Bromley

Altrincham Club Crest image

Having been formed in 1892, Bromley Football Club frequently changed leagues and as South London League Champions in 1893-1894, the Kent club was invited to become a founder member of The Southern League’s Second Division. Then, having finished at the foot of the new division in 1894, they joined The London League but also had spells in the West Kent, Suburban and Kent competitions before joining The Spartan League in 1904.

The League title was won in 1907-1908 and this signalled a move up to the Isthmian League, where after a season of settling in, they won two League Championships in succession. Another change took place after the first world war when Bromley joined the Athenian League where they remained until 1952, winning three titles, The F.A.Amateur Cup twice and The London Senior Cup three times.

Bromley were respected as one of the strongest amateur clubs in the country and in 1952 they were invited back to the Isthmian League where they promptly won the title in 1953-1954 and again in 1960-1961. Since those successful seasons Bromley stayed in the Isthmian League but until the last three seasons ‘The Lillywhites’ were rarely in the headlines.

Mark Goldberg the ex-Crystal Palace supremo took an interest in the club, and as manager, helped Bromley to promotion into the new Conference South in 2006 where they are enjoying their football.
