Cray Wanderers Junior Football Club
The Pimlico team are pleased to have sponsored the Cray Wanderers Football Club, an English semi-professional club based in South London.
Cray is recognised as the second oldest football club in the world, established in the year 1860. The Cray first team play their home matches in Hayes Lane and share the ground with Bromley FC. The Courage Stadium – as it has been named – has a capacity of 6,000 (3,000 seated). The Cray Wanderers first team currently play in the Isthmian League Premier Division.
Cray Wanderers have teams in the younger age groups starting at under 8s and going right through to the academy youth team for 16-18-year-olds. The Club’s academy offers full-time training opportunities and a chance for success in a sporting career, while still offering an educational route. The academy competed in the Isthmian youth league in the 2009-10 season, finishing an impressive 2nd place.
Work Experience at Pimlico
