Bromley strike it lucky with new signings

Thursday 11th May 2006

It’s a case of “striking it lucky” for big spending Ryman Premier League club Bromley this week - with the captures of Gravesend & Northfleet’s Bobby Bowry as player-coach and 29-year-old midfielder Barry Moore, writes Stephen McCartney.

Moore has joined the Hayes Lane club on a one-year contract from Nationwide Conference South outfit Thurrock.

He is expected to replace Bromley favourite Danny Carroll, whose revealed this week that travelling from his south-west London home was taking its toll on the PE Teacher.

Moore had signed for Thurrock from AFC Wimbledon in February 2006 and has also played for Malden Vale, Hampton & Richmond Borough, Hayes, Woking and Crawley Town.

He moved overseas to play for Charleston Battery in South Carolina before moving back to England and was Lewes' skipper during the 2004-05 campaign before joining the Dons last summer.

Meanwhile, Bromley have added some high-profile pre-season friendlies as they prepare for the new season.

Premiership newcomers Reading (15th July), Gillingham (25th July) and Crystal Palace (1st August) visit Hayes Lane, whilst their away matches are against non-league opposition.

They travel to Havant & Waterlooville (29th July), Lordswood (8th August) and Whyteleafe (12th August).
