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.
The support we have been shown this season has been very encouraging and we hope we have entertained enough of you to want to return next season. But before then we need as many of you along to support the boys as possible for our final 3 home games.

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

The support of the club has been overwhelming this season and we hope it will continue for the remainder of the season. Please come along and show your support tomorrow.

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.

Kennington 3 – 1 Kent Football United
Yesterday saw us return to winning ways with a dominant 3-1 victory over Kent Football United.
A brilliant first half saw us control the game from the off with midfielder Tom Scorer causing havoc in the final third. It was Scorer who opened the scoring with a great driving run towards the box before striking the ball low past the keeper.
George Latham’s return to the starting line up was all the confidence he needed to get himself firing again as he doubled our lead. A fanta…stic passing movement with forward partner Sam Conlon ended with Conlon cooly slotting Latham in to strike the ball across goal and into the side netting.
Sam Conlon was once again the provider for Latham as his early delivery from the right was met by the oncoming forward to tap the ball home from close range.
The second half was slightly less entertaining with the tempo becoming flat. The only real highlight was the consolation goal from the visitors as forward James Jewers headed home superbly from the penalty spot.
Another brilliant crowd of 88 watched the entertaining encounter. Thank you all for your fantastic support.

Snodland Town 0 – 4 Kennington
We come away from Snodland with all 3 points after a hard fought 4-0 win that moves us up to 2nd in the table.
Tom Scorer got us off to the perfect start in just the 3rd minute as he drove well into the box and saw his shot deflected through the legs of the Snodland keeper.
Unfortunately that was the only real entertainment of a rather dull first half for both sides as we took a 1-0 lead into the break.
A highly entertaining second half was kicked off with a Snodland player being given his marching orders after a very late challenge on midfielder Gary Clarke.
We wasted no time in using the extra man advantage as Tom Scorer once again drove into the box before rifling his shot low towards the front post giving the the keeper no chance.
Winger Joe Fisher was then introduced to the game and made an instant impact as good work down the left from Tom Scorer and Gary Lockyer ended with a low cross from Lockyer finding Joe Fisher at the back post for him to cooly slot home.
The game was wrapped up when forward Gary Lockyer was brought down inside the box by the Snodland keeper. Joe Fisher stepped up confidently to complete his brace.
With only minutes left the referee awarded the most bizarre penalty to the hosts which was superbly saved by keeper Tom Barnes to give him a well deserved clean sheet.
A massive thank you to fantastic travelling support of over 50 and great to see so many female spectators in the crowd.
Snodland Town 0-4 Kennington (Tom Scorer x2, Joe Fisher x2 )
Ashford Dynamo vs Kennington – Match Postponed as Ashford Dynamo couldn’t raise a side
Snodland Town vs Kennington
Tomorrow afternoon we travel to Snodland Town in the hope of another 3 points as we look to move into 2nd place.
We travel tomorrow without services of midfielder Brad Jordan and defender Ross Lawrie who both miss out with personal commitments.
We do however welcome back goal keeper Tom Barnes from his one game suspension as well as winger Tyla Clements and top goal scorer Sam Conlon after they missed out on last weekends impressive 2-1 win over FC Elmstead.
We also welcome new signing Jack Negus to the club. Jack is a highly technical full back who joins us on loan from Hythe Town. He will go straight into the squad for tomorrow.
We look forward to seeing our fantastic travelling support once again and hope we can make the trip worth your while.
