AFTER a thumping 9-2 FA Vase victory over Newbury on Saturday, the Trams had less cup joy on Wednesday night when they were knocked out of the Surrey Senior Cup on penalties.
The Trams went 2-0 down to Combined Counties League rivals Horley Town in the second round tie, but fought back with the teams drawing 2-2 after extra-time.
However, Horley keeper Ian Chatfield was the star of the show for the visitors when it came to the penalty shoot-out, with the veteran saving all three of the Trams' spot-kicks.
Meanwhile, on Saturday, Croydon recorded their biggest win of the season to take their place in the last 64 of the FA Vase.
It was Newbury who took the lead though after 20 minutes, but Croydon hit back in style through Sean Rivers before Claudio De Almeida, Jason Thompson, Taylor Smith (2), Karl Doughlin, Tom Pratt, Ryan Fowler, and Josh Cover all got their names on the scoresheet.
Croydon host the winner of Littlehampton Town versus Hanworth Villa in the third round proper of the FA Vase on the weekend of December 8.
Littlehampton and Hanworth Villa drew 1-1 at Littlehampton on Saturday. As a result of the third round clash, Croydon's home game against Guernsey has now been postponed.
On Saturday, Croydon host Ash United in the league, looking to build on their 6-2 win at Epsom & Ewell last time out.
Croydon currently sit ninth in the Combined Counties League Premier Division, while Ash currently occupy 19th position, with 17 points from their first 15 games.
Of their six games away from home so far this season, Ash have won one, drawn one and lost four.
