RESULTS SUNDAY 16th NOVEMBER - CHANGES TO FIXTURES NEXT SUNDAY
Half of the scheduled matches were postponed because of rain. Results here, for updated League tables etc please start here. The top goalscorers page
has been updated - the only changes are in Division Five, where Chris
Martin of East Grinstead Mavericks scored all four in their win at Green
St Blues Reserves and now stands as the overall top goalscorer in WKSFL
League and Cup matches with eighteen.
Update : The Hadlow Hornets v Blackham & Ashurst Intermediate Cup Round 1 match will also be played next Sunday.
Postponed Kent County Cup ties will be played next Sunday. This has
required some changes to WKSFL League and League Cup fixtures. For
updated fixtures please click here. Clubs have been informed directly.
Those of you with a long association with the League will be
sorry to hear that Albert Seymour passed away recently. He was a long
time with Rawson's Trucks FC and also served as a referee after his
playing days before moving to Spain in retirement.
Tony Vanns Registration Secretary of the
League makes a special presentation to Referee Paul Beadle in
recognition of his service to the league as Council Member and Referees
Secretary 2008-2014. We wish Paul well and hope he will continue to
referee in the League.

REMINDER DECEMBER FIXTURES
December 21st - there will be NO WKSFL fixtures scheduled.
MATCH POSTPONED - PROCEDURE
Now that it has started to rain, many matches will now be called off over the coming months. Here is a reminder
to all clubs on the procedure that MUST be followed when your local
council declares the pitch unusable. Failure to observe these procedures
will result in your club being fined and possibly having to meet costs
for wasted journeys.
Still more instances are
cropping up of players being signed on using emergency
forms without anyone checking whether he is already
registered for another club. Don't take their word for
it! Also, it is irrelevant that he may never have played
for another club.
So if you are asking someone to come down on a Sunday
morning and sign on, CHECK THE
REGISTERED PLAYERS LIST
which is normally updated
every Saturday morning. This will take but a minute.
Bookmark the file on your smartphones or tablets.
If he is already listed, he CANNOT register for another
club until the existing registration is cancelled by
that club or a transfer form is properly completed. All
this must be done before pen is put to paper.
This is costing clubs fines and points. Players may also
be fined and / or suspended if they knowingly sign for a
club when already registered for another.
And to repeat part of the previous message :
Emergency Registrations are not just for the one game.
Any player so registered is considered as a registered
player for that club until the registration is either
cancelled or he officially transfers to another club.
CHANGE TO TRANSFER PROCEDURE
A new registration form is no longer required when a
player transfers between clubs. The transfer form has been
changed to reflect the current requirement. However, all
concerned please make sure that the transfer form is
correctly and fully completed.
CLUBS SEEKING PLAYERS
If you are a player looking for a regular game or are
new to the area and want to play on a Sunday morning,
several clubs across the divisions are needing players.
Please go to the club
adverts page for details.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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!
