Carroll drops Bromley a bombshell

Tuesday 09th May 2006

Bromley midfielder Danny Carroll has dropped a bombshell by revealing he has left the Ryman Premier League club, writes Stephen McCartney.

Carroll jumped at the chance to re-join the Hayes Lane outfit when George Wakeling returned to the club late in 2004.

But the former Conference player has admitted travelling from his South-West London home is too much for him.

“Living in Hampton, I cannot get over to Bromley twice a week to train, which I need to do in order to produce my best performances on the pitch,” he said.

“After much thought, I have decided to play for a club more local to me next season in order to get properly fit.

Carroll is the first player to publicly leave the club following the departures of George Wakeling, Billy Smith and Frank Coles at the end of this season.

And he was pleased he helped the club win the Kent Senior Cup, beating Nationwide Conference neighbours Gravesend & Northfleet 3-2 after extra time recently.

He added: “I am also delighted that my final home game saw us win the Kent Senior Cup for two great manager that I have been friends with for many years.”
