Woodman happy to stay in Bromley dugout

Bromley left Edgeley Park with a point after a late Liam Hogan own goal extended the National League high-flyers unbeaten run to 10 matches.

Such strong form from the Ravens has seen their manager Andy Woodman linked with a move away from the club, yet the Bromley boss was quick to dismiss any rumours after the Stockport draw:

“I’m at Bromley and I’m happy to be here. I’ve got a job to do and I’m not just saying that.

“I’ve got a good owner backing me, I’ve got a good group of players and I’m at a club that is on the up”.

Woodman proud of work being done at Bromley

Hartlepool United had been linked with Woodman, as the League Two outfit look to replace the vacant managerial role left behind by Dave Challinor.

Woodman admitted he was flattered to be amongst the favourites for the job, but was open about his commitment to Bromley:

“Me and my chairman have been on the phone everyday speaking about the situation and we’re quite comfortable with everything.

“There’s been a lot of speculation about Hartlepool and it’s flattering because it means I’m doing something well”.

“We’re not Wrexham or Stockport or Chesterfield, we’ve not got the budget some other teams have, but we do have a squad that fights for everything”.

Woodman already turned down other club

Since taking charge in March, Woodman has earned plaudits for the work he has done with Bromley, putting them within the mix for a playoff spot.

However, Woodman revealed that the Hartlepool saga was not the first time he had turned down another club:

“With respect, me and my chairman have already turned down another club that went about things the right way”.

It is no surprise to see Woodman amongst the list of suitors for top managerial roles and as long as he keeps the Ravens flying in the right direction, it will no doubt be the last approach for his services this season.
