Trophy and out for Giles at Croydon


Croydon FC boss Liam Giles has called time on his stay as the Trams First Team Manager.

Just two weeks after he led them to Trophy success Giles has decided to “pursue a new challenge.”

“The time has come for me to step away from my role as manager of Croydon FC,” he said in a Social Media statement.

“It truly is a special club and one that will always hold a special place in my heart but I feel the time is right to pursue a new challenge.

“I am immensely proud to have bought silverware back to Croydon Arena for the first time in 15 years. I would like to thank the board for their continued support since I came back to the club. Thank you to all of my players, staff and of course the Trams Barmy Army.

“I suppose it’s now time to see what next season holds?”

The Club thanked Giles for his “exceptional efforts” and supports his “emotional decision.”

“Croydon FC have been in discussions with 1st team manager Liam Giles this week, who feels that following a season where he has brought silverware to the club for the first time in 15 years, it is time for him to move on and seek challenges elsewhere.

We have greatly enjoyed working with Liam, his commitment to the club and efforts week in week out have been exceptional and it is entirely appropriate that we support him in what has been an emotional decision for him and very much wish him all the best.


Croydon FC is now welcoming applications from those interested in the role of First Team Manager for the 24-25 season.

Please email to express interest and for means of submission.

The deadline for proposals will be Monday 6th of May 5pm.
