Cray moved to a new ground at Grassmeade in 1955. Drawing extra support from the commuter town of Orpington, they played in the London League and then the Aetolian League. 1951/52 heralded a new era, and an upturn in the club's fortunes, when local businessman Mick Slater took over at the helm. They were three times crowned champions, won the League Cup twice, and also won the Kent Amateur Cup three times. The club was elected to the London League and regained its senior status. Their stay there was a very successful period in the club's history.


The club had an 18-month period to obtain planning consent from Bromley Council for a new sporting community hub, featuring a new multi-sport stadium with a spectator capacity of 1,300. On 3 October 2014, Cray Wanderers signed a conditional contract to purchase Flamingo Park Sports Centre in St Pauls Cray on the A20 Sidcup bypass. This was achieved in April 2016, when the Council approved the proposal.[12] There was disappointment when the application was later refused by the Mayor of London and a revised set of plans were being prepared in 2017.[13].

In the debate on the application, which was opposed by the Police and the GLA as well as other bodies, it was clear that Councillors were supportative of a proposal to relocate Cray Wanderers to a new home in St.

They were a nursery club for Woolwich Arsenal during part of this period. They were one of the founder members of the Kent League in 189495, and they won the championship in 190102. After being Kent Junior Cup semi-finalists and finalists in 189091 and 189192 they entered the first ever FA Amateur Cup competition in 189394. They had a spell as a professional club between 1895 and 1907. Cray Wanderers were a strong force in senior county football at the turn of the century. Other honours included Southern Suburban League champions in 189899, West Kent League champions in 190304, and Kent Senior Cup runners-up in 18991900.

Ian Jenkins, who had managed the club for 14 years, left in September 2013.[5] Keith Bird and Mike Paye, managers of Bromley's reserve team, were appointed as manager and assistant manager respectively. The team was relegated into the Isthmian League Division One North at the end of April 2014. Gary Abbott and Mike Paye became joint managers of the team at the start of October 2014. On 5 January 2015 the club appointed Tommy Warrilow as the new manager. Warrilow masterminded a dramatic "Great Escape" from a second successive relegation as the team won their last ten games of the season.


Cray rejoined the Kent League in 193435, but their four-year stay came to grief when 1936 saw the loss of the Fordcroft ground in Cray Avenue, their home since 1898. Cray were forced to drop into a lower level of football, drifting from one temporary pitch to another while the club committee dwindled to a perilously small number. After World War One, Cray switched to the London League where they remained till 1934. The team struggled badly in the South London Alliance and the Kent Amateur League. In the 193031 season they won the Kent Amateur Cup.

Cray started playing football at Star Lane, now a cemetery. Unfortunately for the club, in 1998 the Kent League ruled that clubs must have floodlighting. After playing at numerous other grounds, Cray played at Grassmeade from 1954 to 1973, after which they moved to Oxford Road.

Success came quickly because Cray won the championship in 1980/81, having been runners-up the year before. Cray decided to return to the Kent League in 197879. Their powerful new team under manager Harry Richardson reached the FA Vase quarter-final and 5th round in those two seasons. After finishing Kent League runners up in 1990/91, Cray had a lean period during most of the 1990s, with the exception of 199293 when they won the Kent Senior Trophy. After that, the 1980s decade brought only one more piece of silverware, the Kent League Cup in 198384.

The pitch at Star Lane is now a cemetery, and is located beneath the nine-arch railway viaduct that spans the Cray Valley. The first origins of Cray Wanderers are linked to the construction of the London, Chatham and Dover Railway line during 1858 to 1860.[1] During their leisure time, migrant workers kicked a ball around, and that is how the club originated in the St Mary Cray village. The industrial belt of the River Cray, especially the paper mills, provided much of the club's support up till the 1950s.

In the summer of 2008, Cray announced plans to move to a new stadium near Orpington by 2014.[9][10] Official plans published on the club's official website on 18 February 2009 confirmed that the new ground at Sandy Lane would be open by 2014, for the 201415 season, subject to planning consent.[11] The stadium, which is proposed to be part of a new "Sports Village-like complex" is set to be eco-friendly and be built to an initial Conference standard.

They also reached the Kent Senior Cup final, played at Hayes Lane on 26 July, where they lost to Ebbsfleet United 40.[4] Cray again reached the play-off final the following year, in which they beat Metropolitan Police 10 and were promoted to the Isthmian League Premier Division. In the 200708 season Cray reached the play-off final after finishing 3rd in the table, but lost to Tooting & Mitcham United 10 at Imperial Fields.
