As a groundhopper, it is good to keep a list of the grounds that you most want to visit and I myself have a top 20 list for grounds in `The 92` and non-league grounds that I want to visit and one of the grounds on that list that I want to visit is the Croydon Sports Arena which is home to Croydon FC. One of the reasons why I want to visit Croydon FC is because they are only 6 miles away from where I live and it is one of the grounds within the M25 that I need to visit. Groundhopping has been very limited this month because there hasn't been many games that I can go to and I've only been able to visit one new ground so far this month and that was Brisbane Road.
Anyway back to Croydon FC, I have wanted to go there for the past year or so seeing as they are one of the local grounds that I need to tick off and because the ground is very easy to get to from my house. Since this season started, I have tried to find a day when Sutton aren't playing/playing a game I can't go to and Croydon FC are home but these games have been hard to find and whilst looking on some forums a few weeks ago, I had finally found a fixture that had a day where Croydon FC were home an Sutton was playing away and I couldn't go and that was on the 30th December and Croydon were playing same town rivals A.F.C. Croydon Athletic.
