Used to go to a few Croydon FC games, went to one that had about 1000 fans mainly cos the away team Aldershot brought about 900.
I used to play for the youth team for ages and played on the pitch and trained in the arena quite a bit. Their old chairman/manager was this fat jock, right her was. The main reason the team is in the shit at the moment.

The old chairman/manager has gone, now the chairman is Dickson Gill and the team is managed by Russell Harmsworth. Don't expect to see crowds of 900, come to think of it, don't expect to see crowds of 90. Croydon would get crowds of 20-50, even when Palace are away and fans are staying at home.

I'll go to Croydon Sports Arena (quite handy that Arena tram stop is nearby) to watch the game against Sandhurst, and also see the Kent League teams to see what they're like. Of all the Kent League teams, I knew of Greenwich Borough (I knew Wrighty played for them) and Maidstone United, who got promoted.

Anyone else watching the game at the Sports Arena? And having a cheap drink in the club's bar afterwards?

Did Wright even play for them? I thought that he had a trial at us and if it didn't go well then he was goin to sign for them. I may be wrong. Also yer crowds are very small but tickets can't be that much and burgers have some meat in them.

Croydon Athletic play behind my old school. I shat on their trainer's bench when I was 14.

It was just plain old Lanfranc in my day. Adding the "Archbishop" bit was their pathetic attempt at making the school look upmarket.

Croydon's run in the FA Cup is over for another year. Tim Murdoch scored Croydon's only goal in their 2-1 loss, a thumping shot from his left foot, the goalie had a touch but Murdoch's shot was too strong for him.

The next home game is the local derby between Croydon and Beckenham Town on Bank Holiday Monday, KO 11 AM, at least it doesn't clash with any Palace games that day.

Incidentally, the club have launched a lottery scheme to help raise funds for the club and details can be found here -

Ken Jarvie, who saved Croydon from going under in the early 90's. They did not have a team, so he played a Saturday pub side for the rest of the first season in order that they could finish their fixtures.

He managed the team with Dixon Gill until they fell out. Won two promotions and took Bromley women's team in, changed the name to Croydon, put money behind them and they won the Womens FA Cup at the Den (v Liverpool) and had a number of England womens team on the books.

I think the farce over the Womens team when he had no support from the FA when Charlton poached them took away all Ken's drive and he left not only the club but the country and now runs a bar in Cypress.

He had a number of links with Palace, Kenny Sansom was involved for a time and they had a few matches with Ex Palace 11's. Was talking to CPFC about the reserves playing at the Arena and about the time Palace went into administration was also negotiating with the club to change the womens team from Croydon to Palace, but that was all lost when we had to pull in the spending because we had no money.

Ken was a good football bloke and had lots of ambitions for Croydon, but the attitude of the FA and the Rymans league wore him down. The continued breakins and yobs who caused lots of damage in and around the arena, lack of support from Croydon council and the final straw Charlton being allowed to break FA rules and poach the womens team finished him off.

Until the council invest some money to stop the breakin's and make the whole place a bit more inviting then they will go nowhere.

The continued breakins and yobs who caused lots of damage in and around the arena, lack of support from Croydon council and the final straw Charlton being allowed to break FA rules and poach the womens team finished him off.

Until the council invest some money to stop the breakin's and make the whole place a bit more inviting then they will go nowhere.
Without Ken Jarvie, Croydon would be long gone, and that is 100% fact. Even the secretarial work for the Croydon reserves was done by one of his family (his wife I think). Bizarre why so many people who follow football have such little respect for people like Ken Jarvie.

Back to the present day...

Anyone looking for a football fix in the absence of a Palace game, Croydon are home to Sporting Bengal United. Expect lots of goals, Sporting Bengal lost 10-3 last Saturday.

And you can watch the England game in the bar afterwards
