Welcome to the Kent Schools Knockout Competition for 2019
Update 21st September 2019
KHA – Boys U14/16/18 Schools Knockout Competition – update 21/9/18
Good morning all,
Herewith is the update for the boys County Knockout Competition. Apologies for delay but we were waiting for the recent KHA schools meeting and getting our heads round the recent EHA new framework.
Clarification I have sought from the South:
It is my understanding that registration for the U18 Boys Tier 1 closed some time ago and schools have been advised which of 3 leagues they have been allocated to.
EHB advises that Schools should self-select the tiers which they wish to enter!
South Junior Management agreed to hold U16 and U18 BOYS county and regional competitions for 2018/19 as there appears to be interest from schools to do so.
U14 BOYS is no change for – County, regional and national finals – there are other tiered competitions for emerging schools – however, there will be few lower tier competitions in this inaugural season.
To that end we will hold our usual competition as before with the finals day to be held at Tonbridge School on Wednesday 13th February (Provisional) and Regional rounds as below:
The South dates, if required, are:
February 28th BU18 Pools
March 5th BU14 pools
March 7th Boys U16 Pools
March 12 BU18 QF nominated date
March 15th BU16 QF nominated date
March 18th QF play by date for U14, U16 and U18
March 20th Bu18 & U16 South finals
March 21st BU14 finals
Similar rules as per last year with a player can only play for one side, i.e. an U14 can’t play for U14 and U16s i.e. a player cannot play for more than one age group. The entry fee based on previous years and numbers will be around £25.00 per team. Clarification of Tiers as this competition has 3 age groups – U18s are Tier 4, U16s are Tier 3 and U14s are Tier 2, no school can enter a side in 2 tiers.
The KHA website has an entry from for this year’s competition. Cut off date for entry is 19th October and hopefully draws etc will be made and out to participating schools by the end of October.
As the new academic term is around the corner I am beginning to plan for the competition for 2019. As you may be aware EH have been reviewing competitions and the South and Kent are awaiting for further guidance as to where we stand.
The initial discussion with the South is that we see little change if any at all and we will probably proceed as in previous years.
