A fortnightly podcast following the trials and tribulations of Bromley FC has become a surprise global hit.

Designed for die hard fans, the show is presented by David Cooke and Matt Hall, and has now been downloaded in Japan, China, Australia, New Zealand and America - as well as in every English county.

Started back in October last year, the ‘pod’ covers a breadth of Bromley related topics, from the ladies’ team to reports from recent first team ties and emails from fans.

Host Matt said: “The aim of the podcast is simply to bring people up to date in terms of the goings on at the club. This is especially important for people who aren’t able to attend many games - we can paint a picture of what they’ve missed and sometimes what to expect.

“Myself and Dave thoroughly enjoy recording, and we’re so happy to hear people enjoy listening to us – it’s rewarding when we receive positive comments.”

As well as being heard across the globe, Matt and David’s efforts have also found their way into the “What’s Hot”, and “New and Noteworthy”, sections on iTunes.

Co-host David added: “It’s great to have so many listeners, not just in Bromley, but all over the world. Matt and I could never have expected this ‘little’ podcast to take off and kick on so well! We’re delighted the club is getting increased exposure all over the world.”

To listen, visit or search “Bromley FC podcast” on iTunes. You can also contact the show by emailing
