BIOGRAPHIES

 

I have compiled comprehensive biographies of more than 120 Croydon Common players, most of whom also appeared for clubs which were then, or now, in the Football League or Premiership.  The names of these players appear below - click on a name to see the biography.  Many of the biographies contain photographs and so may take some time to load, depending upon the speed of your internet connection.  Please note that the pages are constantly being updated and you may need to empty the cache on your browser to see the latest version.  Please also note that the pages do not appear to open fully when viewed on an iPad.

The content of the biographies should be self-explanatory.  The key to the initials used for the various leagues shown in the appearances section of the biographies can be found by clicking the first link below:

Where there is a quotation in italics in the "Jottings" section of a biography, it has been taken from a newspaper, periodical or club handbook of the day.  Please note that many of the biographies comprise more than one page and so need to be scrolled down.

I am keen to obtain further details, particularly photographs, of players who appeared for the club.  If you have anything of interest, please contact me on ajf@westsussex.myzen.co.uk.  I am also interested in purchasing any items of memorabilia connected with Croydon Common or any player who appeared for the club.
