MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE MEETING DECISIONS

matches and matches affected by player registration issues. The full
list can be seen here. League tables in Divisions One and Four were adjusted last Friday.
MATCH FORMS - PLAYERS NAMES
There have been several instances of names on match forms not being
legible or a player's name being incorrectly spelled. This causes the
Registration Secretary extra work and may result in fines for clubs. Can
all concerned please make sure that the name that goes on the forms is
the same as went on the original registration form and that it is
REFEREE ROD JONES MOBILE NUMBER
This was incorrect in the handbook, now updated. It is 07771 702370
HELP WITH PITCH MARKING
Speldhurst Rangers are urgently needing
help to get their pitch remarked. If anyone can assist or provide the
name of someone who can , please contact Ollie Crees, secretary. Contact

WEBSITE CHANGES - NEW ADVERTISERS
There will be a few changes to website pages as we renew our advertising
for the season. Bear with us if anything strange happens! Our
advertisers support us, covering the cost of running the website for example, so we ask you to support them in turn.
PLAYER REGISTRATION LISTS 2015 - 2016
LOOK ACROSS TO THE RIGHT!! IF YOU ARE
SIGNING PLAYERS USING NORMAL OR ON EMERGENCY FORMS CHECK FIRST THAT
THEY ARE NOT ALREADY REGISTERED . IF THERE IS THE SLIGHTEST DOUBT CHECK
WITH THE REGISTRATIONS SECRETARY.
THIS SEASON'S GUIDANCE ON WHAT IS OR ISN'T OFFSIDE - AND MORE
- in brief, a player 'clearly attempting to play the ball' while in an
offside position is to be flagged offside. In previous seasons, on TV at
least, he would not be given offside because he hadn't touched the
ball. I am sure all you club assistant referees will be poised to judge
whether the other side's lumbering striker's perfunctory wave of a leg
constitutes a clear attempt to play the ball. Have fun.
UPDATE TO OUR OLD PICTURES PAGE
Ollie Crees has kindly sent two pictures of very old Speldhurst
Rangers teams, one from 1949-50 and another from 1957. You can see them here.
If any memories are stirred, please let me have them. My guess is that many of those pictured will have passed on.

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 email@example.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!
