Kennington Football Club

The formation of Kennington Football Club dates back to before 1890. The Kent County Football Association records show our existence in 1888, however The Football Association put our birth in 1885.

What is not in dispute was that Kennington Football Club was the oldest junior club in Kent. Both the associations marked the fact and presented the club with illuminated addresses to mark the achievement in 1988.

Throughout most of the last century the club competed in the local Ashford and District League where the opposition was mainly drawn from village sides, together with a large number of military teams along with sides representing strong railway connections.

The advent of the company sponsored teams began to emerge around the seventies. The club has fixture cards and photographs dating back to the 1900’s.

The club took the decision to step up the football pyramid into the prestigious Kent County League in the 1980’s. This was an attempt to mix with stronger opposition, better playing conditions, and in turn, a higher standard of officialdom both on and off the pitch.

Kennington Football Club has a long established and well respected Junior Section from where many of today's squad began their playing careers.

Our step up into the Southern Counties East Football League is the result of success in winning the Kent County Premier League in 2017/18.

The club entered an exciting new phase of its history for the 2018/19 campaign, ground sharing at Ashford United's Homelands Stadium, with Dan Scorer's side finishing a highly creditable third in their inaugural season at Step 6.

Kennington entered the FA Vase for the first time in 2019/20, making it through to the second round. Promotion beckoned once again as the side were top with six games remaining, prior to the season being abandoned due to the covid-19 outbreak.

Another first was achieved at the start of 2020/21, with Ton gaining entry into the FA Cup – narrowly defeated by a solitary goal to nil at home to Erith & Belvedere.

Dan Scorer's 200th game in charge was marked with a 2-0 victory at Glebe in the FA Vase, taking Ton to the third round for the first time, prior to bowing out at home to Combined Counties outfit, Sutton Common Rovers.

The club's rise continued at the end of 2020/21, achieving promotion to the SCEFL Premier Division by virtue of the FA's NLS restructuring at Steps 4-6 - a move which saw Ton grace Step 5 for the first time in its history.

The club finished fifth in its debut season in the SCEFL Premier Division, while reaching the first qualifying round of the FA Cup, prior to defeat at home to Isthmian Premier Division side, Carshalton Athletic.

It was 12th place for the Ton last season and we now go into 2023/24 eagerly awaiting the excitement ahead.
