Goldberg looks at top half finish for Bromley
BROMLEY manager Mark Goldberg was delighted with his side’s start to the new season and feels a top half Conference South finish is achievable.
The Lilywhites impressed in a 2-0 opening day victory at Hayes & Yeading United on Saturday and the Hayes Lane boss believes he has in place a squad capable of a successful campaign.
Goldberg said: “We’ll take every game as it comes, but we’ll be going into every game actually believing we can win every game.
“We want to be in the top half of the table this year.
“My aim is to finish in the highest position we can.
“You have to remember this is so early on, but the signs are looking positive we’ve got the squad to do it.”
He added: “We couldn't wait to get going, we felt confident.
“We felt we’ve got something special in the camp, but you have to get out there and shake off those early nerves and we did that quite well.”
Bromley produced a solid performance at Kingfield Stadium as the two wide men produced the goods to seal all three points.
Summer arrival Brendan Kiernan opened the scoring on 32 minutes, poking home after some tenacious persistence from the boss’ son Bradley Goldberg.
Victory was made certain eight minutes from time when last year’s top-scorer Pierre Joseph-Dubois finished well past Hayes & Yeading keeper Mikhael Jaimes-Ruiz.
And Goldberg could not hide his delight at his team’s overall performance.
He said: “Our wingers are immense, but there’s a lot of good work going on throughout the team.
“Elliot Buchanan showed not only new strength in the middle, but also that he’s got great vision and composure.
“He and Steve Smith formed a great partnership and Jay May and Brad forged a really good partnership up front.”
The manager added: “I’m really pleased with the three points most of all but also the way we played.
“We had a bit of a shaky start but after 20 minutes we started to get more control of the game, becoming more confident in the way we played.
“The goal came at a good time for us.
“Brad pressed quite high and just won something out of nothing and it is great Brendan, who has been immense for us all pre-season, got the final touch and put it in the net.
“We came out in the second half very confidently.
“I thought we played with a lot more composure throughout the second half and it’s probably fair to say in the end the performance deserved the scoreline.”
