Sutton Athletic vs Kennington Away KO 3.00pm
( London Hire Ground, Lower Road, Hextable, Kent, BR8 7RZ )
Monday 22nd April
Kennington vs Greenways Home KO 3.00pm
This weekend we travel to Hextable on Friday afternoon to face 5th placed Sutton Athletic. A win there would confirm a top 4 finish as we currently sit 4 points ahead with only 3 games to play.
Then on Monday we welcome former Kent County rivals Greenways to the Homelands Stadium for our final home game of the season. Another win on Monday could see us in contention for the league title, depending on the results around us.
Fortunately we go into both games with a full squad and will be looking to end the season by extending our unbeaten run to 8 games.
Huge congratulations to 1st team manager Dan Scorer. At the club nearly 5 years and on Saturday took charge of his 150th game as manager of Kennington FC. Two promotions, two 2nd placed finishes, Kent County Premier League title and created history by leading the club to step 6 football for the first time in our 130 year history.
Bring on next season and the FA Vase! 💛🖤
Phoenix Sports Reserves 0 – 5 Kennington
Today’s game away at Phoenix Sports Reserves ended in a comfortable 5-0 win to keep us in the hunt for a top 3 finish. A rather flat first half was finally injected with some entertainment just 5 minutes before the half as midfielder Gary Clarke pounced onto a loose ball, before striking low across goal and into the bottom corner. An explosive start to the second saw us race into a 3-0 lead in just 3 minutes. Defender Tommy Penfold was first to head home after a perfectly de…livered corner from Joe Fisher. Then Gary Clarke doubled his tally for the afternoon as a brilliant cross from winger Tyla Clements found Clarke in space to head home from 6 yards out. George Latham was then introduced and once again showed he’s attacking prowess as a quick fire double wrapped the game moments from the end. A cooly slotted finish and back post header were enough to see the game off in style.
Another great away victory and another 3 points that keeps us just 4 points behind league leaders Bridon Ropes with 3 games to go!
Red Heathens 2 – 3 Kennington AET (Tom Wilkes, Josh Jones, Lewis Horne)
Saturday 13th April
Phoenix Sports Reserves vs Kennington Away KO 3.00pm
We’re back in action this weekend as we travel to Barnehurst to face Phoenix Sports Reserves in what could potentially be a massive 3 points for either side. Our hosts currently sit 17th in the table and will be desperate to claim all 3 points this weekend as they battle against relegation. A win for us this weekend would certainly keep the pressure on the top 3 as a loss for either of them could see us sit just 1 point behind them with 3 games to play.
As always we’d love as much support as possible and we hope that some of you are able to make the trip to show your support.

Red Heathens vs Kennington Away KO 10.30am
Kennington 3 – 1 Market Hotel
Huge congratulations to Keith Rice and Mike Hodges after our Kennington Sunday side were crowned champions of the Ashford & District Premier Division for the first time in the clubs history. A fantastic 3-1 win over current holders Market Hotel saw us claim the league title with goals coming for Tom Scorer and a brace from Jordan King.
Well done to all involved and what a year of football it’s been for Kennington Football Club.
Kennington 3 – 1 Erith and Belvedere
It’s another massive 3 points for us today after we defeated title hopefuls Erith & Belvedere 3-1 at Homelands today. A strong start from both sides saw an open and end to end opening 20 minutes. The deadlock was then broken on the half hour mark when Sam Conlon was found in space on the right before cutting inside and laying the ball off for forward Gary Lockyer to slot the ball home. With both sides still forcing the best out of the opposing defence it took a sublime effor…t from midfielder Sam Brown to double our lead. Brown was first to bring the ball down after a clearance and took one touch before striking superbly across goal and into the side netting from 25 yards. Another intense start to the half from both sides saw early chances for both teams but it was Gary Lockyer who was once again perfectly placed to score as he headed home brilliantly from a Tad Greenfield corner.The 3 goal lead was soon cut back to 2 as a superbly disguised pass through the middle of the Kennington defence was met by the Erith forward to slot home.A slightly nervy end to the game saw a brilliant defensive display, leaving the visitors forward line frustrated.
Today’s win has now secured our seasons target of a top 5 finish with 4 games to play. We’re set to push the title contenders all the way now as we sit in 4th place just 4 points off of new league leaders Bridon Ropes.

Saturday 6th April
Kennington vs Erith and Belvedere Home KO 3.00pm
We’re back in action this weekend and it’s another massive test for us as we host title hopefuls Erith & Belvedere at the Homelands Stadium.
After a disciplined and determined performance against league leaders Welling Town last weekend, we’ll be hoping to carry that into this weekends game and secure our position in the top five. The reverse fixture ended in a 0-0 draw and was another great example of the commitment of these players, having played 120 minutes against Sheppey United on the Wednesday evening.
Our visitors however then went on to maintain a 17 game unbeaten run before recently losing out in 4-3 defeat to the league leaders. They also have the leagues top scorer amongst their ranks in forward Harry Harding who is currently on 40 goals for the season across all competitions.
This weekends game is sure to be a fast paced and open ended encounter so be sure to head down to the Homelands Stadium for what is our penultimate home game of the season.

Kennington vs Meridian VP
Tomorrow afternoon we welcome bottom of the table Meridian VP to the Homelands Stadium for what is sure to be a very entertaining encounter as both sides will be desperate to claim 3 vital points.
Our visitors are rooted to the bottom of the table and will need to put together a decent run of form if they’re to avoid the drop. Meridian are without a win in 5 but will be confident of changing that after narrowly losing 2-1 to 3rd place Bridon Ropes last weekend.
Brad Jordan is our only absentee this weekend as we welcome back defender Matt Hadlum and midfielder Joe Fisher.

Kennington 4 – 0 Forest Hill Park
We take all 3 points in today’s league game with Forest Hill Park in a 4-0 win.
A dominant first half saw us keep our visitors pinned into their half for the majority of the opening 30 minutes. After a number of chances failed to break the deadlock it was Tom Scorer who opened the scoring with a well taken header at the front post from a Tad Greenfield corner.
The second half started very similarly to the first as we dominated the early moments of the half with the front four of Scorer, Conlon, Lockyer and Hastings all working hard from the off. Once again Gary Clarke and Sam Brown asserted their dominance in the middle of the midfield allowing us to play quickly on the counter attack.
Tom Scorer doubled our lead and his tally for the day as he picked the ball up from the left and drove toward the visitors goal before cutting inside and driving the ball low past the keeper from the edge of the area.
The Forest Hill front line began to push for a goal but the defensive partnership of Tommy Penfold and Matt Hadlum was as solid as we’ve seen this season with full backs Greenfield and Negus helping to keep the attacking threat of the visitors to a minimum. Keeper Joe Mant was well on hand to deal with any opportunity created by the visitors.
In form forward George Latham then came on to replace Tom Scorer and wasted no time in getting himself on the scoresheet once again as he shrugged off the Forest Hill defender before cutting inside and poking the ball through the legs of the keeper.
Latham then turned provider as he broke down the left in the last moments of the game before squaring the ball for Gary Lockyer to tap home.
Another important 3 points in our push for a top 5 finish. Thank you once again to those that showed their support at Homelands today. We have just 4 more home games left for you to come along and show your support

Kennington vs Appledore Home KO 10.30am Ashford Charity Trophy
Kennington vs Forest Hill Park
After a strong team performance in last nights friendly with Deal Town our attention now turns to Saturday when we welcome Forest Hill Park to the Homelands Stadium.
The reserve fixture saw us come away empty handed in a 2-1 defeat. Our visitors have been on a decent run of form but come into the game off the back of a 1-0 defeat to Lydd Town.
We will certainly be looking to bounce back after failing to claim all 3 points last weekend against Greenways. The squad is set to look a lot stronger as we welcome back 5 absentees from last weekend.
Our home attendances have been by far the best in the league this season and we’re extremely grateful of all the support that’s been shown. We would love for the support to continue as we go into the business end of the season.
Kick off 3PM at the Homelands Stadium.
