Tranmere Talk’s One to Watch – Bromley FC

By Peter Tscherewik

Tranmere Rovers host Bromley at Prenton Park this Saturday, where they will be looking to extend their home winning streak to nine matches.

The Super Whites will be desperate to bounce back with a positive result having been held to a frustrating 1-1 draw away at Leyton Orient last weekend.

Bromley are unbeaten in their last six matches (in all competitions), winning four, drawing two. The Ravens have the sixth best away record in the division, and given their current form they will feel optimistic as they make the long trip up north.

Louis Dennis is Bromley’s top-goalscorer this season (13), but it is the man who is one behind him that features as the Tranmere Talk one to watch from the opposition.

Josh Rees


Rees joined Premier League side Arsenal as a schoolboy, and was there for a total of 12 years before leaving in the 2012-13 season. Incidentally, he made no senior appearances for the Gunners.

Following that, he moved on to Nottingham Forest’s youth team and made his debut for the senior side in May 2014. Despite that, he made no further appearances at Forest and was released by the club at the end of the 2015-16 season.

The midfielder then played out the 2016-17 season at Chelmsford City, before making the move up to Bromley for this campaign.


Rees has 12 goals to his name in this domestic campaign, and has been in scintillating form of late. The midfielder has netted four times in Bromley’s last three games, and has been massive in helping his side climb closer to the play-off spots in the league table.

The 24-year old was voted as the Ravens’ Man of the Match last weekend, as the side drew 2-2 at home against Maidstone United. Rees has proven to be a stellar addition to Bromley’s side, since signing from Chelmsford City.

When at Chelmsford, he managed to score eight domestic goals from 50 appearances. The fact that he has already surpassed that tally this season, in the division above where he was in 2016-17 shows that he is someone that Micky Mellon and his backroom team will sure to have been monitoring in the build up to the weekend’s fixture.
