We lost our Grassmeade ground in in 1973 when our landlord sold the ground for redevelopment. We moved to Oxford Road in Sidcup, in time for the 1973/74 season.
The 70’s proved to be a golden period for us. In 1974/75 Cray won the Met London League and the League Cup. We then joined the London Spartan League and won the league title in 1976/77 and 1977/78.
We returned to the Kent League in 1978/79 and won the league title in the 1980/81 season, having been runners-up the year before. Around this time a powerful team had been developed, under the management of Harry Richardson, and we reached the FA Vase 5th round and the quarter-final the following year. After that we only won one more piece of silverware, the Kent League Cup in 1983/84.
