AFC Croydon Athletic are ramping up preparations ahead of the 2021/2022 football season and already have their first friendly fixture scheduled.

The club were successful in securing financial support through the Return to Football and Lockdown funds. 

The easing of restrictions saw the junior teams return to football on April 11. The first team will return to training at the end of April, ahead of a friendly fixture at Holmesdale FC on May 8. 

Works are already underway to prepare the pitch and facilities at the ground. 

Seán Ryan, Commercial and Fundraising Manager said:“Welcoming children and parents back to the Mayfield Stadium represents a huge step towards normality at the club. 

“The first team are due to kick off in early August and we’re optimistic that it will coincide with the return of spectators at non-league football. 

“We’re always on the lookout for volunteers who can turn their hand to a variety of jobs at the ground. If you can spare a few hours, you’ll be guaranteed a very warm welcome.”
