London’s oldest football club is fighting for its future after submitting a revised planning application to Bromley Council to build a new stadium.

Cray Wanderers held a planning launch at Bromley Football Club on Saturday, December 9, before their home match against Hythe Town where they won 4-1.

Prior to the match fans had the chance to examine the revised planning application for their potential new home.

Chairman of Cray Wanderers, Gary Hillman, said: “The day was a massive success for the club, both the event and the game that followed.

“It was fantastic to see so many supporters attend and for the clubs young people to be centrally involved.

“It was great to be able to explain the scheme that we hope will keep London’s oldest football club alive whilst bringing benefits to the entire local community.”

The location for a new stadium is on the site of Flamingo Park, Chislehurst.

A previous application to Bromley Council in 2016 passed before Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, refused it upon referral.

The new plan has a reduction in previously developed land as suggested by Mr Khan.

An extra community football pitch is proposed along with more Green Belt openness.

If granted – the stadium would be comprised of a clubhouse and stands with a floodlit artificial playing pitch.
