Croydon Amateurs FC was founded on 17th April 1953 to provide senior amateur football at the newly built Croydon Sports Arena and there has been a senior team in existence uninterrupted since then. Croydon FC currently play in the Southern Counties East Football League, First Division. (Link here)
Croydon finished eighth in the league in the 2021/22 season with 60 points (18 wins, 6 draws, 14 losses), scoring 67 goals and conceding 62. Matches are played on Saturday’s and Wednesday’s with training sessions weekly.
The current manager Liam Giles returned to Croydon FC in November after some time away at Epsom & Ewell, during which time Tyler Chambers ran the First Team. Liam’s passion for the club and a desire to complete “unfinished business” brought him back to complete the 2022/23 season. He completed over 100 matches in his prior tenure but remains focused on achieving promotion and continuing to build the club.
Liam’s interview with TramsTV on his return to the club can be found here.
