Spennymoor Town v Bromley preview

Following three postponements Bromley travel up to Darlington on Wednesday for the latest attempt to play their FA Trophy Quarter Final replay with Spennymoor Town.

After the third postponement the FA have decided to move the game from Moors Brewery Field to the home of Darlington FC in the hope of getting the game played to a result in time for the Semi Final first leg on Saturday V Gateshead.

Spennymoor haven’t played since the original tie at Bromley on 24th February, their latest game to be postponed was away at Telford on Saturday, Bromley did manage to play at home on their 3G surface this weekend defeating ten man Guiseley 2-1 with a last minute winner from Omar Bugeil.

Putting the saga of the postponements aside this game is still a huge opportunity for both sides to go one step close to a major cup final at Wembley Stadium. Moors won the FA Vase over Tunbridge Wells there in 2013, but in Bromley’s case it’s the first since their 1-0 FA Amateur Cup Final win over Romford in 1949, watched by 93,000.

This is the furthest The Ravens have gone in this competition since entering in 1973.

Going into the game Bromley are tenth in the National League with 55points from 34 games, while Spennymoor are seventh in the National League North with 48 points from 27 matches, having only lost once in 2018.

A group of local Bromley businesses have clubbed together to provide a free coach for Bromley fans wishing to travel to the game at Darlington, leaving Hayes Lane at 10am. Priority will be given to the fans who made the trip to Spennymoor last Tuesday only for the game to be called on just over an hour before kick off, despite passing two earlier pitch inspections.

Should the game have to be postponed on Wednesday, the tie will then be switched back to Hayes Lane on Saturday 17th March.
