Thursday 14th June 2018

BROMLEY manager Neil Smith has unveiled the arrival of London-born right-back Tobi Adebayo-Rowling.


Adebayo-Rowling, 21, can also play on the wing, arrives from Irish League champions Cork City and has also presented another Irish side Silgo Rovers.

Schooled in Rottingdean, Adebayo-Rowling spent his time as a youth player at Brighton & Hove Albion, before moving on to Eastbourne Borough and Peterborough United, where he signed a professional contract in 2015.

He went on to make five first team appearances in League One, before departing The Posh in February 2016.

Following this, Adebayo-Rowling made the move to Ireland, where he represented Silgo Rovers for over two seasons, making 56 appearances, without scoring a goal.

During his time with Silgo, he spent time training with Crystal Palace and Portsmouth, but eventually signed for Cork City, where he made five appearances, without scoring.

Bromley finished in ninth-place in the Vanarama National League (the fifth-tier of English football) last season.

Smith told “I’m really pleased to have Tobi on board. He’s been playing out in Ireland and we’ve had some fantastic reports on him.

“It’s a position we’re looking to strengthen in and he’s coming in looking to kick on again.

“I like him as a player, he’s an attacking right-back who likes to get forward but at the same time is solid defensively.”

On Twitter, Adebayo-Rowling, added: “Delighted to have signed with Bromley FC.  Thank to everyone at Cork City for my time there.  Privileged to have met such a great bunch of lads who will be hugely missed!

"I'm really excited to get started with Bromley. It's a great club with great facilities and one which is definitely on the up! I can't wait for the upcoming season."

Cork City manager John Caulfield told : “After an injury early on, Tobi found it difficult to break into the team but it was a pleasure to have him at the club.

"He signalled a number of weeks ago that he wanted to move on due to a lack of game time and, thankfully, he has got a move now that should see him playing more regularly.

"On behalf of all at the club, we thank him for his time here and wish him all the best for the future.”
