Six Bromley businesses are teaming up to help out Bromley FC fans who were let down by the cancelled Spennymoor Town match last week.

Bells Accountants, Command Electrical, JP Air Conditioning, Printingprogress, 1st Scenic Windows and Doors and Make Me Local will pay for two coaches to take fans to the rescheduled away match on Tuesday, March 13.

Nathan Kelsey, managing director of Make Me Local, said the businesses approached Bromley FC after seeing fans’ anger on social media.

“I can’t believe [Spennymoor Town] would do that,” he said.

He estimates between 40 and 50 fans paid for travel to Spennymoor Town before hearing the match would be cancelled shortly before kick-off due to a waterlogged pitch.

Me Kelsey said: “We want to turn ill feeling at the club into something that is positive. Hopefully this will reflect on the pitch.”

Jerry Dolke, club chairman said: “This is an amazing gesture from some great local businesses.

“It was a long trip for our fans, many of whom had taken time off work, only to find they’d travelled for nothing.

“Now hopefully they’ll be able to go again and get to see a game this time.”

As well as compensating for the travel of fans who had already bought tickets, Mr Kelsey hopes the offer will encourage other fans to make the journey and support their home team.

“It’s a big game for the club,” he said.

A statement from Bromley FC confirmed that priority booking will be given to fans who made the original trip, but there will be some space for extra fans on the two coaches.

“It could be a memorable night,” Mr Dolke said.
