The Bromley Boys is a funny yet touching coming of age football memoir played out to the sights and sounds of late 60’s Britain. Based on the hilarious novel by Dave Roberts, it recounts the author’s highs and the lows supporting the worst football team in the country at the time – Bromley FC.  Starring Brenock O’Connor as David, with Martine McCutcheon and Alan Davies as his mum and dad.

“Tragedy plus time equals comedy. So is the case with The Bromley Boys, based on author Dave Roberts’ memoir of supporting the worst football team in Britain. Not only that, but his story is also centred on the worst season they ever had. Said to be “based on real events (and some rumours)”, the film makes reference to the creative embellishments that make it such a warm, sweet crowd-pleaser. Whether the feature is historically accurate or not, it sure is lovely.”  The Upcoming

A calamitous season in the lower levels of non-league football, circa 1970, may not seem like the natural arena for a vivacious coming-of-age drama, but, thanks mostly to a winning turn from its remarkable teen star Brenock O’Connor (who played Olly in Game of Thrones), this is almost an unexpected triumph.”  The Times
