During these most difficult of times, we know lots of our clubs, coaches and volunteers are looking ahead to plan in a positive manner for when football eventually resumes. The League remains active in supporting the return to football whenever that should be.
As part of this, our new online application form is now live. We accept that trials and even meeting up with players is a long way away. However, we urge you to complete the application forms and return to us at this stage with NO MONEY as we want to get an idea of clubs intentions for next season.
We also understand the huge economic impact of this virus and the heartache for many at this time who have seen their businesses fold, or who have been furloughed by their employers including many staff at the Kent FA. That is why we will insist on no monies being paid at this stage.
I will end by ensuring you all that the League will be here to support the return to football whenever that may be and to hope that you can understand the decision we have taken – we can never please everyone in anything that we do, but surviving the next few months both financially, mentally, and healthily is just too important for us all.
