Alex Exadactylos is back discussing his team Bromley FC
Hi Alex – so eight games in, how would you rate Bromley’s season so far?
Thank you for having me on this feature. Well, where do I begin! In all honesty, we were not given the easiest set of fixtures to commence our National League season. With that in mind, we have picked up some very impressive wins, so, generally, we have had a great start.
How’s your recent form been?
Excellent, it’s poetry in motion so far! We have won four games in a row and out of those games, we gained three clean sheets.
What’s been your highlights so far?
I must say that victory against former Football League outfit Grimsby Town was brilliant. 0-1 down in treacherous conditions to win 3-1 was very spectacular, especially as Corey Whitely scored a superb long range effort. The win against Eastleigh was also decent.
How’s your summer signings settled in?
As the season is early, I want to properly assess the new signings come the half-way point of the campaign, I try to be fair! However, so far, so good.
Who’s your key players and why?
Michael Cheek, last season’s top goalscorer in the league, has been brilliant. He has that striker’s instinct of always being in the right place at the right time. Corey Whitely has been incredible. He plays in the difficult position of wing-back this season and his work rate is unstoppable, adding goals to his game also.
Of course! We are confident this season, there’s a good sense of belief around the club that we can go on to achieve something special at the end of the campaign. There are some great teams in this league, making it very competitive, I don’t think that will faze the team at all though. Pressure is a privilege as they say…
What’s your main strengths as a squad?
Our belief. We feel we can do well this season and our ambitions are growing by the year as a club. Secondly, our depth is brilliant. We struggled in previous seasons when injuries occurred but it is safe to say now that we have the squad to cope.
Where’s best for the Yellow Army to grab pre-match food and drinks?
There is a Wetherspoons opposite Bromley South Station called The Richmal Crompton and it’s only a fifteen minute walk to the ground.
And finally, give us a prediction for the game on BT Sport?
As we now have momentum, I am going to go with a 2-0 win for Bromley.
