Our partner league, the Kent Disability League, are looking to appoint a Media Officer and a Fundraising Officer. The Kent Disability League is a pan disability league which caters for all ages from 8 years kdl logoold, it started in the 2005/2006 season to provide regular competitive playing opportunities for young players with a disability. Now 7 years on, there are over 50 small sided teams regularly taking part in the League making it the largest County Disability League in the country. This includes a fully established adult section which was created in 2009 after a successful pilot competition. The League is ability banded so players of all abilities can play at an appropriate level based on their skill level and impairment. All the clubs meet once a month at either Play Football in Gillingham (Juniors) or The Abbey School in Faversham (Adults) and play all the other teams in their division in a festival like event. The results of the one day festivals are accumulated over the course of the season to decide the overall winners of each division. The League itself was originally run and administered by the Kent FA but all League operations are now the responsibility of the new League committee which includes representatives from various clubs within the League. The Kent FA maintains a close working relationship with the League but the creation of the new league committee has ensured the League has long term sustainability.

Kent FA, Kent County Football League and Kent County Council Team Up to provide Mental Health Workshops

Kent FA is delighted to announce it is partnering up with the Kent County Football League and Kent County Council to provide a series of workshops for Kent football clubs around how you can provide support for people dealing with mental health problems.

The partnership was formed in September when it was revealed that statistics showed that it is estimated that over one million men in the UK suffer from chronic loneliness and social isolation. In Kent, statistics showed that suicide is the largest cause of death among people aged 25 to 44 – there were 182 suicides in 2013, 144 of these were men.

MH box 3Due these alarming numbers, it was decided that football should be used as a caveat to help raise awareness for mental health support within Kent. Kent FA will be hosting two first aid workshops that focus on providing support and breaking the stigma that has attached itself to suffering from Mental Health problems over the years.

Paul Dolan, Kent FA’s Chief Executive said: “This is such an important issue that clearly impacts on the football community in Kent. To be able to take a proactive role in challenging perceptions of mental health and provide support to those who are involved with grassroots football to protect and care for our players is a great privilege.”

Cyril Windiate, Chairman of Kent County Football League said: “We are incredibly pleased to be able to offer these workshops to football clubs across Kent. Mental Health is an important issue which has been overlooked for too long. When I saw the statistics of young men in Kent who take their own life, we decided to take action at tackling the issue.”

The first workshop, which has 23 spaces available, is to be held at Kent FA Headquarters, Invicta House, on the 30th November.
To book on, please fill in this form.

People feeling distressed, anxious or down are able to call the Mental Health Matters helpline for free on 0800 107 0160, (or 0300 330 5486 from a mobile). Support workers at the helping use counselling skills to provide confidential emotional support and guidance. They also have details of local and national support services that callers may find useful. Support from the Mental Health Matters helpline is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.


Two games are featured this week, we are grateful to Andy Clay who has provided pictures of the Premier Division clash between Stansfeld O&B and Snodland Town, which saw the visitors maintain their 100% record winning 3-1, their goals were scored by Tom Cackett and two from David Sherwood. Billy Jolley replied for Stansfeld.

Our League Photographer, Julie Hoare, saw the Division Two West match between Crayford Arrows and Dulwich Village. This also had a 3-1 scoreline with Crayford recording their first league win of the season. Dan Dixon, Daniel Probets and Robert Treleaven were on the score sheet for the Arrows and Maxwell Smith netted for Dulwich Village.

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.   SLTIposterKCFLSupported 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.
