Bromley have signed young striker Korrey Henry, beating off competition from fellow National League sides, as well as interest from Football League clubs.
The 19-year-old started out in the youth setup at West Ham United, from where he moved on to then-League Two outfit Yeovil Town. He made five appearances in total for the Glovers, also enjoying a loan spell at Poole Town in September 2018. In his short spell with the Southern League Premier Division side, he scored four goals in three appearances.
After leaving Yeovil, Henry was snapped up by Braintree Town manager Danny Searle in February 2019, and he went on to net five times in 15 National League appearances.
Henry was quick to express his excitement at signing for the club: “I’m happy to sign for a club who give young players a chance. I’m only fifteen minutes down the road so I’ll be getting in on time, no excuses!
“Bromley are a good footballing side and I’m elated to have the chance to be a part of that.”
Manager Neil Smith added: “I’m delighted to have Korrey on board. He finished last season scoring five goals in The National League for Braintree, so he knows this division and is starting to make a name for himself. I believe with the players we have here, he will be in an environment where he can learn and develop quickly.”
