Bromley sign Ebbsfleet United striker Michael Cheek: It’s great to be here. It’s an ambitious club and I can’t wait to get going
BROMLEY manager Neil Smith has made striker Michael Cheek his second summer signing.
The 27-year-old striker was one of seven players on Ebbsfleet United’s retained list this summer but has opted to move away from Stonebridge Road to sign for the Ravens.
Cheek is a seasoned performer at National League level, having made his name at Heybridge Swifts, before moving on to Chelmsford City. After a successful one and a half season spell with the Clarets, which saw him score 35 goals in 66 appearances, he made the move to Braintree Town. Cheek remained with the Iron for two seasons, scoring 42 goals in 98 games.
His prolific spell earned him a move to fellow Essex outfit Dagenham & Redbridge, where he spent a single season, in which he scored twice in a 5-1 win over Bromley.
In the Summer of 2018, Cheek signed for Ebbsfleet United and spent last season with Bromley’s Kent Rivals, scoring 16 goals.
“It’s great to be here. It’s an ambitious club and I can’t wait to get going,” Cheek told www.bromleyfc.tv.
Manager Smith was also pleased to get his man, having tracked Cheek for a while.
“Michael is a proven goalscorer in this division and has established himself over several seasons. To get someone of his quality into our side for next season is massive for us as a club, and it shows where we want to go.”
The Ravens finished in 12th-place in the Vanarama National League table and lost 3-2 on penalties to relegated rivals Maidstone United in the Kent Senior Cup Final, which finished 1-1 at Hayes Lane on 16 April.
