Flyers announce 2019 Matthew Bromley Memorial Game

Bristol Flyers can confirm the 2019 Matthew Bromley memorial game will take place from 5pm on Saturday, May 25th at the SGS College Arena.

The three exhibition games, featuring Flyers players, staff and volunteers from past and present are played each year in memory of former player Matt Bromley, who was tragically killed in a car accident at the age of 23. Matt made a significant contribution to basketball in Bristol and Trowbridge and is greatly missed.

Bromley grew up in Trowbridge and began playing basketball as a teenager at school. In 1996 he led his Clarendon College team to the England Schools National Finals and then went on to join the Trowbridge Hawks in the West of England league, where he became one of the club's most capable senior players.

After leaving Clarendon, Matt attended Bath University to study an HND course in Sports Education & Coaching, playing a critical role in the University team's success, helping them reach the BUSA Finals in 2004.
He went on to join the Flyers in 2005 to continue playing the game he loved, where he was a key part in the team that won the National League Division Three Championship in April 2006.

The games are an opportunity to pay our own tributes and respect to an outstanding friend, team-mate, player and coach.

Admission is by donation and all funds raised on the night will be donated to the Matthew Bromley Foundation, which is set up to help fund young talented athletes achieve their basketball aspirations.
