Fancied Bromley provide the tough opposition this coming Saturday at Meadow Park. After leading the Division last season right up until the final weeks, they are obviously keen to go one better this campaign after their Play Off heartache.
Led by Manager Mark Goldberg, the Kent outfit have strengthened beyond question coming into this season. They have an awesome forward line to choose from having recruited top names to issue a challenge to the rest of the division.
Damien Scannell and Jamie Slabber have both signed from Sutton Untied. The pair know each other intimately having both featured for Eastleigh in previous seasons as well. Moses Ademola, who was prolific for Woking hitting the back of the net twenty five times during his two year spell at Kingfield Stadium signed from last seasons promoted Dover Athletic. It does not end there with Adam Birchall, the former Barnet and Dover Athletic striker putting pen to paper in the close season , joining The Lilywhites from Gillingham.
Another ex Gill Harry Grant has been drafted in to the midfield, whilst Reece Prestedge will play alongside him after leaving Bishops Stortford at the end of last season.
Bromley have hit the net seven times already this season with the goals coming from all over the park. Philip Joseph-Dubois who scored in our 2-1 defeat at the Hayes Stadium last campaign has a brace, with Ademola (2), Ali Fuseini (2) and Rob Swaine the other contributors.
Last season we played out a 1-1 draw at Meadow Park, when Raheem Sterling- Parker rescued a point with a 93rd minute equaliser.
Both sides have six points from three outings. After easily dispatching play off favourites Havant And Waterlooville 1-3 on the opening day, Bromley destroyed fellow big spenders Whitehawk 4-1, before slipping to a surprise 0-3 defeat at the hands of Basingstoke Town last Saturday.
It promises to be a goal fuelled affair, between two sides that have accumulated sixteen goals between them in their opening three matches.
The winners of this tie could conceivably sit top of the Vanarama Conference South come 4.45pm , so your support is needed and we look forward to seeing you all at Meadow Park this coming Saturday!
Vanarama Conference South.
