From the Dugout – Luke Garrard  

“Bromley picked up a great win in midweek and gave themselves an outside chance of making the play-offs.

“I can imagine that Neil will be rallying his troops to make a last-minute surge for them.

“They have got themselves to Wembley for the FA Trophy final, so in fairness, they have had a superb season and he has done a fantastic job.

“That means that every time you are playing a game as a player, you are playing for your shirt at Wembley.

“I don’t care who you are, as a boy you are dreaming about playing under the arches and I can imagine that they are all relishing playing their cup final in the middle of May.

“We totally envisage a tough test against them, especially on a pitch that they know ever so well.

“We came up with them and I feel that we have both developed off-the-park and on-the-park.”
