    Hi I am part of the Cray Valley (PM) FC set up, and since we entered the Kent League in 2011/12 season which came sooner than we expected. I have been trying to do some sort of a more detailed history of the club.
    I noticed in your Cray Valley report you had some and I would like to know where you got the information. I have been checking some for myself and have established the club were formed in 1920 with the Kent FA which means in 2020 it will be our centenary year.

    We have now sorted the problem with the cups of tea, and the floodlights and the seated stand are now at the ground. We also have a covered terrace for a 100 spectators where the turnstile is situated. I would love you to come back to the ground and I am sure I will pleased to buy you a cup of tea.

    Just to add that the new badge the club wear on their shirts is designed with club colours and the fleur- de- lis, this was the very first water mark on any paper and was first iproduced at the original Cray Valley Paper Mills in the late 1700 hundreds. So the club have not forgotten their roots.

      Hi Dave,

      Thanks for getting in touch. Most of a research has been pulled from the clubs website and a bit of digging online. Good to learn about the fleur de lis. Very interesting! I’m sure we’ll be back as it’s only a short trip over from Brockley.
