LAWS OF THE GAME 2019 / 2020 - NUMEROUS CHANGES TO BE AWARE OF!

I have updated the link over to the right to refer to the International Football Board website version of the Laws of the Game. There is useful summary of the various changes, including explanations when handball does not have to be intentional, published by the Referee's Association here. Will football at the top level now have the equivalent of cricket's 'ultra edge' to determine whether the ball brushed a sleeve on its way into goal?

Here's a ruling that will sorely test many of you - "...a player in an offside position is moving towards the ball with the intention of playing the ball and is fouled before playing or attempting to play the ball, or challenging an opponent for the ball, the foul is penalised as it has occurred before the offside offence".

You may discuss the implications at length.

WKSFL HANDBOOK - CLUB INFORMATION

The 2019 - 2020 version of the club information data is now available as a WORD document here and as a PDF document here. There are still one or two bits of information to be confirmed. Clubs please note that Brenchley will be playing their home games at Horsmonden this season. Any mistakes in the website version of the club data are probably my fault. If something isn't right with your club's entry please email me first.

CHANGE OF DATE PRE SEASON MEETING

Would all concerned please note that the pre-season clubs meeting has had to be changed to THURSDAY 22 AUGUST. Same venue, Six in One Club.

MAILING LIST

For the benefit of club secretaries and others, I keep a mailing list through which all subscribers are notified of website updates.  If you wish your email address to be added, please email me. All messages from me will have WKSL WEBSITE UPDATE in the title. I recommend that you include this information in your 'whitelist' or whatever, as some spam filters have a habit of dumping my well-intentioned emails in the dustbin.

You will be notified of results and updated league tables (normally) every Monday morning, the monthly fixture lists plus any ad-hoc updates that may occur through the season.

 IMPORTANTDO ANY OF YOUR PLAYERS OWE THE CLUB MONEY? PLAYER DEBT RECOVERY - PROBABLY LAST CHANCE!

NOW is the time to start chasing players who owe your club money. It will be too late by the time they have signed for someone else for next season.

This MUST be done in writing, not a phone call, email or text message but IN WRITING. In serious cases send the letter by recorded delivery and add the cost of that to what they owe.

The letter must state exactly how much the player owes and give a deadline for payment (14 days is suggested) and to whom payment is to be made.

The letter must be copied to the General Secretary West Kent Sunday League and to the relevant County FA. If you know they play for another club on Saturdays, copy the letter to them also.

If they do not pay, you can ask the County to use their Debt Recovery Scheme. This not only adds £25 costs to whatever they owe, but can also result in their suspension sine die until the debt is cleared.

GIVE YOUR OLD KITS TO PEOPLE WHO NEED THEM

Here is what can be done rather than chucking them out! Ian Trim, who plays for Artois United, used the item below to make contact and have an old kit sent out to Malawi. So if you have old kits, don't hesitate to put them to good use. Five pictures below, click to see larger size.

DO YOU HAVE OLD KITS CLUTTERING UP THE PLACE?

This from Jon Hurst at Kent College in Tonbridge -

...writing on behalf of a work colleague who supports younger people in Malawi through charity work: www.malawiyouthdream.org,  for the donation of old kits that are no longer required by clubs.'

Clubs interested in doing this can go direct to the website above (hit ‘contact us’), or contact Karen Kamundi on 01622 200258 for more details.

Another option The Lighthouse Project, based at Longmead Primary School in Tonbridge, is involved with a scheme to donate football equipment to kids in the Phillipines. Take a look at this YouTube video clip - http://youtu.be/e81AnjPWcVE

If you can offer anything or a small donation, get in touch with Simeone Honore by email.

SECOND EDITION OF THE WEST KENT SUNDAY LEAGUE HISTORY IN PLANNING.

Andrew Newman is thinking in advance of a new edition of the WKSFL history, which was a sellout when it was published in 2007. This might be a 60th Anniversary edition, in 2027!!

Andrew is wishing to get hold of copies of photos from 2007 - 2008 onwards and into future seasons, particularly of winning teams with their trophies. Any other photos of interest would be welcomed. Send them by email if you can to courierfootball@btinternet.com or contact Andrew at that address if there are pictures you can't send that way. Andrew may also be interested in videos, but please speak with him first. By the time it comes to season 2026/2027 no doubt 3D holograms will be sought after!
