It has been a significant year for the association with the restart and completion of an entire season for the first time in two years. Kent football has bounced back superbly from the challenges of the pandemic, and credit must go to the club and league officials who have worked tirelessly to ensure that football has continued to thrive.
It gives us great pleasure to share our End of Season Review for 2021/22, completing the first year of our three-year strategy, Play, Protect, Promote, which details the fantastic work that has taken place across Kent.

Darryl Haden, Kent FA CEO, said: "It has been a pleasure to work with our Board, council, colleagues and stakeholders over the last year to restart football, grow participation, enhance safeguarding standards, improve pitches and facilities and support volunteers in football throughout the county. I am proud to celebrate all that we have been able to achieve together. We would also like to thank our Digital Media Partner, Sleeping Giant Media, who helped us bring the strategy and end-of-season review to life through video. We are so grateful for your continued support."
The work doesn't stop there. We are passionate about the grassroots game in Kent and believe that football should be accessible to everyone in every capacity, whether playing, coaching, refereeing, or volunteering. As we head into the 2022/23 season, we will continue to drive this strategy forward.
