DECEMBER FIXTURES - PETTS WOOD OLD BOYS RESIGN

December fixtures are now on the website. Please start here.  Note that here will be no WKSFL fixtures on December 22nd.

Petts Wood Old Boys have resigned from the League. The necessary amendments to Division One and Senior Cup tables have been made.

RESULTS SUNDAY 17th NOVEMBER - CHANGES TO FIXTURES NEXT SUNDAY - NEWS REPORT - TOP GOALSCORERS

Most games took place.  All results are here. The news report is here and the updated top goalscorers list here.

There are a couple of confirmed changes to next Sunday's fixtures. Check yours here.

REMINDER - it's better if you can send in your goalscorers and clean sheet 'keepers with the message containing the scores.  Some teams are still not sending in their goalscorers. This information is vital for the end of season awards.

FC GRINSTEAD HAVE RESIGNED

In accordance with League rules, their matches played have been deleted from the records. Revised league and Senior Cup tables were included in Monday's update.

WEATHER RELATED MATCH POSTPONEMENTS - A REMINDER

Now that the rainy season has started, this is a reminder to club officials and others involved on match days of the procedures that MUST be followed if your home game is called off. In particular, those using Tunbridge Wells council pitches have a strict procedure. Please read this page. Your club risks fines and having to pay expenses if opponents and referees have wasted journeys. Two clubs have recently been fined and expenses added for failing to notify match officials of a postponement.

MAILING LIST AND PROBLEMS

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, also of the availability of the monthly fixture lists plus any ad-hoc updates that may occur through the season.

PROBLEM - btinternet.com has again decided that emails coming from my service provider are spam and has blocked my messages. There is nothing I can do about this. I am sending the weekly missive from an alternative address, but that does mean many of you will get it twice.

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!
