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.
PLAYER DEBT RECOVERY
If a player owes your club money, start chasing him NOW! It will be
too late if you wait until he has signed for another club next season.

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!
