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.
