BOSS Brendan Kelly says the sky's the limit for Bromsgrove Sporting after they secured promotion from Southern League Division One Central.

The Rouslers bagged play-off glory with a thrilling 4-3 extra time win over Corby at a packed Victoria Ground on Monday.

A Jason Cowley double and a Rich Gregory strike put Sporting 3-1 up after they'd initially fell behind in the contest.

However, two goals in the final five minutes for the visitors sent the clash into extra time after Sporting had failed from the penalty spot.

Kieren Westwood’s drive edged the home side back in front before Cowley then had his side’s second spot-kick stopped to add to the drama.

Despite that, Bromsgrove held on to their advantage to secure promotion in front of nearly 3,000 fans.

Kelly spoke of his pride at the achievement and thinks the club can continue to build on its potential with the step up.

He said: "This group can definitely make an impact at the next level as well. Their performances have been more than impressive this season and they have maintained that over the course of the season.

"We didn't drop out of the top three all season and that takes some doing.

"The sky's the limit for this club now and it's up to the players if they want to be apart of that. They'll all be invited to come and be apart of pre-season.

"For now we're just going to enjoy and enjoy what we have achieved."

On the play-off final victory, he added: "I think I went through every emotion possible. There was despair, elation, everything.

"It felt at one point, especially missing two penalties, that we just did want to win it. But in the end we found a way and I think we deserved it.

"My main feeling at the moment is pride.

"The players have played so well this season and have worked so hard.

"The players are exhausted but that's what it takes to win promotion. We have players that are willing to put their bodies on the line. They just don't know when they're beaten and have been absolutely incredible.

"I'm also delighted for the fans. We had people here from all corners of the country and it was such a great occasion and fantastic to see."
