WEBSITE PROBLEMS
Reports of any website problems (for example missing pages, broken links or wrong information) should be emailed to webmaster@wksl.org.uk
and not to Management Committee members.

PRE SEASON CLUBS MEETING

The Pre-season clubs meeting will be this Thursday, 25th August, at High Brooms Club, starting at 8pm. All clubs must be represented.

SEPTEMBER FIXTURES

All September fixtures are on the website, please start here. Referee appointments have now been added.

REFEREE'S MATCH REPORT FORM UPDATED

I have made a better scan of this important form, which are now available as PDF files via the forms index. Thanks to Gareth Downs, who has made the two part form into a single PDF document which you can download, print and use as required.

CHARITY SHIELD CANCELLED

The League regrets that the annual Charity Shield match cannot be held this year. No suitable venue can be found.

HANDBOOK - LEAGUE RULES - CLUB DATA

The updated League rules are now available in the Handbook. The only changes from last season are in Rule 10(F)ii concerning the playing of a reserve team fixture in preference to a first team game and to Rule 13(E) clarifying the match fees and expenses payable to Match Officials particularly for Double Headers.

Club data - updated versions are now available in WORD and PDF formats. Links to maps showing ground locations have now been added.

The updated version of Referee's data is now included. All I waiting for now is the updated 'Important Dates' list

PRE SEASON PAGE IS STILL THERE!

I forgot to renew the link from this page. Pre-season page is always here.

PLAYER ADVERTS

There are a number of new adverts on the club adverts page from players new to the area looking for  club to play for.

CHANGES TO THE LAWS OF FOOTBALL

I have updated the link to the revised Laws of the Game to take you to the FIFA website. There are a number of fundamental changes with which you must all be familiar before the new pre-season. This includes this little gem, Law 11, offside, paragraph 4 which read "If an offside offence occurs, the referee awards an indirect free kick where the offence occurred, including if it is in the player’s own half of the field of play" which means that you can no longer say 'in me own half, ref!' as from now on,  if you come back into your half from an offside position and interfere with play etc the free kick is given from where you did it, not from where you were when the ball was kicked. So when does the assistant ref flag, especially if the player has run 25 or 30 yards into his own half? Have fun!

PLAYER DEBTS

If a player has left your club owing money and won't pay it back, please read this.

Important

ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING THE POST OF WKSFL GENERAL SECRETARY

Angela Barham has agreed to stay on as League General Secretary for the new season. However, the league would be very interested to hear from anyone willing and able to take on this vitally important role.

Over the past 49 years we have been fortunate to have had only five people in the position of General Secretary, which is a clear indication of the calibre of the people  in all positions running your League. I hope there is someone out there  to take us into our 50th Season, and await your call.

Regards, Stuart Turner, Chairman.

CROWBOROUGH TOWN 1991 AND 1999

Mike Noble has kindly sent in two pictures of Crowborough Town from their early days. All the names are known, you might remember a few of them and may know what they are doing with themselves now. Take a look here. A new window will open.

MAILTO: LINKS ON WEBSITE PAGES

It's been brought to my notice that clicking the direct email links may not work for those using webmail services rather than Outlook, Thunderbird etc especially on tablets and mobiles. I have not figured out how to deal with this, so any suggestions or better still fixes would be most appreciated!

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!

MAILING LIST

For the benefit of new secretaries and new people generally, I keep a mailing list through which all subscribers are notified of website updates. All contact email addresses supplied to the league are included automatically. 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.
