ANDREW GIDLEY’S WEEKLY ROUNDUP
The weekend’s seven Premier Division games only produced 22 goals – seven of them coming in one game as Tudor Sports beat Chipstead 4-3. Joshua Eyeoyibo, David Akinuli (two) and Sam Cormack netted for Sports, while Ryan Tierney, Jonathan Coleman and James Porter on target for the Chips, who are still looking for their first point of the season.
APM Contrast and Metrogas, first and third in the table fought out a goalless draw, while Greenways are second following their 2-2 draw at Stansfeld O&B. Billy Shinners got both for the home side, while Dan Cross and Ben Jeffries were Greenways marksmen.
Dan Mitchell scored twice as Hildenborough Athletic won 2-1 at Fleetdown United, while Brendan Cullen got both for Bredhurst Juniors as they beat Erith 147 Sports by the same score.
The two other games both ended in 1-1 draws – Arun Suman (Greenways) and Sam Brown (Borden Village) – Peter West ( Staplehurst Monarchs United) and Dean Berry (Holland Sports) were the respective scorers.
League Photographer Julie Hoare saw a seven goal thriller on Saturday as Tudor Sports defeated Chipstead by 4 goals to 3 in the Premier Division.

KENT FA LAUNCH ONLINE HANDBOOK
The Kent FA have today launched their online library that replaces the traditional printed handbook.
Kent FA Chief Executive Paul Dolan said “We listened to our key stakeholders and considered all our options including potential data protection and safeguarding challenges. With this in mind we have created an online library where our volunteer workforce can access important documents on the go, 24/7, via a number of devices”.
The online resource is free of charge and unlike the traditional paper version of the handbook; it can be updated throughout the season. The resource is also supported by a ‘Find a Referee’ and ‘Find a Club’ tool which provides up to date contact details for referee and club secretaries.
The library and tool are the first of its kind and cements Kent FA’s position as being ‘Ahead of the game’

The Kent County League Supports SWEARING – Let’s Tackle It
The Kent County League is proud to support the Kent FA Youth Council’s ‘SWEARING – Let’s Tackle It’ campaign. Supported by members of Kent FA staff, the Youth Council collaborated with Fixers UK, a charity which supports young people across the UK to take action and change things for the better, to orchestrate a campaign tackling foul and abusive language in the game. From initial concept development to the execution of filming a promotional video, the Kent FA Youth Council has directed the campaign to help eliminate and raise awareness of the negative impact of bad language in football. The Kent County League looks forward to offering our support for this initiative to combat foul and abusive language in the game, as we believe for football in the county to continue to grow in a positive way, such behaviour needs to be tackled. The Kent County League are committed to creating safe and inclusive football environments for everyone and as a result fully support the Kent FA Youth Council for bringing this issue to the forefront of grass roots football in Kent. You can watch the Youth Council’s video below.
