Lee Minshull leaves Bromley: Great to sign-off with a win and tenth-place finish in my last game for Bromley and my last game as a professional

Sunday 30th April 2017

BROMLEY midfielder Lee Minshull says he has played his last game for the club.

The Ravens finished their campaign with a 2-0 win at Gateshead yesterday to finish in their highest ever position in tenth-place in the Vanarama National League table with a personal best of 62 points from their 46 games.

Louis Dennis scored twice in the final 12 minutes to ensure the Ravens  finished in the top ten at the end of their second season at that level, improving on their fourteenth-place debut finish on 60 points last season.

“Great to sign-off with a win and tenth-place finish in my last game for Bromley and my last game as a professional,” said Minshull, 31, who has come to an end of his two-year contract at Hayes Lane.

He added on his Instagram account: “Thanks to everyone at Bromley FC and good luck for an exciting future.

“Onto a new chapter and looking forward to creating more memories as a part-time player.”

Bromley manager Neil Smith has worked wonders to reach his top-ten target this season, despite having a small squad and having the spine ripped out of his team after goalkeeper Alan Julian, central defender Rob Swaine and striker Adam Cunnington dropped two leagues to sign for Billericay Town in January.

It was a bad career move then, it certainly was now for the trio as the loud Essex outfit finished in eighth-place in the Ryman Premier League table with 72 points from their 46 league games, finishing three points adrift of the play-offs.

Billericay Town did win The Alan Turvey Trophy (Sponsored by Robert Dyas) after thrashing Tonbridge Angels 8-3 at Carshalton Athletic’s Colston Avenue, which will only be remembered by that pre-match dressing room video.

“Thank you to everyone associated to Bromley FC, chairman, directors, coaching staff and players (for) the team spirit in the last few weeks,” Smith said on a rare posting on his Twitter account.

“The biggest thank you is to the supporters who have been absolutely fantastic all season, even through our tough times. Thank you so much.”
