Cray Wanderers to reach out to six million television viewers in the Far East

Sunday 10th August 2014
Over six million people in the Far East will soon learn about Cray Wanderers – London’s oldest football club – when it stars in Unseen Football, a sports documentary produced by one of Thailand’s main television broadcasters.

On Tuesday morning, a production team from Thai TV 3 will film Cray Wanderers at Hayes Lane, where they will hear about the club’s history and learn about its latest plans for a new stadium.

The documentary will air this winter across Thailand and neighbouring counties and will also feature the history of two of the Premier League’s biggest clubs, Arsenal and Chelsea.

Krisdin Suwanbubpa, the production manager from TV3, said: "It's an honour to visit and learn about London's oldest football club. It is a chance to educate our viewers on an important part of English football history.

“I really appreciate Mr Hillman (the club’s chairman) and his team for their kind support"

Thai TV 3, established in 1970, is a free-to-air Thailand television channel headquartered in Bangkok and is owned by BEC-TERO. 

The Wands began their inaugural Ryman League Division One North campaign with a disastrous 5-1 home defeat by AFC Sudbury at Hayes Lane yesterday.

Debutant defender Steve Springett was sent-off for a professional foul inside the penalty box and Daniel Maxwell converted the resulting 24th minute penalty.

Sudbury scored four more goals before debutant striker Shaun Welford notched his first goal for the club at the death.

The Wands – who finished bottom of the Ryman Premier League last season - are second-from-bottom in the Ryman League Division One North league table after 90 minutes of football. 

Burnham Ramblers are below them in the table following their 4-0 defeat at Romford.

Manger Keith Bird takes his side to play Thurrock on Tuesday night. The Essex side are third following their 3-0 win at Brentwood Town.
