REFEREE MICK SYRETT PHONE NUMBER

This was incorrect on our website page. Please make sure you have the correct one, which is 07398 490165.

IMPORTANT - YOU MUST READ - TIME FOR CHANGE  - LETTER TO ALL CLUBS FROM THE KENT COUNTY FA.

The Kent County FA have issued an open letter to the Football Community to address the current situation where there are almost 24% fewer referees registered than at this time last season. Assaults and abuse are taking their toll. Some of you have already had to provide your own referees and this will continue on a frequent basis unless behaviour towards referees is changed. You can read the full letter here. I have taken one paragraph (below) as an example to show the tone of the message being delivered. We suggest that you make this known to your club members.

CLUB MATCH REPORT FORM

We have changed the club match report form to make things easier and quicker for all concerned. Please DO NOT USE any previous version.

Clubs can now complete and save a proforma with all players names and email addresses (required by the rules) and simply tick who started and who were substitutes used. The form can then be saved and emailed to Tony Vanns each week. That way you also have the record. You can download the new form here.

GIVE YOUR OLD KITS TO PEOPLE WHO NEED THEM

Two of Insulator's old kits are now being used in Gambia by Keteh Jombal FC and Serridema FC. See below!

KCFA INSURANCE CLAIMS

It seems that clubs are either submitting injury claims late or not at all. Information can be found at :- https://www.kentfafoundation.co.uk/how-to-apply/injured-player-fund/ and  http://www.kentfa.com/players/player-support/insurance

Clubs affiliated to other County Associations should check the relevant websites.

TEAM PHOTOS WANTED

One of the newspapers who prints our reports has asked if we can send them a team photo or two. If you are able to take a simple team photo before your game, please send it to me. Email webmaster@wksl.org.uk

MAILING LIST REMINDER

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) around 10.00am every Monday morning, also of the availability of the monthly fixture lists plus any ad-hoc updates that may occur through the season.

We like to have the small cost of running the website paid through advertising by local businesses We currently have space for small adverts on several pages. If you are interested, please contact Chairman Stuart Turner.

Here is another example of 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.

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!
