This weekend we welcome to Hayes Lane all connected with our visitors, Chesterfield FC, who make the journey south for the first of this season’s Vanarama National League fixtures.
This will be the first fixture of the New Year after a break from football of just over three weeks due to Club staff serving a ten day isolation period following positive Covid-19 test results within the squad.
This is the third occasion that our guests will have visited Hayes Lane since their relegation from the Football League two seasons ago. On their first visit they drew 3-3 on the 12 March 2019, and last season Bromley gained maximum points with a 2-1 victory in an early season fixture on 7 September 2019.
Chesterfield have struggled somewhat since they came into the league and, after a poor start to the current delayed campaign, they have taken thirteen points from their last five League fixtures since the appointment of a new manager at the end of November, and remain unbeaten under his reign.
These points have seen then rise in the League table to their current position of 16th with a total of 19 points from their 14 games completed so far.
The return fixture is scheduled for Saturday 17 April 2021.
