Bromley’s new look side impressed for the second week in a row, having recorded a 2-0 victory over Dulwich Hamlet in a pre-season friendly.

The Ravens had narrowly been edged out 1-0 by a strong Dagenham and Redbridge side at Hayes Lane the week before, with many a positive sign being shown in an encouraging first display.

The match started with Bromley looking the more likely of the two sides, and it took just 15 minutes for them to make their mark. Moses Ademola, a summer signing from Conference South playoff winners Dover Athletic, fed fellow new boy Damian Scannell, who expertly timed his pass into the area, allowing the sprinting Sam Long to latch onto the ball and slot home, for a goal created by a trio of new players.

It was 2-0 soon after, as yet another new signing, Harry Grant, produced an exquisite pinpoint cross into the penalty area, which was met by the head of Danny Waldren on the edge of the six yard area, giving Hamlet goalkeeper Inigo Echeapare no chance.

The visitors were good value for their lead, and almost straight away, looked to make it three.

The second half was a more cagey affair, with few chances for either of the two sides. The lively Ademola had a penalty appeal turned down, while substitute Louis Dennis shot wide. Grant also hit the side netting from a tight angle in the dying moments.

Overall, the Bromley faithful will be pleased with what was only their second match of pre-season, but a faultless display nonetheless. Their next pre-season friendly sees them take on League 1 Gillingham at Hayes Lane on Tuesday (7:30pm kick off), before Millwall make the visit on Saturday 19th (3pm kick off).
