The Bromley Boys
A Boy. A Girl...and the Worst Football Team in Britain
Currently in pre-production The Bromley Boys is a funny yet touching coming of age football memoir played out to the sights and sounds of late 60’s/early 70s Britain. Based on the hilarious novel by Dave Roberts, it recounts the author’s highs and the lows supporting his beloved Bromley FC through one particularly disastrous season. Bumping along at the bottom of the bottom non-league division, and effectively the worst football team in Britain, Bromley had reached breaking point. Desperate for a change of fortune, and deluded by his own over active imagination, David unhatches a plan that will not only see Bromley grabbing the headlines on Match of the Day but also have a number of top flight clubs descending upon Hayes Lane to scout Bromley’s not so star striker.
Throw a love interest into the mix in the form of the Bromley Chairman’s daughter – who actually hates football – and you have a love triangle which has David’s football fandom tested to the core. It just goes to show, you can’t choose who you fall in love with...
"Will strike a chord with football fans everywhere".
Adrian Chiles, author of We Don't Know What We're Doing
The Bromley Boys will be directed by Steve Kelly and produced by TJ Herbert, Dean Fisher and Darryn Welch and stars Alan Davies, Martine McCutcheon, Jamie Foreman, Adam Deacon and Ewan Macintosh.
