Football returns


Sevenoaks Town FC participates in many leagues, and due to the effects of COVID-19 which disrupted the football season back in November, most of these leagues have to be completely cancelled with the results voided. Sevenoaks Town aims to ensure that all teams can play some football during the time that remains in the 2020/21 season. Training has restarted, and STFC is hoping their teams can arrange some friendly matches in time for next season.


Continuing to follow the COVID rules and regulations is paramount to this return to football, and the safety of members is regarded over and above everything else. This is reflected in the amount of work the club has put in to ensure the facilities and venue are COVID safe, including a temperature monitor and automatic hand sanitiser upon entry into the ground, a one-way system and social distanced seating, as well as sanitising the equipment such as the goalposts and corner flags. STFC thanks Wetton Cleaning Services for all their work in helping to ensure a safe and sanitary environment.


It is great for players to be back and kicking a ball again, and next season should hopefully signify more of a return to normality for local football. Sevenoaks Town will hope to begin next season as normal in August, with home matches at Greatness Park.
