A note for Cray Wanderers supporters that the FA Youth Cup 2nd Qualifying Round tie between Glebe v Cray Wanderers takes place on Thursday 29th September, 7pm ko.

The match was due to be played on Friday 30th September but was moved to Thursday with the forecast for poor weather on Friday.

Cray will be made up of Academy and U18s players and advanced to this round with a bye in the Preliminary Round followed by a penalty shoot out victory against Dulwich Hamlet in a tie that was played at Foxbury Avenue on 17th September.   Glebe have had a more straight forward route with a 3-1 win at Welling Town in the Preliminary Round followed by a 5-1 win at home to Lewisham Borough to set up a repeat of last season’s 1st Qualifying Round tie which Glebe won 3-1.

FA Youth Cup ties are always exciting and this game has the added spice of a local derby.

Address:  Glebe FC

Foxbury Avenue

Off Perry Street



The club is located just off the A222 close to the Vauxhall Garage and a stone’s throw away from the Sidcup bypass. Head down Ashfield Lane if coming via the War Memorial and onto Perry Street. Take a left into Foxbury Avenue and the ground is about 0.4 miles up the road. If you are looking for a bite to eat and a spot of dinner then the Frogpool Manor restaurant is a short walk away but in Chislehurst itself there are plenty of places to eat. The nearest pub is the Sydney Arms in Old Perry Street across from the A222 (it can be a very busy road to cross).

The nearest station is Chislehurst but is close to two miles away. The 269 bus from the station will take you close to the ground.

Sidcup station could also be a possibility with decent links if you are heading back to London. The 260 bus will also take you there either heading to or from Sidcup.
