Welcome to the home of The Rams Army, the supporter’s club of AFC Croydon Athletic which is a member of the Southern Counties East Football League. The club is owned by the supporters and was formed in 2012 following the demise of Croydon Athletic FC.
Our aim is to support the club in any way we can. This generally takes the form of financial support, but we also aim to assist with ground improvements, repairs and development as well providing vocal support for the team.
The Johnny Johnson Memorial Cup has been arranged for Monday 20th August with a repeat fixture of the inaugural match last year when AFC Croydon Athletic take on Bromley. The match will be played at Mayfield Stadium with a 19:45 kick-off. Those wishing to follow the progress of Palace Vs Liverpool will be able to do so in the clubhouse. Neil Smith, who was assistant manager to Croydon Athletic when the club entered administration, will bring his FA Trophy finalists to Mayfield to compete for the cup which is contested annually in memory of our late president.
