Wembley victory

Wembley victory

An exciting afternoon at Wembley Stadium as Bromley FC won promotion to the English Football League by defeating Solihull Moors in the National League Play Off Final.

I joined the 15,000 Bromley supporters in the Blue section of the ground, which traditionally would have been the tunnel end C of the old ‘Wembley.’ This impressive turnout considerably outnumbered the Solihull contingent, although the Moors Club is fairly new having only been established around fifteen years ago.

The match was a close and hard fought affair and whilst Bromley twice took the lead, Solihull pegged them back with equalisers. So extra time was required, however no further goals were scored – although Bromley’s excellent Kirk was a whisker away with efforts that hit bar and post – and the dreaded penalty shoot out ensued.

Smith in the Bromley goal proved the match winner with two superb saves and our local heroes led the joyful celebrations.
