Tyler Chambers quits Croydon after only 17 games in charge, leaving the club in their lowest league position in their entire history

Monday 07th November 2022

CROYDON begin the search for a new management team after the resignations of manager Tyler Chambers and his assistant Joe Brown on Saturday.

The Trams suffered a 4-2 home defeat at the hands of Snodland Town at the weekend, a result that leaves the club in the bottom three in the Southern Counties East Football League First Division table with 10 points.

Croydon have won two and drawn four of their 11 games and have Forest Hill Park (eight points from 10 games) and Bermondsey Town (four points from 13 games) beneath them in the table.

“Following the resignation of Tyler and Joe on Saturday, the board are currently reviewing several candidates for the management role,” said a club statement.

“More information will follow once a decision has been made.

“We’d like to take this opportunity to thank them both for all their hard work this season and wish them both the very best in their future careers.”

Chambers was in charge at Croydon Sports Arena for only 17 games in all competitions, winning five, drawing five and losing seven.

The pair arrived at the club on 15 May, taking over from Liam Giles, who is currently part of the management team at Epsom & Ewell.

The Trams are currently in the lowest league position in their entire history - in the tenth tier of English football - and they travel to third-placed side Lydd Town next Saturday, 12 November.

Story update:

Liam Giles left Epsom & Ewell to take charge of Croydon for his second spell on Tuesday 8 November.
