Bromley Football Club are pleased to announce that Corey Whitely has joined on loan for the remainder of the season.
Whitely makes the switch from Newport County for whom he signed for back in the summer from Ebbsfleet United. The 28 year-old began his career at Boreham Wood before moves to Waltham Forest and Cheshunt.
Whitely’s career took off when he joined Enfield town, where he would go on to make 120 appearances scoring 46 goals. His performances at Enfield drew interest from Dagenham & Redbridge who came calling in 2016. Whitely would spend two years with the Daggers scoring 23 goals in 66 appearances.
Whitely then signed for Ebbsfleet United before his move into the Football League with Newport County in 2019. He made 19 appearances for the Welsh outfit this season, scoring once.
Neil Smith commented on the signing saying; “As soon as we thought we could get someone like Corey in, we’ve done everything we can to do just that. It’s a fantastic bit of business for us to be bringing in a player with such experience in this league.”
Whitely himself was delighted to join; “I’m delighted to be here! I’m looking forward to my new adventure with this Club. It’s also good to be back in London, where it all began for me. I must know about 8 or 9 of the players already, playing with a majority of them and against some too. They’re a great bunch! and I’ve already had a few phone calls from them welcoming me and they’re delighted for me to join as well.”
Whitely will take the number 19 shirt, vacated by the recent departure of Reeco Hackett-Fairchild.
