Bromley reach National League play-off final after comeback win over Altrincham

Bromley scored three second-half goals to come from behind to beat Altrincham 3-1 in their National League play-off semi-final at Hayes Lane on Sunday.

The Ravens will take on Solihull Moors at Wembley next Sunday in the National League play-off final for a place in the Football League.

Corey Whitely had the first chance of the afternoon.

Myles Weston found Michael Cheek inside the area, and the experienced striker found Whitely arriving, but his shot was drilled straight into the path of Altrincham keeper Ethan Ross.

Andy Woodman was forced into an early change when Ben Krauhaus, who will join Brentford’s B team at the end of the season, was taken off 25 minutes into the contest.

The away side went ahead in the 31st minute when Chris Conn-Clarke swivelled inside the area and took aim, with his effort being deflected past Grant Smith by Regan Linney.

Bromley equalised straight into the second half when Myles Weston turned home a corner from Jude Arthurs. 

Arthurs went from providor to goalscorer when he gave Bromley the lead met a long throw into the box from Idris Odutayo.

Former Charlton youngster Weston doubled his tally and added a third four minutes later when he curled a stunning left-footed shot beyond Robins keeper Ross.

Woodman’s side are just one game away from entering the Football League for the first time in the club’s history.
