Bromley Football Club’s academy scholars have used the close season to enjoy some of trips off site.
Last week, academy coaches Danny Mills and Glyn Shimell took a squad of players up to Liverpool to enjoy the experience of an away trip. The players travelled up on Tuesday afternoon, had an overnight stay in Widnes, and then played a game against Liverpool Football University on Wednesday morning. The young Ravens took an early lead against a team made up of second year students, and for some time, held their own. Liverpool came back with 3 goals before the Ravens replied. In an entertaining game, the final result was 6-4. Post match, the players enjoyed taking in the historic football city and visited both Anfield and Goodison Park before heading into the city centre and docks for an evening meal.
On Wednesday, a trip a bit closer to home saw the academy graduates enjoy a day out at Camber sands. The players enjoyed a light training session on the dunes and then had a BBQ lunch cooked by the coaches, before entertaining themselves with more beach games and dips into the sea.
All in all, it was an excellent couple of trips, with two great sets of players representing the Bromley badge with pride.
