1890 – 1914
In 1894 Cray Wanderers was one of 14 founder members of the Kent League. Included in this league were teams from Crystal Palace, Charlton Athletic, Millwall and Woolwich Arsenal. We won the League championship in 1901/02 season. The club continued playing in this League, with one or two exceptions until their promotion to the Ryman League, at the end of the 2003/04 season.
The year 1895 saw the club change its colours from chocolate to their now-familiar amber and black. And in 1898 we moved to a new ground called Fordcroft on Cray Avenue in St. Mary Cray (now the site of Allied Bakeries), where we remained until 1936. Other honours included Southern Suburban League champions in 1898/99, West Kent League champions in 1903/04, and Kent Senior Cup runners-up in 1899/1900.
1950 – 1969
In 1966/67 we switched to the semi-professional Metropolitan League for five seasons commencing before it was merged with the Greater London league in 1970 to form the Metropolitan London League.
1990 – 2012
Once again we tasted success as champions of the Kent League in 2002/03 and 2003/04. We also reached the FA Vase quarter-final for a second time and achieved promotion into the Ryman League South Division. Five years later at the end of 2008/09 season came further promotion into the Ryman Premier League, the highest level of football that the club has played at since the Second World War.
Today we are going through a period of transition which we believe will help us emulate our glories from yesteryear.
