

In the years between the two World Wars, 100 goals were scored in a season by Bromley on five occasions, with the 1925-26 season seeing the highest total of 116 in all fixtures. 

In 1936 eleven League games and one Cup tie were played in twenty-nine days between 4 April and 2 May; whilst in 1938 sixteen League fixtures and two Cup ties were played in thirty-six days between 2 April and 2 May. 

The build up of fixtures in 1937-38 season was mainly due to the success Bromley had had in Cup Competitions, in which they lifted the Amateur Cup for the second time when they overcame Erith & Belvedere in the Final played at Millwall’s old ground. 

Bromley were the only Club to win the Kent Amateur Cup in three consecutive seasons in the Competition’s history.  In 1953 they overcame Bowaters Lloyd by five goals to nil at Maidstone United’s old ground, and one year later beat Maidstone United by three goals to two at Hayes Lane before an 8,000+ crowd; whilst in 1955 Faversham Town were on the wrong end of a five-one score line, also here at Hayes Lane. 

Travel to away games up to the start of World War Two was mainly by train, an example of this was the trip to Maidenhead United in 1894, when Bromley left Bromley North Station to go to Cannon Street, where they had to get two Underground trains to cross London for Paddington, where they would get another train to Maidenhead. 

Another example was the away FA Cup tie at Kings Lynn in 1937.  The outward journey was timed to depart Liverpool Street at 10.05 am, to arrive in Kings Lynn at 1.09 pm just one hour and six minutes before the 2.15 pm kick off. 

The return journey was a little quicker, departing Norfolk at 5.59 pm, arriving Liverpool Street at 8.20 pm. 

A busy time – Mission Impossible

Bromley’s heroes did the almost impossible by winning their last four games, played in 5 days, at the end of the 1985-86 season to clinch promotion back to the Premier Division of the Isthmian League as Runners Up, after just two seasons in Division One.

Due to inclement weather earlier in the season, Bromley had fallen behind with their fixtures and appealed to the League Management to be allowed to play their final game after the season had officially ended – Lewes had played Bromley the previous season in similar circumstances – but the request was turned down.

Trevor Ford had taken over the hot seat in November from Dave Cooke, whose promotion at work took him away from the area. Cooke had left Bromley in a challenging position in the League and Ford continued that progress.

After beating Hornchurch away (3-1) on Tuesday 29 April 1986, it was back to Hayes Lane the following two nights against St Albans City and Tilbury. Both games were decided in Bromley’s favour by the same 1-0 score line, and both goals came from the penalty spot scored by Bobby Armitt.

Armitt was on target again less than 48 hours later, on Saturday 3 May, again from the 12-yard spot in the final game of the season.

Elijah Bee levelled for Leyton Wingate early in the second half, after Armitt had missed a second spot kick; but they clinched the victory, and promotion, seven minutes from time when Dick Tydeman tapped a free kick to John Roles on the right of the penalty area, and the fullback drove a fierce shot home beyond the goalkeeper’s reach.

How things have changed

In the past twenty seasons Bromley have scored 100 goals or more in a season on only four occasions. In 2006/07 it was 129 goals from 61 fixtures in the final season of Isthmian League football, before gaining promotion. This was followed by the first season of Conference South League football, with 101 goals from 56 competitive fixtures.

Promotion was again achieved in the 2014/15 season to the newly named Vanarama National League -previously Conference League – when exactly 100 goals came from 51 fixtures in the first season of the higher level; and the fourth and last time 100 goals or more were scored in a season was in the 2017-18 season, when the net was found on 104 occasions from 61 fixtures.

In contrast the twenty years between 1945 and 1965, following the resumption of play after the hostilities of World War Two ended, Bromley scored a century or goals or more in sixteen of the seasons in this period.

The four seasons that did not reach the century or more were in the 1955/56 season which saw 88 goals from 42 games, and 74 goals from 44 fixtures followed in the 1958/59 season. One short of the hundred came in 1961-62 from 57 fixtures, and two years later it was 93 goals from 53 games which was the fourth time.

The highest number of goals came in the 1949/50 season when Bromley included two eleven goal victories came in the 158 goals from 52 fixtures of that season. Thameside Amateurs (11-2) and Maidstone United (11-0) were on the wrong end of these score lines at Hayes Lane.

Whilst 31 goals were scored in four consecutive home fixtures between 22 January 1947 and 8 February 1947 against Lloyds, Folkestone, Kingstonian and Ramsgate, which were included in the total of 149 goals which were scored in 46 fixtures during the 1946/47 season.

Fifteen Years of Conference Football

By winning promotion from the Isthmian League via the play off system, Bromley were promoted to the Blue Square South (Conference) League in 2007 where they were to meet twenty-one fresh Clubs. Twelve of these Bromley had met before in previous Leagues, but there were nine Clubs which they had never met in League encounters before.

Over the next eight seasons they were to meet a further nine Clubs which they had never played in League fixtures, although some Clubs had been drawn with Bromley in various Cup competitions.

At the end of the 2014/15 season Bromley headed the now Vanarama Conference South table, and as a consequence, were promoted to the Vanarama National League, where they have remained to this day; and again, were to meet a number of ‘new’ Clubs, some of which were ex-Football League clubs.

Of these Clubs there were sixteen in the category of not previously meeting in League fixtures, and they included eleven Football League Clubs. Four of these new Clubs have since been relegated and not regained their higher League status; whilst Bromley still meet five of the original sixteen.

Since the end of the 2015/16 season, and up to the commencement of the current campaign, a further fourteen Clubs would have had the pleasure of travelling to Hayes Lane, and this season two additional Clubs – Oldham Athletic and Scunthorpe United – have already sampled this particular corner of Kent/Greater London, with Dorking Wanderers still to come.

All in all, during our membership of the National League, Bromley will have met a total of 63 different Clubs by the time the season concludes in April.

Play-off system

For the conclusion of the 2004-05 season, the Football Association introduced to Non-League Football, the play-off system which is prevalent today. Bromley became one of the first clubs to take advantage of this new system by gaining promotion from the Isthmian League Division One to the Premier Division.

This was the first of two promotions that Bromley have secured in this way, the other coming just two seasons later in 2007.

AFC Wimbledon had won the Division, whilst Bromley had finished in fourth place behind Walton & Hersham in second, Horsham in third, with Metropolitan Police in fifth position.

The new format would see the 2nd placed club play the 3rd placed club, and the 4th placed club play the 5th placed club in a one-off game, which would pit the winners of each match against each other to determine who would be promoted along with AFC Wimbledon. Home advantage in all games would go to the higher placed team in the final League table.

Bromley duly won their game against Metropolitan Police 4-3 on penalties, after a Colin Luckett penalty in normal time secured a 1-1 draw here at Hayes Lane on Tuesday 3 May 2005.

With Horsham winning the other match, it was off to Sussex on Saturday 7 May, where goals from Wade Falana, Allan McLeod and Colin Luckett secured a 3-1 victory and promotion back to the Premier Division of the Isthmian League.

The stay in the higher division lasted two seasons, before Bromley finished in Runners Up position ahead of Chelmsford City, Billericay Town and AFC Wimbledon in fifth place.

By this time the format had been altered slightly by the Football Association in so much as the 2nd placed team would now play the 5th placed; whilst the 3rd and 4th placed teams would play each other and, as before, the higher placed team in the final League placings would have home advantage.

Over 6,000 spectators packed into Hayes Lane for the two games on the 1st and 5th May 2007 when Nic McDonnell’s two goals gave Bromley firstly a 1-0 victory over AFC Wimbledon, and secondly contributed to a 1-1 after extra time draw against Billericay Town; following which Bromley won 4-2 on penalties to give them promotion to the Blue Square South Conference League which ended 55 years of Isthmian League membership.

Bromley were further promoted in 2015 to their present status of the National League, but this time it was as a result of being League Champions.

Promotion

In season 1960-61, Bromley were undefeated in the Isthmian League until 27 December 1960, when they failed to take all three points in the away League return fixture against Maidstone United when the County Town’s team won by three goals to nil.

Bromley had drawn their home fixture against the same opponents the day before, on Boxing Day, at Hayes Lane with Dave Norman scoring for Bromley in the 1-1 draw.

It was Bromley’s first loss in eighteen League fixtures, in which they had scored 54 goals and only conceded 23.

Bromley went on to win the League title with a 4-2 victory over St Albans City on the final day of the season, after Walthamstow Avenue had failed to win their final fixture away to third placed, Wimbledon, on the Friday evening in a replayed match at Plough Lane. The original match on the Thursday evening had been abandoned due to a waterlogged pitch following a downpour in which the East London side had been leading at the time.

Had Walthamstow won at Wimbledon, they would have won the League title by one point, a draw would not have been enough as they had an inferior goal average.

Grumbles

Over the years, there have been plenty of opinions regarding the football Supporters have watched both home and away.

One such opinion is whether the team you support played better in front of their own fans, or on the road at away fixtures.

A letter in the Bromley Telegraph published on 28 February 1903 is as follows:

‘Dear Sir

I beg to trespass on your space for just a little grumble, and ask the Committee of Bromley Football Club why they cannot give us as good a team at home as they do in away matches.

It is a fact that our teams are stronger in almost every case when we play away and play a better game so why can’t we have a little more satisfaction at home? You must agree that it would make all the difference to the ‘gate’ and also give a little encouragement to the supporters because it is not everyone who can go away with the team.

We know the great difficulty a Committee have with Amateurs, but with a little more tact in managing I think a thorough good team could be in the field.

Now Sir, let the Committee ‘buck up’ and try their utmost to figure as high as possible in the two leagues they are engaged in. I think you will find a large majority of supporters will agree with this little grumble.

Yours etc

An Old Supporter’

It seems very little has changed over the years as this season’s fixtures at Notts County, Chesterfield and Dorking Wanderers would testify, although in the main results and league positions would not support this theory generally Bromley being better at home than on their travels.
