West Kent sides to make up a quarter of Southern Counties East Premier

Five clubs from West Kent will go head-to-head in this season’s Southern Counties East (SCEFL) Premier Division.

Corinthian, Larkfield & New Hythe, Rusthall, Snodland Town, and Tunbridge Wells will all represent the local area come Saturday 27th July, when the Premier Division kicks off! With just 20 teams in the league, it means we now have a quarter of all clubs representing West Kent.

And with Larkfield & New Hythe winning promotion via the playoffs last season, Greenways being relegated to the Kent County League, and K Sports moving to Sheppey United, there are no longer any West Kent teams in SCEFL Division One.

This is how the clubs line up for the start of the new Southern Counties East Football League campaign.

All local clubs will however, also have teams competing in the SCEFL Development League, albeit slightly different to last year after a vote was held at the AGM on June 10th to have two Divisions for the 2024/25 season.

The Development League West Constitution will contain Corinthian, Rusthall, and Tunbridge Wells, whilst the East Constitution see’s Larkfield & New Hythe go against their closest rivals Snodland Town.

There was also confirmation at the SCEFL AGM regarding the rules of the Challenge Cup for 2024/25. It will now see clubs compete in one-legged semi-final with extra-time being played in the final. Something that may be seen by clubs as good news, or not so good news, depending on how they went out last year.

• Obviously we would like to wish all the teams the best of luck for the new season, and wouldn’t it be nice to have all five of them competing for top spot come the end of the year! Good luck to all involved, we’ll be following your progress!
