made their way through to the next round of the FA Trophy with a
professional display away at Ryman Division One strugglers Ashford Town,

game started slowly, with both sides having spells of possession, Joe
Vines came close when heading a Sam Wood corner just wide and at the other
end Andy Walker saved well from Boorman’s long drive.
Vines went close again and Wood had a great run down the left before cutting in and shooting only for his effort to be deflected wide by the impressive Marc Cumberbatch.
Ashford had a spell pressing Bromley back, but The Ravens defence kept their recent good record up and Andy Walker was as reliable as ever.
Des Boateng and Wood both had good runs from midfield, but will both be disappointed with their final ball and former Ashford striker Adrian Stone nearly scored against his old side when being set up one on one with Glover, but his shot went just wide of the post.
This was a competent performance from a Bromley side now unbeaten in 10 games and go into next Saturday's FA Cup fourth qualifying round showdown against Aldershot Town at Hayes Lane high on confidence.
