VIDEO: Bromley ‘score’ from a throw in, only for it to be disallowed, flare gets on the pitch and burns a hole

Things got bizarre at Bromley tonight after they thought they scored an equaliser against League One side Bristol Rovers, only for it to be ruled out.

On the 75th minute, Chris Bush saw his throw-in go straight in, bouncing amid a crowd of players two yards from the line, but the referee deemed nobody got a touch on it, so disallowed it.

The fans got excited thinking that the goal stood and threw a flare onto their pitch, only for it to burn a hole in the artificial turf.

The Bromley players on the field and the staff looked puzzled after initially celebrating the goal going in.

Bristol Rovers, who had lost their past three FA Cup ties against non-league opposition, held out to win 1-0 thanks to Jonson Clarke-Harris who found the net after just three minutes into the first half.

The League One side reach the second round for the first time since 2016-17.


After watching the bizarre scenes at Bromley, fans took to give their thoughts with many mocking the fans for burning a hole in the pitch with a flare – see those tweets on the next page.
