Bromley Football Club are pleased to announce the signing of young winger Reece Meekums.

The 19 year old, who has been on trial with the Ravens this pre-season, has impressed with his pace and trickery having featured in all of the Club’s pre-season fixtures so far.

Reece is comfortable on either wing, and can also play as a forward, offering versatility across Neil Smith’s front line. He started out at Brighton & Hove Albion, where he featured in the Under 18s in the 2016/17 season, before moving onto the Under 23s for the 2017/18 campaign, where he was part of the Premier League Two Division 2 winning side. Meekums also enjoyed a loan spell at Worthing, where his goals and performances saw many Clubs take interest.

Manager Neil Smith was delighted to secure Reece’s services amidst other interest; “Reece came in to train with us towards the end of last season and then again in pre-season. He’s been fantastic so far and is scoring very highly in our fitness tests. He’s pacy and has a few tricks up his sleeve as well, so I’m sure he’ll be a great addition to the squad.”

Reece was also pleased to secure a contract with the Ravens, having enjoyed pre-season so far; “It feels good to get it over the line. I’ve been training with the Club for a few weeks now and all of the players and staff have been brilliant and very welcoming. It’s time to kick on now!”

Reece joins the following players in committing to the Ravens for next season:

  • David Gregory
  • Jack Holland
