What a great day out it was at Grays. It was like the good old days standing behind the goal, great atmosphere, I haven’t enjoyed a match so much for a very long time. The thing which stood out for me was how much it meant to the Bromley players, unlike our over paid prima dona’s.

What a great draw, Gillingham away, I’ll be there.

Luke, I will try and get a couple of spare tickets, Bromley may well do a scheme where tickets are first on sale to those that went yesterday/Hayes away/Lowestoft away, in which case I should be alright for tickets. Give you a shout when I find out more.

As for the match, best check out the ten minute highlights on the Bromley FC website - link below.

Those after the game scenes in the dressing room and clubhouse in the video are very telling.

As I read pages upon pages of doom and gloom about Crystal Palace and football in general, watching that clip gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling that there still is hope for football, and some of those old emotions can be rekindled. Albeit somewhat fleeting I suspect.

Having said that, it is the rarity of the moment that makes it so special.

Bromley are bullish for Gills tie

Former Crystal Palace chairman Goldberg is now boss at Bromley
Bromley manager Mark Goldberg is relishing their FA Cup first round tie at Gillingham, after beating Conference side Grays 2-1 on Saturday.
Former Crystal Palace chairman Goldberg has led Bromley to the top of the Ryman Premier Division this season.

"We'll prepare well for Gillingham - we'll have a go at them and we'll fancy that we can maybe cause a little disturbance," he told BBC Radio Kent.

"We've got to fancy ourselves against any team on the day."

Yesterdays Match report
Grays Athletic 1 Bromley2 – FA Cup 4th Qualifying Round - 28/10/06
Bromley made it through to the First Round of the FA Cup for the first time in ten years with a fantastic battling display at Conference side Grays on Saturday and were rewarded with a draw away to local Football League side Gillingham.

The Essex based full time professional side put Bromley under pressure from the kick off moving the ball round quickly and pushing The Ravens back. Glen Poole and Dennis Oli both fired wide, but with their first attack Bromley took the lead on 11mins when Mark Corneille’s hard work set up Lloyd Blackman who turned sharply and smashed the ball home for 1-0.

Grays continued to have all the possession and pressure Michael Kightly hit the post with a free kick and Poole fired over while on a rare break Sam Wood had a shot cleared off the line. Lloyd Blackman had a shot saved before a sustained spell of pressure from the home team finally saw them equalise when a low cross from the right was turned in by Lee Boylan sliding in from close range.

Donal O’Sullivan had to go off injured and Bromley re-shaped to a 4-4-2 formation bringing on Simon Osborn, which helped The Ravens combat the balls over the top of the wingbacks Grays had looked for. On 38mins Bromley sent the away fans crazy when Blackman latched on to a ball from the left and beat Ashley Bayes from 12yards to make it 2-1. Just before the break Kirk Watts fired just wide nearly finishing off a great move.

Grays came out early for the second half after obviously getting a talking to in the dressing room, but they never got going in the same manner as the first half. After some late challenges on Blackman and Osborn Bromley settled, Francis Duku headed wide from a corner, Nic McDonnell had a shot turned over and Blackman had a shot saved.

Grays then rallied Jamie Slabber shot wide twice and they were handed more of an advantage when Mark Corneille was injured and had to stand up front as all three subs had been made. Late on Bromley were awarded a free kick when Bayes handled a back pass, but Osborn’s fierce drive was saved. Grays pressed desperately for an equaliser in injury time pushing the Keeper up as well, but Bromley cleared their lines and Watts ran the ball forward and wide to secure the win.

Quote for the game, ‘How long Col?’

Bromley: Walker, Corneille, Wood, Duku, Henriques, O’Sullivan, Adeniyi, Moore, Watts, Blackman, McDonnell.
Subs: Osborn, Williams, Bowry, Fieldwick, Shimmell.

Interesting Goldberg and Co started with the big names of Osborn, Williams and Bowry on the bench.

Probably says something about team spirit and starting with the players that started the Cup campaign.

TBH he has done this a lot this season with Osbourn and Bobby Bowry and used them well as impact substitutions when we've needed that extra bit of experience on the pitch, often when we are a goal or two up, or being put under a fair bit of pressure. I'm not convinced that Osbourn can play two 90's in a week so it's definately the best ploy. As for Bobby having a natural leader on the field at this level is crucial.

As for the Cup draw, if it's a televised match I believe we are guarenteed over £75,000 plus gate receipts, so i'm hoping for a TV Saturday lunchtime/evening or Sunday match - preferably not a Friday night, though if it's on TV happy days. With the possibly giantkilling, the local Kent derby and of course the very big draw of the Goldberg story I reckon it's likely we might be on the BEEB/Sky.

I've just watch the highlights and I know they might have been selective highlights in Bromley's favour by the fella who does the recording but it certainly looks like It was no fluke or backs to the wall job...............thoroughly deserved and they could have scored more!!!

Love the bit In the bar after when they showed the players watching the draw!!!

Grays were all over us for a large part of the first half, but Bromley were certainly the better team in the second half. The Grays players frustration was clear to all and best summed up by their keeper, who had taken a lot of good natured banter from the brom fans, who smashed the back of his goal net in some fit of rage after some slack Grays defending!

After the match we weren't allowed to go back into the clkubhouse so around 20 of us watched the draw in Grays town centre in a boozer around rhe corner from the station. It was something I will never forget - what a time to stuff the draw up! Thankfully our moment wasn't ruined and when Gillingham was drawn as a home team out everyone said "we will take that" when Bromley was drawn I'm not quite sure what the (non football watching) pub made of the reaction - absolute quality!

I saw on the video that after the game a lot of the Bromley fans were getting their hands shaken by one of the Grays stewards. It was almost like he was going out of his way to do it.

Was there a story behind that?

At Grays the stewards face the fans for the whole match - rather than the relaxed Ryman Premier approach. So they are able to hear all the banter as they are so close to the crowd. The Bromley fans were in good mood and having a really good day out and the banter was flying around.

There were a few incidents the steward mentionned found amusing and couldn't help laughing at. At all these non league grounds you are really close to the oppo goal keeper and you know he can hear everything, in the second half he tipped the ball over the goal and a goal kick was given. He got a fair bit of stick along the lines of "keeper stop smiling you know thats a corner!" nothing more and he turned around and smiled. It turns out this lad was called Ashley, someone misheard it as Ashlene and as a result everytime he touched the ball he had a couple of hundred Bromley fans crying "Ashlene, Ashlene, Ashlene" at him. The Steward was cracking up. (You had to be there - doesn't really sound that amusing I admit!)

The steward (possibly number 17) just realised that the big Bromley crowd were going to cause him no trouble at all and going to have a good laugh regardless of the result. Good to see.

Bromley to visit Priestfield in FA Cup First Round

By Keith Pestell
Date: 28/10/2006

Kent neighbours Bromley will visit Priestfield in the First Round of the FA Cup. The tie, which is scheduled to take place on Saturday 11th November 2006, will see former Gills Simon Osborn and Mark Corneille return to Priestfield.

Bromley are expected to sell every ticket available to them as their fans plan for the short trip down the A2 knowing Ronnie Jepson will have to have the Gills fully prepared for what could be an FA Cup banana skin.

Sitting undefeated top of the Ryman Isthmian Football League with 27 points from 11 games Bromley reached the First Round proper of the FA Cup defeating AFC Totton 4-0, Lowestoft Town 1-0, Hayes 3-1 and Grays Athletic 2-1.

The visitors will also hold something of an advantage having defeated the Gills 1-0 pre-season thanks to a 61st minute strike by Tony Boot in front of 543 fans.

The winner of the tie will receive £16,000 in prize money with the Second Round draw scheduled to take place at 3.00pm on Sunday 12th November.
