Match ends, AFC Fylde 2, Bromley 1.
AFC Fylde 2-1 Bromley
A stunning second-half strike from Danny Rowe saw AFC Fylde kick off their National League campaign with victory over Bromley.
Omar Bugiel and Jordan Higgs threatened for the visitors early on but Fylde got a grip on proceedings as the half wore on and only a fingertip save from David Gregory kept Rowe out.
On the stroke of half-time, the Coasters made the breakthrough as Andy Bond tapped into an empty net from close range when Bromley failed to clear a cross.
Higgs equalised for the Ravens when he slid the ball under home goalkeeper Jay Lynch from a tight angle.
Rowe's winner caught Bromley cold only four minutes later, though, with the man who scored 28 goals for Fylde last season bending a fantastic effort into the top corner.
