2021 Kentish Cup postponed

The competition between the UK Armed Forces, French forces and Dutch forces was scheduled for next month but is now off.

The 2021 Kentish Cup has been postponed after the Dutch forces pulled out of the competition.

This is the second consecutive year that the event has been called off after it fell victim to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.

The opening match between UKAF and the French forces was scheduled to kick off on 28 November and was set to be broadcast live on the Forces News Facebook page.

The three-game tournament was being hosted by Havant & Waterlooville FC.

It is hoped that the competition can be rescheduled for summer 2022 and UKAF are currently in the process of arranging a replacement fixture for winter 2021.
