Bromley’s Academy started their season on Wednesday with just a single home fixture being played at Hayes Lane. The 2nd Years played host to Whyteleafe, and the young Ravens got their season off to a superb start as they won 5-0 on the Stadium pitch.
Other impressive away performances came in from Academy sides throughout the afternoon with a 6-0 win coming against Charlton Athletic Trust and a 4-0 win against The Halley Academy!
Tough defeats came at the hands of Maplesden Noakes, with Bromley going down 7-3 to the Maidstone based school. And one of our sides faced a trip to Gravesend Grammar School and after going 3-0 down in the game, the Ravens put on a spirited comeback to score twice late on. Unfortunately that didn’t prove enough on the afternoon, as they went on to lose the match 3-2.
On the whole it was a successful week of matches for the Academy, with a number of the 1st Year sides still getting to know each other. We will provide you further updates throughout the season, with our Academy growing from strength to strength!
As ever, a huge thank you to our fantastic sponsors of the Academy; Go Travel, Life Lab, Chamber Furniture and Monster Energy Hydrate.
