A NEW football club is claiming to be the first “gay friendly” club in Kent and south east London.

Bexley Invicta FC has already held its first kickabout in Danson Park, Welling, and has more planned, together with five-a-side sessions at Goals in Bexleyheath.

It also hopes to start training sessions soon and has already got its first fixture , a friendly with GFC Bournemouth in March.

Member Brian Silk from Erith said a number of those who turned out for the kickabout had got out of the habit of playing and others were pleased to find a gay friendly club near to home.

The club also has a social side which is open to non-players.

Membership is open to anyone regardless of sexual orientation, ability or experience.
