Bromley FC bid to make history in FA Cup first round
7th November 2014

The Ravens have made it to the First Round proper for the fifth time in eight years, having won their three qualifying matches this season.
The Conference South side have also started using a brand new training pitch, which has been funded and built after receiving planning permission five years ago.
Manager Mark Goldberg has a long history with the club and is now in his third spell as manager. The former Crystal Palace chairman said he thinks his side can make history at the weekend.

"It's inspiring for every player to be part of just gives everyone a spring in their step. We're extremely excited, but more importantly we feel that we stand a chance", he said.

And captain Rob Swaine said that there's a bit of extra spice to this fixture.
"Being local rivals, I'm sure that there's going to be at least two or three thousand people here. With the friendly rivalry we've got with Darford, It's going to be an electric atmosphere."

Should they beat Dartford one more win would take them to the third round for the first time in their history, the stage at which the Premier League sides enter the competition.
Given that extra incentive, it's possible that Chelsea or Arsenal could be heading to the Fortress Stadium in January.
