District Players

The team has only had three main managers since its formation in the early 60's. Ron Cook (Westcourt primary school) managed the side to begin with, playing most of their games at Westcourt school. He was succeeded by Robin Devenish, who in a very successful spell won the Kent Primary Cup in successive years in the mid 70's. Robin left the area then, and was succeeded by Peter Hughes, who holds the post to the present day. Peter has been helped along the way by John Lyons, Jason Owen, and Mike Fotheringham. After Westcourt the team played at Shears Green and Riverview for a short time, but since 1985 has made Holy Trinity school its spiritual home. Ken Shand was our referee for home games for many years.
A squad of 25  make up the teams each year, drawn from trials held in mid-September. They participate in the Kent Primary Premiership,Kent Primary Championship, Kent Primary Cup,and Gills Shield. Over the years success has been achieved in most of these, but the highlight of all would be becoming the first Kent side to lift The Southern Counties Cup at Palmer Park, Reading in 1995. A late goal from Ben Stunt (Whitehill Junior) gave the team a 1-0 victory over Gloucester Primary Schools. The team also reached the final in 2010/11, losing a very close game 2-1 to St Albans Primary Schools.In 2013/14 we ran two teams for the first time.
