BROMLEY boss Andy Woodman said getting Bromley promoted was an “obsession that consumed my life” as the Ravens celebrated their National League play-off final victory with their fans at the weekend. 

Bromley won promotion to the EFL for the first time in their history when club captain Byron Webster – after two saves from goalkeeper Grant Smith – scored the winning penalty following a 2-2 draw against Solihull Moors at Wembley on May 5. 

Last Saturday, Bromley Council hosted an open-top bus parade from the club’s home stadium Hayes Lane which finished at The Glades shopping centre where supporters awaited their history-making heroes. The mayor of Bromley, Mike Botting, also spoke at the celebrations. 

Woodman took over in 2021 and won the FA Trophy in 2022, also at Wembley. 

“It’s become an unhealthy obsession – it’s really consumed everything in my life,” Woodman said. 

“But when you get all these people turn out for you like this and you know it’s made a difference to their life, it’s worth every minute of that energy that I’ve given it.”
