Pompey mourn Brian Bromley

Friday March 9, 2012

Pompey Chimes is saddened to hear of the passing of Brian Bromley. A super player for Pompey in the early 1970s. He was a particular favourite of mine. 

The following is a squad list taken from a 1970 photo which is unfortunately copyrighted, but brings back many fond memories.

Extract from Portsmouth Football Club Official Site:follows:  

Former Pompey midfielder Brian Bromley passed away suddenly at Southampton General Hospital on Friday, March 9 at the age of 65.

George Smith brought Bromley from Bolton – where he started his career and became a youth international – in November 1968 for a fee of £25,000 to replace Bobby Kellard.

He played 95 second division and cup games for Pompey – scoring three goals – and often wore different numbered shirts as he showed his versatility in midfield and forward roles.

Two of his best matches in a Blues shirt were against Millwall in a 3-0 win shortly after he joined the club and a 3-1 triumph over Swindon the following season.

Bromley will also be remembered for being sent off in an FA Cup replay at Highbury in 1971, making him the first Pompey player to be ordered off the field in any match for six years.

Among his team-mates at Fratton Park were John Milkins, Ray Hiron, Nicky Jennings and Albert McCann. Brian’s away match room-mate in later years was fellow Lancastrian Colin Blant.

An ankle injury restricted his progress in the 1971/72 season and he was allowed to join Brighton in January 1972.

Brian then moved on to Reading, Darlington and Wigan before returning south to end his playing days with non-league Waterlooville.

Bromley, who was known to his friends by his surname, ran the White Hart public house in Portchester for many years, before working part-time at the Portchester Social Club near to where he lived.

He was an occasional spectator at Fratton Park and was sat in the south stand for January’s match against West Ham.was sat in the south stand for January’s match against West Ham.
