Deji Elerewe made history for Bromley on Wednesday night, heading home a late winner to book the Ravens’ spot in the National League play-off semi-finals for the first time ever.
The 19-year-old academy graduate played the full 90 minutes and bagged the decisive goal 13 minutes from time as Bromley came from behind to defeat Woking 2-1 at the Kingfield Stadium.
Speaking to BT Sport post-match, Elerewe said: “We worked on set pieces all week in training and it was good to get a goal for the team. It was unreal, I’ll be honest! It’s my second goal of the season and I’m buzzing.
“We’re a very good side, we’re driven and we’re hungry. The fans are unbelievable and we want to go all the way.”
Andy Woodman’s side will now travel to the Technique Stadium on Sunday to take on Chesterfield in the semi-finals. The clash kicks off at 3.30pm (BST) and will be shown live on BT Sport.
