Croydon today kicked off their Pre-season campaign with a late and unlucky 2-1 defeat at Horley Town.
Croydon took the lead early on through JJ Johnson but their Southern Combination hosts got back into the game before scoring a late winner. The Trams also missed a penalty on a hot day near Gatwick.
A good work out today for my new look trams/trialists definitely take the positives from it, 2-1 defeat in the 90th min and we missed a pen. Most important thing was banking the minutes. Good luck to @HorleyTownFC hope you go and win the @TheSCFL. @Croydon_FC

Following the game Croydon confirmed another two names going into their squad for this season. Midfielder Marlon Fraser and Centre-Back Oliver Spedding are the latest to join the club.
Next up for Croydon is the trip to Whyteleafe on Tuesday.
