Streetcar New Years game returns to the web for the local community


Football heroes: Some of the donations raised for the South Norwood Community Kitchen during yesterday’s game

Croydon FC may have lost their first game of 2022 to an unlucky goal in added time at the Arena yesterday, but the people of South Norwood have emerged as the real winners after an incredibly generous day of donations organized for the kitchen local community and food bank.

The Trams, under their new president, Gavin English, have progressive and community-based plans, with the ambition of returning the club to the Isthmian League in four years.

South Norwood Community Kitchen organizers called yesterday’s drive “epic.”

“Thanks to everyone who sorted,” they said, “Gavin for inviting us, Jason, Warren and everyone who helped. We may not have won on the field but we still left some winners!

“I can’t wait to see how our two community organizations can work together for bigger and better things in the future. “

With English now the club president, the football club board has been reorganized to have the skills to move the club forward.

There’s the promise of new players arriving this month (it’s the January transfer window, after all), and creating a fan forum as well.

Meanwhile, the South Norwood Kitchen’s fundraising and self-help donation work continues, now with donations of toys and games for the children of refugees and asylum seekers living in Croydon and Crystal Palace.

“We’ve put together an Amazon wishlist,” they say. “If you are able to help us provide these children with good quality toys, or if you have something new and similar to give, it will bring a lot of joy. “
