There are two KIL games on Good Friday and leaders Hollands & Blair will be hoping to extend their lead at the top of the table when they
play Meridian VP at Charlton Park Lane. Last time out Meridian picked up a useful point from a see-saw battle that finally ended in a 3-3 draw at
Sutton Athletic where Joshua Bonnett completed his hat-trick with a last minute equaliser. When the two sides met at Star Meadow back in late August Blair won 3-1 as Tom Staff and Nick Smith (2)
Jay Garrick grabbing an 89th minute consolation.
The other game see's Seven Acre & Sidcup entertaining Crockenhill at Oxford Road. Back in September it was visitors Seven Acre that took the points following a 2-0 victory at Wested Meadow where Olu Bolte and Steve Weatherley were the scorers.
Both of these games kick-off at 3.00pm.
Lee Richmond's Fleet Leisure are the first team through to this
season's KIL Challenge Trophy Final after beating Lewisham Borough 5-0 at Rede Court Road to
secure a comprehensive 9-3 aggregate victory.
It was all over bar the shouting by half-time after Colin Richmond, Jason Sowle and James Trueman had all netted while Sowle and George Goodwin completed the scoring after the break.
Having plied their trade at Oxford Road for the past three year Seven Acre & Sidcup FC have this week announced that they are to
leave Sidcup having agreed a three-year groundshare at Thamesmead Town.
However both their youth and veteran sides will continue to use the former home of Cray Wanderers as will league rivals Eltham Palace.
Speaking to the Kentish Football website club owner, secretary and first team manager Lee Hill said
“Alongside our current home ground at Oxford Road, this shows the ambition and commitment by the club and its executive committee to move the club to the next level of the football pyramid.
“The club will now have the opportunity to enter the FA Vase and the FA Youth Cup and other premier cup competitions for both adults and youths.”
Seven Acre are no strangers at the Ryman Premier League sides Bayliss Avenue home having previously hired the 3G facilities for reserve and under 21 fixtures on the artificial pitch at the venue.

A 72nd minute Josh Froggatt effort divided the sides as Glebe beat Meridian VP
1-0 at Oakley Road. The result lifted the home side up to seventh in the table.
In the other game at Old Road Kent Football United came from two goals down at the break to share the points with Sutton Athletic from a 2-2 draw. Jack Howlett and Chris McGinty put James Collins team two up with 28 minutes on the clock before Elliot Blake pulled one back for KFU who snatched an 88th minute equaliser through Blessing Adesina.
