ONE of the oldest football clubs in the world celebrated reaching its highest ever level with an open top bus parade.

The Cray Wanderers Football Club, who are due to mark their 150th anniversary next year, is set to play at its highest ever level next season - The Ryman Premier League.

The Wands will be lining up against nearby rivals Dartford after winning promotion from the Ryman Division One South with a playoff victory over Met Police.

Fans lined the route which started in Sidcup at 11am as the bus, led by chairman Gary Hillman, travelled through the Crays, Orpington and Chislehurst before finishing in Bexley in the late afternoon.

Cray currently use Bromley FC's Hayes Lane stadium to play their home games but plans are afoot to relocate to their own ground at Sandy lane St Paul's Cray by 2014.
