Our ever diligent roving reporter Chris Hulme has once again been on the trail of fans of our future opposition. On this occasion, we warmly welcome Bromley fan of Rob Shirley to give his own unique perspective on his team in our second instalment of ‘views from the other side.' We hope that you enjoy the read.

How old were you when you went to your first Bromley match, and who did you go with?

I must have been about 16 ( I am 60 now) and would go with a few mates when West Ham were playing away. It was very much an amateur club and to be honest not much better than "jumpers for goal posts."

What was it that made you a Bromley supporter?

I was brought up in Bromley, so they were my local team. I have been a West Ham supporter since a boy, but finally got fed up with the hype that is the Premier League. I am now a regular home supporter of Bromley and I have to say I find it a much better experience than going to West Ham. In fact, I now sit with like- minded ex season ticket holders of other premiership big guns including Arsenal, Spurs and Palace.

What do you think of Bromley's season so far?

Considering that most fans of Bromley were just hoping for a season that would avoid relegation back to the Conference South, we have performed better than anyone could have hoped for. If we had not given away some easy goals like last weekend against Altrincham we would be in an even better position. 

Who is your stand out player for Bromley this season and why?
Moses Emmanuel has been fantastic! He is exciting to watch and of course the league's top scorer at present. But for consistency I think our left back Joe Anderson warrants a mention.

If there is one Macclesfield Town player you could sign, can you tell me who it would be it be and why?

From what I hear Kristian Dennis is playing well and could cause our back four a few problems so it has to be him.

If there is one thing you would like to change at Bromley, what would it be?

I would not change much. We are a very well-run community club, and our present success is due to some very hard work by very dedicated owners and management. However I would change the antiquated sound system in the stand. I'm never quite sure whether it is playing music or just noisily vibrating.

And finally what's your score prediction for the match?

Going by the league table and both teams home and away form I would give Macclesfield the edge. However with our pace and form up front anything is possible. Overall I think a draw would be a good result for us.

Thanks Rob. Good luck for the rest of the season after Saturday of course.
