Neil Smith

Summary

A mid table finish last season would have disappointed manager Neil Smith, which explains why he has strengthened all areas of the pitch for the upcoming season. These additions are very good for Bromley, including prolific goal scorer Michael Cheek who would have been welcomed by many of the top clubs in the division. So this season Smith and his team would like to go one more and challenge for play-offs.

Chris Bush

The back line may have a shake up this season with full back Joe Kizzi and centre back Chris Bush coming in and likely to start. In midfield Billy Bingham comes in with a lot of football league experience at a young age which may excite Bromley fans alongside the experienced hardnosed midfielder Adrian Clifton from Maidenhead, who always looks a threat when watching but never seemed to get a move from Maidenhead and now he’s finally got his chance to prove himself with a team who will be challenging higher.

Billy Bingham

Up top Korrey Henry has signed from Braintree who has a big presence up top but has a lack of goals, however the lack of goals will be covered by the signing of Michael Cheek from Ebbsfleet who season after season proves he is a lethal striker at this level scoring 63 goals overall in the league in 157 appearances.

A hairy Michael Cheek

Predicted Finish

With a mixture of results in pre-season and the signings they’ve made I think Bromley will be higher than last season and will push for that play-off spot.
