Bobby-Joe Taylor

DOB: 04/02/95 / Position: Winger/Forward

23 year old forward Bobby-Joe Taylor became Bromley’s first signing of the Summer of 2018.

Taylor, who is comfortable on either wing or in a central position, has represented England C twice, and signed a one year contract with the Ravens, taking him through the whole of the 2018/19 season.

After starting his career in the Chelsea and Gillingham youth setups, Taylor moved onto Cambridge United, where he made a handful of appearances in League Two back in the 2014-15 season. During his time with the U’s, he enjoyed loan spells at Southern League outfits St Neots Town and Arlesey Town, before being sent out to Bishop’s Stortford, who were then in the Conference South.

Following his departure from Cambridge, he joined Maidstone United, helping the Ravens’ Kent rivals to promotion to the National League, thanks to a playoff final victory over Ebbsfleet United. In his first National League season, Taylor netted nine goals in all competitions, ensuring his side a mid-table finish, comfortably staving off relegation. Following this, he attracted the attention of various National League clubs, before eventually signing for Gary Waddock’s Aldershot Town in the Summer of 2017, and was part of the side who reached the National League Promotion Eliminator, where the Shots were denied a semi-final place by Ebbsfleet United.

Bromley manager Neil Smith was understandably delighted to get his man; “I’m delighted to be signing Bobby-Joe. He’s a player who excites me every time I see him play. He is quick and direct, and I believe he’ll cause teams problems. He has played at England C level too (below), and after expressing an interest in him last season, I’m pleased to finally get him on board. He’s hungry to play for us and I look forward to seeing him in a Bromley shirt.”
