James Alabi says the desire shown by Bromley to bring him to the club was the overriding factor in his recent move.

The former Chester scoring star left Leyton Orient this summer, having been on loan at Eastleigh when the 2019/20 season was halted back in March.

Having recently joined Neil Smith’s National League side, Alabi told this site: “What was key for me was going somewhere where I’m wanted, first of all, and going somewhere where I believe I can get a lot of game time. I had options to go to some League clubs, but after the talks I had with them, it didn’t sound like they wanted me that much; it was a case of maybe I could be a back-up squad player.

“After I went to meet the Bromley gaffer Neil, he really gave me that feeling of the belief that he had in me. Throughout the pre-season period, me and him have got on well, he’s a really good man-manager and motivator, so I feel like it was a great decision for me to come to Bromley.

“It’s a place not far from home, so when fans can get back in, my family can come to games, and I can see them after games and whatnot. So yeah, it was a no-brainer for me.”
