Sevenoaks League to be decided on final weekend – we’ve got all you need to know

The Sevenoaks & District Football League (S&DFL) are on the brink of accomplishing something that the majority of leagues have failed to do this season. Not only will they complete the league campaign in full, they will do it without having to rely on a points-per-game mechanism.

Whilst many sporting leagues around the country have been quiet since the end of October 2020, the S&DFL put together a plan to ensure that they could complete their season, and with just one weekend left we bring you all the relevant permutations on who’s Champions and who’s going up and down!

The Premier Division is very tight and will be decided between Nomads (1) and FC Revo (2). Nomads hold the upper hand with a one point lead as they face St Lawrence (4) – the 2019/20 Champions – at home, whilst FC Revo will host Halls AFC Reserves (8), who are in a relegation battle themselves along with Hawkenbury (9) and Kemsing United (10).

Fixtures on Saturday 29th May
FC Revo v Halls AFC Reserves
Nomads Association v St Lawrence
Potters v Hawkenbury
Southborough v Kemsing United
West Kingsdown v Blackham And Ashurst Saracens

Division One has already found it’s Champions for the year, that award goes to Malgo (1) who are joined by Westerham (2) in the other promotion spot. Leigh (7), Fleetdown United (8) and Seal (9) will battle it out for the last relegation place after Hildenborough Athletic Reserves (10) have already sealed their fate.

Fixtures on Saturday 29th May
Ightham v Eynsford
Malgo v Fleetdown United A
Seal v Swanley Oaks
Westerham v Leigh

Penshurst Park (1) were crowned Champions of Division Two a few weeks ago and up until that point of the season the difference between second place and eight place was just a couple of points. The league has now split in two though and Larkfield & New Hythe Wanderers Reserves (2) will host Ide Hill 3rd (7) looking for the other promotion place, Ide Hill looking to stay clear of relegation. Rusthall Development (3) entertain Roselands (5) for the rights to promotion whilst Pembury (6) face Kings Hill Reserves (8) knowing that a draw may not be enough.

Fixtures on Saturday 29th May
Larkfield And New Hythe Wanderers Reserves v Ide Hill 3rd
Pembury v Kings Hill Reserves
Penshurst Park v Roselands
Rusthall Development v Dartford Celtic Reserves

Green St Green Rovers were finally crowned Division Four Champions this week. Which leaves just the other promotion spot between West Farleigh Reserves (2), Kemsing United Reserves (4) and West Kingsdown Reserves (5) albeit the latter will be needing some considerable goal difference in their final two games. West Farleigh Reserves can secure it with a win away at the champions. Kings Hill Development (8) and Tatsfield Rovers (9) still have a couple of games in hand, but should TJFC Seniors (7) win away at Kemsing then they will both be relegated.

Fixtures on Saturday 29th May
Kings Hill Development v Tatsfield Rovers
Five Oak Green v West Kingsdown Reserves
Green St Green Rovers v West Farleigh Reserves
Kemsing United Reserves v TJFC Seniors

In the bottom, but by no means easiest league, AFC Green Court (1) have already taken one of the two promotion spots in Division Four, with the other to be decided between Southborough Reserves (2) and St Lawrence Reserves (3). However, Southborough travel to Green Court knowing that a win will also give them the title. With no relegation for the sides at the bottom of the table, it’s simply a pride thing as Dartford Celtic 3rd (8) meet Ide Hill 4th (9) for a last ditch double-header.

Fixtures on Saturday 29th May
AFC Green Court v Southborough Reserves
Dartford Celtic 3rd v Ide Hill 4th
Ide Hill 4th v Dartford Celtic 3rd
St Lawrence Reserves v Cudham United
Westerham Reserves v Swanley
