Bromley Football Club are pleased to announce the signing of attacking midfielder Kyle De Silva.
The 24 year old joins from FC Eindhoven, who play in the Dutch second tier, where he has spent the past two years, making 49 appearances and scoring four goals during that time.
De Silva started his footballing journey at the Crystal Palace academy and youth setup, spending a total of ten years with the Eagles. During his time with Palace, as well as being a regular in the Under-23 side, he made seven first team appearances, the first of which came in January 2012, being named in the starting lineup to face Derby County in the FA Cup. Along with a short loan spell at Barnet, De Silva represented Notts County prior to his move to the Netherlands.
Smith was pleased to capture a player he had been tracking for a while; “I’ve been watching Kyle since he was at Palace and then at Notts County. We tried to sign him last year, but he had to see out his contract in Holland. He’s done that now and we’re pleased to have him on board, and I’m sure he’ll excite the supporters with his style of play.”
