Monday 23rd July 2018

BROMLEY manager Neil Smith has unveiled the signing of winger Reece Meekums following a successful trial at Hayes Lane.

The 19-year-old, has impressed with his pace and trickery, having featured in all of the clubs pre-season fixtures.

Meekums is comfortable on either wing and can also play as a forward, offering versatility across Smith’s front line.

He started out at Brighton & Hove Albion, where he featured in the Under 18s in the 2016/17 season, before moving onto the Under 23s for the 2017/18 campaign, where he was part of the Premier League Two Division Two winning side.

Meekums also enjoyed a loan spell at Worthing, where his goals and performances saw many club’s take interest.

Smith was delighted to secure Meekum's services amidst other interest and told “Reece came in to train with us towards the end of last season and then again in pre-season.

“He’s been fantastic so far and is scoring very highly in our fitness tests. He’s pacy and has a few tricks up his sleeve as well, so I’m sure he’ll be a great addition to the squad.”

Meekums, who has signed a one-year contract at Hayes Lane, added: “It feels good to get it over the line. I’ve been training with the club for a few weeks now and all of the players and staff have been brilliant and very welcoming. It’s time to kick on now!”
