KENT INVICTA LEAGUE
Saturday April 25
Eltham Palace v Hollands & Blair
Gravesham Borough v Orpington
Kent Football United v Bearsted
Meridian VP v Crockenhill
Rusthall v Glebe
Seven Acre & Sidcup v Bridon Ropes
Sheppey United v Lydd Town
Sutton Athletic v Lewisham Borough
While Hollands & Blair have already been crowned KIL Champions for 2014-15 the fight for second, third and fourth goes into the last day of the season with a number of possibilities still open. Lydd Town, who travel to Sheppey United, will finish as runners-up as long as they don't lose due to their better goal difference. Should they suffer a defeat then Bearsted can move up and clinch second spot presuming they take all three points at Kent Football United. But Sutton Athletic can still finish third if they beat bottom of the table Lewisham Borough at the London Hire Stadium and the Bears drop points. For the record Lydd, Bearsted and Sutton have already triumphed over this weekend's opponents.
Sheppey will complete their first KIL season in a very respectable fifth place but now have a vastly improved ground due to a lot of hard work at Holm Park. Since August the ground has been fully enclosed, floodlights installed and two stands constructed.
Seven Acre & Sidcup complete their first season at their new home with Bridon Ropes the visitors to SC Thamesmead. When these two teams met in SE7 last month Lee Hill's side edged it through Anthony Collins goal.
Down at Jockey Farm Rusthall host Glebe, when these to met at Oakley Road back in January James Pinnock led the way with a hat-trick as Glebe were 6-0 victors while at Rede Court Road Gravesham Borough host Byron Beard's Orpington. Way back in August both teams took a point at Green Court Road following a 1-1 draw.
That was the same result when Meridian VP travelled to Crockenhill in October, but Richard Dimmock's team will be hoping to finish the campaign strongly in the return at Charlton Park Lane.
Blair's last game at Step 6 prior promotion to the Southern Counties East Football League takes them to Oxford Road where they face Eltham Palace. This will be their third meeting of the campaign although this is the first under the new management set-up of Palace. In those two earlier meetings Blair won 3-2 in the league (October) and 6-1 in the Kent Senior Trophy December).
Orpington FC are looking for first team players to play in the Kent Invicta League side for season 2015-16. Anyone interested should contact the First team manager, Byron Beard, at

A project by The FA National Game Youth Council
We’re collecting good luck messages from 5-24 years olds from across the country and presenting them to the England Women’s football team on a giant St. George’s flag shortly before they leave for
Canada to participate in the FIFA 2015 Women’s World Cup.
Who are we?
The FA National Game Youth Council is a group of talented and passionate young people who aim to provide a voice for all children and young people within football. Reporting directly into the Football Development Committee, we are able to influence change and develop a lasting legacy within the game.
What is Good Luck from Young People?
After running a successful project delivering hundreds of good luck messages to the England senior men’s team before the FIFA 2014 World Cup, we are excited to give young people the opportunity to wish our Lionesses good luck in Canada!
Young people aged between 5-24, can submit short messages either on twitter by using the hashtag #GLFYP or by using the following link:
These messages will be collated and printed onto a huge St. George’s flag and presented to the team just before they leave for the World Cup.
Young people will be able to submit messages between 30th March 2015 and 17th April 2015. We will also be giving away some amazing prizes from The FA throughout this period to young people that submit a message.
