A winless run of six games was ended by Bromley FC away at Billericay Town on Saturday as they overcame the Essex side in a 3-2 victory.

The home side started well against The Ravens, with Jay May finding his early ball through to Osborn blocked by quick thinking Joe Welch to deny an early opener.

Both sides traded blows in the opening 15 minutes until Billericay were fortunate to find Semakula with the ball at his feet on the edge of the Bromley box.

His half-volley was parried by Welch, but he could do little about the incoming Osborn who slotted home to make it 1-0 to the home side.

With just over 30 minutes gone Bromley were back in the game as Ali Fuseni hit a curling effort from 18 yards that nestled comfortably in the bottom corner of the net.

Level at the break, there was plenty of action to come in the final 45 minutes and it was Bromley who took the lead through Pierre Joseph-Dubois.

In the final 10 minutes Billericay finally battered down the doors of Bromley’s defence, with Poole scoring what was sure to be the goal to earn his side a point.

However, with the game in added time Mike Jones was brought down for a last-gasp penalty with Danny Waldren cooly fired home for three points.

The win sees Bromley into 14th place, just three points off the top half of the table. They next take on Dorchester Town at Hayes Lane on Saturday afternoon.
