Recent events surrounding the Coronavirus is affecting us all and at this time the priority for everyone must be to ensure the health and wellbeing for everyone.
Croydon FC fully supports the decisions taken to safeguard everyone and playing football seems a long way off and on the back-burner.
We have offered the use of our facilities to Croydon Council to assist them with this massive challenge.
The club is working hard to understand the implications of the situation in terms of our work in the community, players welfare, supporters and club finances. With no matches planned, our clubhouse closed, revenue generation for the foreseeable future will be very limited.
Over the past 12 months the club has been broken into on three separate occasions. These caused thousands of pounds of damage and loss to the clubhouse, which also serves as an educational base for young people as part of the Kinetic Foundation programme. We have and continue to work closely with Croydon Council who have been very supportive.
The club has a loyal band of supporters and volunteers and together with our sponsors we hope we can address the issues put before us and continue the good work of Croydon FC, a community asset for the people who live work and enjoy Croydon. We will keep you informed.
Keep well and keep safe
Croydon FC Management Board.
