Bromley Football Club are pleased to announce that Ben Allen and Jude Arthurs have both signed for the Club as First Year Professionals.
The 19 year olds will train alongside the first team, with the ability to play for the U23 Professional Development side too.
Allen is a former Gillingham midfielder, who was snapped up by the League One side following an impressive performance and goal against them for Phoenix Sports in the Kent Senior Cup.
Arthurs, another ex-Gills man, will be known to some supporters, and has featured in Bromley’s U23 side, as well as enjoying a spell with Ramsgate last season.
Manager Neil Smith was pleased to secure the services of the two youngsters;
“Jude Arthurs is a very promising young player with potential. He did so well in our Professional Development Squad last year and we invited him to pre-season. He has excelled so far and really developed so we’ve made the decision to sign him as a First Year Pro, meaning he will be a part of my squad.”
He continued; “Ben Allen came in to pre-season on recommendation and he was at Gillingham for a time alongside Jude. He came in and has impressed with the right attitude and a desire. Again, it just shows that here at this Club that we do want to bring the youth through. If you want to work hard there is a space for you in this team. Hopefully with the signings over the past week we are getting the right blend of experience and younger players to bring success to this Club.”
