MEMBERSHIP - is drawn from across the Borough of Greenwich and surrounding areas. Membership is open to all, with the Club promoting equality of opportunity and diversity. The Club Development Plan emphasises the need for further initiatives in including females, the disabled and socially excluded as part of future coaching and playing provision.

MISSION STATEMENT - to encourage and promote the development of grassroots football, with emphasis on youth involvement drawn from the local community. 

CRAY VALLEY & THE COMMUNITY - The Club believes that, as a provider of football in a structured, safe and fun environment, it addresses several key criteria for the local community – reducing crime and anti-social behaviour in providing an outlet for local youth, engaging all ages in a healthy and recreational past-time, promoting personal development through individuality, teamwork and the socialisation one would associate with a community club culture.

The Club provides a structure for continuous active involvement as players move through an association with youth and senior football. The Club is outgoing and makes positive links with leisure organisations, community groups, borough/parish councils and local Schools in order to widen access and participation. In order to recognise our work, the club has applied to the FA for Charter Standard Club status.

The Club Tea Bar can be found in the Middle Park Avenue corner of the ground, just beyond the entrance to the Members Bar, and serves a range of hot food, drinks and snacks. You’ll usually find Leah serving at the counter, and I can recommend her burgers which are cooked fresh to order so please be prepared for a short wait! The Tea Bar usually closes once the half time rush has been served.Access from the ground to the main clubhouse bar is usually available just before the half time whistle for you to grab a drink and catch up with the latest scores from across the country on the TV’s. Access to the Members bar is strictly reserved for committee members and their invited guests.Supporters can take drinks outside of the clubhouse and into the ground, except during FA Competition matches, but they MUST be in a plastic glass, so please ask for one, as glass will not be permitted, for health & safety reasons. Your involvement in the match is fully expected – from behind the pitch side barriers of course - but please remember, we are a family club and Cray Valley (PM) FC fully supports the Kent FA’s “Swearing – Let’s Tackle It” campaign.
