Bromley's Marlon Patterson received two yellow cards as The Ravens slipped to defeat.


After reaching the London Senior Cup final on penalties last week, Bromley fell to a thumping 4-0 loss at home to Hayes and Yeading United on Saturday.

The away side started the game on the front foot, forcing a corner after just 10 seconds, which prompted a save from goalkeeper Joe Welch.

After 10 minutes, United captain Sam Cox’s powerful long range effort flew past Welch for the opening goal, his fingertips not enough to keep the ball out.

Just one minute later, Daniel Wishart found himself through on goal. The pacy winger’s shot squirmed under Joe Welch and trickled into the net, despite the efforts of Moses Swaibu.

The visitors were not finished there. Right from kick off, they launched another attack which resulted in a foul in the area by Marlon Patterson, and the referee pointing to the spot.

Up stepped Kudus Oyenuga, and the front-man made no mistake, delaying his run before slotting the ball home. Bromley had conceded three goals in two first half minutes.

Shortly before half-time, Patterson’s mis-timed tackle and scuffle with Oyenuga saw him receive his marching orders.

In a second-half dominated by physical battles and a swamp-like surface, Sanchez Ming was sent off for yet another bad tackle. However, Hayes and Yeading substitute Mark Bentley became the third player to be sent off in a fiery-tempered fixture when he threw a punch at Ming.

Sam Corcoran sealed the win for United with an audacious lob which left Welch stranded.

The result sees Hayes and Yeading leapfrog Bromley into 14th place. The Ravens next face Maidenhead United away on Saturday.
