BayCity Strollers’ players have voted overwhelmingly to leave the Kent Walking Football League with immediate effect. We had hoped that some of the problems encountered in the league last year would have been resolved by now, but this is clearly not the case. Too many league games have been played with a win-at-all-costs approach which goes completely against the BCS ethos. We set out to have fun playing the game we love in a competitive manner, not to attempt to recreate our youth and look for glory and trophies. The Strollers will continue to train and play on Monday evenings, and to play friendlies and friendly tournaments against clubs with a similar approach.
