Neil Smith is still pinching himself at Bromley’s fantastic start to the season – and doesn’t want the dream to end!
The Ravens have beaten both relegated Football League clubs within a few days.
Last Tuesday Bromley thrashed Leyton Orient 6-1, a result which has in some circles been described as one of the best in the club’s long history.
They followed that up by edging past Hartlepool United 2-0 on Saturday at their home ground of Hayes Lane.
Blimey when I went Bromley in 1997 there were only 100 or so at the match v Harrow B. 1-2.

Manager Smith would have seen his side go to the top of the league but for Sutton’s late winner at Chester.
They are in second place and Smith thinks it is down to hard work.
He said: “We had to roll up our sleeves and compete and we did that – it wasn’t easy at all and we really did have to dig in.
“We played well in the second half and the players deserve a lot of credit. They played with great freedom. I’m proud of them.
“We managed to play to our strengths and it’s great to see us so high up the table. I don’t think many fans or any sides would have predicted the start we have had. We’re delighted.”
