The Kent Senior Cup is an English football competition played between senior clubs in the county of Kent. It is administered by the Kent County Football Association.

History

The Kent Badge preceded the Kent Senior Cup, and was won in its three-year history by Chatham. This competition was replaced by the Kent Senior Cup in 1889. Between 1894 and 1897 the cup was awarded to the Kent League champions.

Past winners of the Kent Senior Cup include Royal Arsenal (now Arsenal) in 1889–90, and Gillingham in 1945–46 and 1947–48; the two sides are now members of the Premier League and Football League respectively. The 2013-14 Kent Senior Cup marked the 125th anniversary year of the competition, with the first match having been played in 1889. The final was played at Priestfield Stadium, home of Gillingham, on 5 May 2014 and was won by Ebbsfleet United, beating Dover Athletic 4-0.[1] Just days later, Dover Athletic would beat Ebbsfleet United 1-0 in the Conference South playoff final to win promotion to the Conference Premier.[2]

Charlton Athletic beat Gillingham 1-0 at Priestfield Stadium on 30 April 2015 in the 2014-15 final.

Dartford beat Charlton Athletic 3-1 at Princes Park on 26 April 2016 in the 2015-16 final.

Dover Athletic beat Welling United 2-0 at Gallagher Stadium on 1 May 2017 in the 2016-17 final.
