Kent Floodlight Cup 1973-74 - Gravesend & N played Bexley end of season Can't Post or Reply Privately

Kent Floodlight Cup 1973-74 I have an incomplete league table (WEST) which is missing the Gravesend & Northfleet game against Bexley Utd (but don't know who was at home). This was probably played near the end of the season. Can anyone help please? Thanks

For the 1973/74 season, the competition was the Kent Messenger Trophy. Gravesend were due to play Bexley on 13 November (H) and 27 November (A). Clearly neither game was played on those dates and both clubs were at the bottom of the Western Section.

KCFA insisted on all games being played however meaningless and I know of one game in the Eastern Section that was played on a Thursday night at the end of a season when virtually nobody turned up to watch. That may have been the case with this one.

Many thanks for your reply - The match may never have been played but I shall keep looking - just in case!The Miner's Strike didn't help floodlight football during 73-74 and the fans, and newspapers alike, lost a lot of interest as this competition lost more and more of its appeal over this and future seasons. Regards, Tony

Gravesend were due to play Bexley on the 13th.November, but had an F.A.Trophy replay against St.Neots Town. Everyone else played five games, but these two only played four.
