4/11/2016: BCS resign from Kent league

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…
