The Kent Invicta Football League was a football league in England, formed in 2011 to commence operations for the 2011–12 season.[1] It covered the traditional English county of Kent, some of which is now in Greater London. It merged with the Southern Counties East League in 2016, forming its lower division.

Formation[edit]

Negotiations to form a new Step 6 (level 10 in the overall English football league system) division began in 2009 to make promotion and relegation between the Kent League (Step 5, now Southern Counties East Football League) and Kent County League (Step 7) easier, as there had not been a relegation to the Kent County League for a number of seasons and promotions had been infrequent.

At the end of the 2015–16 season, the league merged with the Southern Counties East League and became the lower division of the merged league.[2]

Challenge Trophy[edit]

The league also organised a knockout competition, the Challenge Trophy.
