Cray Wanderers are closer than ever to having a place to call home after the Greater London Authority finally gave it’s backing to the Flamingo Park Project.
Cray consulted extensively with Bromley Council, local residents and the GLA over the last four years to provide the club, its 14 teams and community scheme with a home ground. Support for Cray’s plans has been overwhelming across all political parties, and now Mayor Sadiq Khan and the GLA have approved the scheme that will provide eight sporting pitches, a stadium, and a purpose-built community hub, to benefit sports fans of all ages into the future.
Cray have had to groundshare with Bromley for almost 20 years now after seeing several ideas fail to get through the planning hurdles but now Chairman, Gary Hillman, can celebrate his plans getting the green light.
