Bromley Football Club are delighted to announce the signing of James Alabi.

The former Leyton Orient man has plenty of National League experience with the Os, as well as Forest Green Rovers, Grimsby Town, Tranmere Rovers, Chester, Eastleigh and Dover Athletic.

The 25 year old powerhouse striker started his career in the youth ranks of Stoke City, before joining Celtic’s academy. Following a season in Scotland, he returned to Stoke and signed his first professional contract with the Potters in 2013. His time there would see him embark on loan spells at Scunthorpe United, Mansfield Town, Forest Green Rovers and Accrington Stanley.

In 2015, Alabi would depart the Club where he began his footballing journey, and signed for Ipswich Town. He remained with the Suffolk outfit for a season and had a short stint on loan at Grimsby Town, before departing for then National League side Chester.

This is where he would spend a very successful one and a half seasons, making 62 appearances and contributing with 24 goals in all competitions, attracting the attention of Tranmere Rovers for whom he signed in July 2017. He remained at Prenton Park for the 2017-18 season and spent time with Dover Athletic on loan, before signing for Leyton Orient in 2018.

Alabi was part of the Leyton Orient side who won the 2018-19 National League title under Justin Edinburgh, earning himself a further season with the East London side, this time in League Two. Towards the premature end of the 2019-20 season, he also enjoyed a loan spell with Eastleigh.
