Bromley 4-0 Ebbsfleet United
Bromley 4-0 Ebbsfleet United

Bromley maintained their unbeaten start to pre-season with a 4-0 victory over Kent neighbours Ebbsfleet United.

First half goals from trialist and Jude Arthurs were added to by Michael Cheek and Marcus Sablier in the second to seal a comfortable win.

Bromley broke the deadlock mid-way through the first half when the trialist side-footed home after clever work from Cheek.

The trialist frontman was then the architect of the second, after pressuring Chris Haigh into  an error he fed Cheek who laid off for Arthurs to smash home.

Ebbsfleet twice came close to pulling a goal back but on both occasions Mark Cousins denied Lee Martin.

The second half saw Cousins deny Rakish Bingham and Bromley immediately made Ebbsfleet pay. Trialist’s chipped pass to Cheek saw the frontman round Haigh and slot home.

Despite being three goals down Ebbsfleet continued to press and substitute Michael West was unlucky to see his flick rebound off the post and away to safety.

There was still time for Bromley to punish Ebbsfleet further and academy graduate Marcus Sablier added gloss to the scoreline late on pouncing on a defensive error to beat Haigh.
