The Bromley FC Academy hosted neighbours Crystal Palace at Hayes Lane on Saturday, with the young Ravens falling to a narrow 1-0 defeat.

It was a tough contest for both sides on the day in blistering conditions on the Stadium pitch. In the end, the 2017-18 Premier League Under 18 Champions Crystal Palace, secured the pre-season victory with a 1-0 win but the academy had many positives to take out of the fixture.

The result itself was of less importance on the afternoon, as it often is in pre-season, with The Ravens Academy handing out 4 debuts from players involved in the U16’s. One of the more notable performances came from Cameron Edwards, with the young goalkeeper showing huge potential and effort to keep the score at 0-1 with three excellent saves.

The other three debutants were Jamie Watson, Harry Thomas and Ollie Tanner who all stepped up to experience a taste of things to come when they begin with the academies pre-season schedule in the first week of August.

Upcoming fixtures against Millwall, Ipswich and Norwich along with many more should help prepare the young Ravens for an exciting and promising 2018-19 campaign.
