Introducing - Bromley

23 June 2015

Andy Phillips looks at the newly promoted Conference South side.

Bromley will head into the National League for the first time in their history after winning the Conference South Title last season.

The club clinched the title with a 3-0 final day victory over Weston Super Mare, meaning that they finished two points clear of their nearest rivals, Boreham Wood.

Interestingly, the Lilywhites managed by former Crystal Palace chairman Mark Goldberg, who is currently in his third spell in charge of the club. Formerly an IT businessman, Goldberg first got involved in football as chairman of Palace in 1998 and spent a year there for before leaving the club. He joined Bromley in 2006, leading them to promotion to the Conference South and bar two short spells away from the club, has been the manager for the majority of the time since.

The club play their games at the 6,000 capacity Hayes Lane and have had it tough over the years, finding themselves in the eighth tier of English football at one point. Up until their promotion last season, they had spent the last seven seasons solidifying themselves in the Conference South.

Town will come up against Bromley for the first time in their history this season and with the signings of former Luton striker Alex Wall as well as Newport pair Lee Minshull and Max Porter, the London side definitely aren't going to be satisfied with just making up the numbers this campaign.
