A clinical second-half performance from Bromley led to a 3-0 win over Staines Town on Saturday.
The match saw ex-Bromley players Sanchez Ming and Louie Theophanous returning to Hayes Lane for the first time, though a dull first-half saw few chances for either side.
Bradley Goldberg’s close range effort was well saved by Kyle Merson in the Staines goal, and the visitors’ best chance came after Stephane Ngamvolou’s effort was turned around the post by Lewis Carey.
However, the real entertaining play had been saved for the second-half it seemed. Ashley Nicholls put Bromley ahead on 57 minutes, when he volleyed in after Jay May hit the crossbar.
The lead was doubled just nine minutes later, when Bradley Goldberg beat the offside trap to slot the ball past Merson. Staines’ only real chance of the second-half came when Theophanous shot narrowly wide on 86 minutes.
The Ravens, wearing their new kit for the first time, capped their victory with a third goal late on. Joe Anderson’s blocked shot fell to Joseph-Dubois, who beat the defender before cooly guiding the ball home in trademark fashion.
Bromley travel to Concord Rangers on Tuesday, while their next home game will be on Saturday against Basingstoke.
