Kent School Football Association
This collection celebrates the history of the Kent Schools Football Association mainly documented in programmes, photos and handbooks.
The Kent Schools’ Football Association is the county governing body for schools’ football (covering the County of Kent, Medway, Bexley and Bromley), as well as a registered educational charity. It came into being in 1921 as the Kent Schools’ Football Federation. In the first season nineteen member associations competed for the Fletcher Trophy, which had been deposited with the Midland Bank in Folkestone by the United States Army at the beginning of World War I, and not reclaimed.
Throughout its history, the County has been fortunate to have at its helm dedicated school teachers to create an organisation second to none in its reputation for all that is best in schools’ football, both on and off the field of play.
