Academy Update 29/02/12
29 February 2012
Bromley Blues kept up their recent unbeaten run dating back to November with a 3-0 victory over Basingstoke Town, but they were made to work very hard for three well-earned points against opponents who performed beyond their current position at the bottom of the league in the recent FCYA fixture. The game started with Basingstoke on top however an early goal from Arron Rhule put Bromley in front for a 1-0 advantage at half time but the one goal looked a rather slender one. Basingstoke continued to work tirelessly to get back on terms but never really threatened the Bromley goal and as the game opened out in the second half Bromley looked more likely to score when Arron Rhule got to the by line beating several defenders and cutting the ball back for Jordon Caterhall to slot home. The Blues were continuing to press and after great work from Gary Webb down the left saw Stefan Wright skilfully move the ball to get his shot off and score into the roof of the net to close the game out 3-0. Dan Higgs performed well switching to centre half and led the defensive line with Arron Rhule being a constant threat going forwards. The fixture saw a rotation of players where everyone made a positive impression and kept up Bromley’s run towards the title where Bromley Blues now move into 5th place with games in hand and only three points behind the leaders .
Bromley Blues have a busy week ahead with a game against local rivals AFC Wimbledon on Monday and the Quarter Finals of the FCYA League Cup on Wednesday away against Borehamwood.
Bromley Whites were beaten by top of the table Charlton Athletic Trust where their opponents proved too strong in a 2-0 defeat with a goal in each half. The Whites were playing under pressure for much of the game but gradually fought their way back where the result could have been different if their top scorer Zikhalo Lungu could have taken several chances that fell his way. It was another positive display from the younger squad with Byron Thompson holding the midfield together and centre half Craige Dwyer having a strong game at centre back. All the players continue to perform well without really picking up the points where they remain mid table in their division.
