Simon Lewington

Playfield Liason

My name is Simon Lewington and I currently manage the Kennington Athletic U14 team. I played football for over 20 years and have lived in Kennington since 1997. When my son decided he wanted to play, Kennington Athletic was the obvious choice and I decided to become involved. I coached the team for three years from U6 to U8 and then took over as Manager in 2012.

Geoff Hitchen

Under 13 Girls Manager

I have been been involved with football in Kennington for many years. I played as a youngster from the age of 9, until I finally hung up my playing boots for the mens team at the age of 37. I then managed a successful Kennington Boys team before taking a break. I am now really pleased to be bringing girls football back to Kennington and hope to add momentum to the emerging girls game.
