CROYDON COMMON FOOTBALL CLUB
Please note that theSE BIOGRAPHIES are constantly being updated and you may need to empty the cache on your browser to see the latest version. MOST BIOGRAPHIES EXCEED ONE PAGE, SO PLEASE SCROLL DOWN.
I have compiled comprehensive biographies of more than 130 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. All the players below made at least one appearance for the Croydon Common first team, except Fresia (worthy of inclusion as he won a full international cap with Italy) and Payne (who had his photograph in one of the club's handbooks). Although he also did not make a first team appearance, manager Nat Whittaker has been included for completenesss.
Many of the biographies contain photographs and so may take some time to load, depending upon the speed of your internet connection; for example, the biography for Jack Harrow is over 10MB in size.
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. I am also interested in purchasing any items of memorabilia connected with Croydon Common or any player who appeared for the club.
