MMKSFL season set to restart early April

With grassroots football allowed to return from Monday, 29 March, the league has posted its opening weekend of fixtures of the restart, which feature all teams and will be on Sunday, 11 April 2021.


Kent Sands v Invicta Sunday will be the first game of the re-start, scheduled on Good Friday (the weekend before) due to fixture congestion, with all sides then starting on the following weekend. 


The remaining fixtures for the season will be posted on Monday, 22 March and will run every weekend until the end of June. Teams are reminded that no team football (training or matches) should be played before restrictions are lifted by the Government and Football Association. 

MMKSFL Clubs Vote to Extend Season
The result of the SGM vote to continue the league until the end of June 2021 was a carried by a large majority this week as results were published to clubs on Friday evening.

This means that subject to all restrictions being unlocked by the government in line with the estimated timelines forecast the MMKSFL season will resume on Good Friday with a single fixture, then a full weekend of fixtures on Sunday, 11 April 2021. The season will then continue until the end of June.

Keep an eye on the social media account and website, as the first set of fixtures will be released on Monday, 15 March 2020 and there is some more good news for the league on the horizon.

We ask all teams to remember that you shouldn't be participating in any team football activity until Monday, 29 March at the earliest. We're also expecting updates from the Kent FA and National FA on the current Covid-19 guidelines..
