The Club

Our History

Croydon FC - Est. 1953

History Making

1975-76 proved to be a history making season as the Club went the whole season undefeated in the League. Forty-two games and yet Tilbury pipped them for the championship. It was only the second time in the Isthmian League’s history that this had happened – Ilford were the other club back in 1906-07 and they only had to play ten games in their season.

Read more about Croydon FC and its history.

The humble beginnings

Croydon Amateurs FC was founded on 17th April 1953 to provide senior amateur football in the then County Borough at the newly built Croydon Sports Arena in South Norwood.

With the impending end of amateur status, the club dropped its suffix during the summer of 1973 – it was only due to a Surrey Intermediate League side having the title Croydon FC back in 1953 that it had to be added in the first place. The end of October 1973 and with the club in the nether regions of the reorganised Athenian League First Division – the Isthmians had introduced a second division that year – Ted Shepherd took over as manager, introduced a much more professional attitude and thus began one of the most successful periods in the Club’s history.
