Kennington might be playing at a higher level next season - and they’ve been busy preparing.
A restructure of the non-league football pyramid will see over 100 clubs make a step up and Kennington, by virtue of their impressive form over the last two years, are set to be one of those.
Promotion will be awarded on the best points per game average over the past two years of disrupted football and Ton are the standout side, which means Southern Counties East, Premier Division football is almost certainly coming to Homelands.
Manager Dan Scorer has been busy getting things in place and has recruited Louis Plumridge as new first team coach, stepping up from his position of strength and conditioning coach.
The former army commando said: “The lads are so driven to better themselves and achieve as much as possible.
“When Dan asked me to get involved as the club’s first team coach, it didn’t take much thinking for me to say ‘yes’.
“Just like my day job, my role is optimising performance, whether that’s through strength and conditioning, nutrition protocols or mental performance work - it’s all integral to getting the end result the club and I are striving for.”
Mark Wallis has stepped down from the role due to work and family commitments.
Scorer thanked Wallis for his effort and commitment to the role and added: “We’ve been very fortunate to have had the support of Louis over the past three years, providing us with his knowledge of high performance conditioning, nutrition and mental performance. Louis is incredibly driven and shares my enthusiasm for achievement. I’m delighted to have him on board.”
