NEWCHANGE OF SECRETARY FC GRINSTEAD, TONBRIDGE SIX IN ONE WITHDRAW - DIV 1 FIXTURES MESSED UP

FC Grinstead have a change of Secretary- details on the club data handbook page. Tonbridge Six in One have announced their immediate withdrawal from the league. The adjusted Division One table is here. Their former players will not be available to register for other clubs until any debts etc have been cleared.

A error crept into to the grounds column for next week's  Division One games. I have put that right. Everyone is at their normal grounds, weather permitting.

ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING THE POST OF WKSFL GENERAL SECRETARY

It was confirmed at the Management  Committee Meeting on Monday that Angela Barham will have to stand down at the end of the season as General Secretary. She wishes to continue to serve on the MC and cover Cup Finals, Presentation Evening and other special events. We are all quite happy with this, and will propose Angela  as MC member at the AGM in June.

We now have to fill this most important position, ideally by somebody associated with a member Club. Anybody interested should contact me or Angela to discuss this matter.

Over the past 49 years we have been fortunate to have had only 5 people in the position of GS which is a clear indication of the calibre of the people  in all positions running your League. I hope there is someone out there  to take us into our 50th Season, and await your call.

Regards, Stuart Turner, Chairman.

OLD TEAM PICTURES

Dave Capp has kindly sent in two pictures of Rotherfield FC from the early 1980's. A trip down memory lane for those of you who may have played with them or against them. Can you recall the names? Have a look here. There are a few missing, but Mr Capp has sent in most of them.

POSTPONEMENTS - CLUB OFFICIALS - WHAT TO DO IF YOUR GAME IS OFF

Now that the winter has come, many matches will be called off every week. Here is a reminder of the procedure that MUST be followed if your game is called off by the council etc. There will be fines if your club does notify opposition, referees and Management Committee as required.

MAILTO: LINKS ON WEBSITE PAGES

It's been brought to my notice that clicking the direct email links may not work for those using webmail services rather than Outlook, Thunderbird etc especially on tablets and mobiles. I have not figured out how to deal with this, so any suggestions or better still fixes would be most appreciated!

AOL IS BLOCKING MY EMAILS AGAIN

As has been the case on and off for the last ten years! There is nothing I can do about this. AOL is blocking my emails as spam. If you wish to see my words of wisdom please let me have an alternative email address if you have one.

THIS SEASON'S GUIDANCE ON WHAT IS OR ISN'T OFFSIDE - AND MORE

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/33783861 - 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.

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.
