On Bromley

The club was founded back in 1892 and have spent their years floating around the non-league pyramid. They were promoted to the National League in 2015 after being crowned champions and have been there ever since.

In 2015 Bromley also reached the final of the FA Trophy, where they lost 5–4 on penalties to Brackley Town. In 1938 the club moved to the current Hayes Lane ground. The record attendance of 10,798 was set during a unique game against a Nigeria XI in September 1948.

This season Bromley sit 7th, two points within the play-offs with two games to go. Eastleigh are just behind having played the same number of games so Bromley can’t afford a slip-up and will be looking to secure their play-off place and try to gain promotion to the Football League.
