Bromley impress in pre season
Blue Square bet South side Bromley FC cruised to a first pre season victory of the new calendar year with an emphatic 5-1 win at Kent Premier Division outfit Beckenham Town.
On a magnificent Eden Park surface, voted the best in the Kent Division for the last two seasons, the Lilywhites gained control inside 10 minutes, with forward Gareth Williams slotting past Nicky Blue.
From that moment on the visitors began to show their superiority, against a team ranked two steps below them on the football pyramid, Aaron Rhule doubled the lead heading in Tony Finn’s cross before half time.
Mark Goldberg’s side continued the onslaught after the break, the returning Warren McBean scored twice and Pierre Joseph Dubois completed the route to end a very productive evening for the Kent-based club.
Saturday’s impressive display against football league counterparts Crawley Town had given many Bromley supporters ample opportunity to feel positive going into the new season, the manner in which the Lilywhites swept aside Kent neighbours Beckenham, will only add to the optimism.
