WKSFL FIFTIETH ANNIVERSARY - A SPECIAL CELEBRATION
Season 2016-17 will be the 50th Anniversary of the West Kent Sunday
Football League, founded in 1967. Original Chairman, Reg Mackelden and
League Secretary, Stuart Turner, are still actively involved.
To mark this special occasion a dinner is being planned. The Great
Barn, at the High Rocks Hotel, Tunbridge Wells, has been booked for
Friday 2nd June 2017. The League is now looking for a Major Sponsor to
join forces with the League to ensure the success of this special event.
Any individual or Company who may be interested in further details to
include possible benefit to them or their Company, should in the
first instance contact the Chairman, Stuart Turner or Management
Committee Member Mike Noble - contact details are here.
WKSFL INDIVIDUAL TROPHIES
The League will, as in previous seasons, provide individually
engraved player trophies to winners and runners-up in WKSFL Leagues and
Cups. Eighteen will be provided for Divisional winners and runners-up,
sixteen (ie your match day squad)
for Cup winners and runners up. Any additional trophies you require
must be paid for. All clubs that have won or who are likely to win a
trophy have now been sent a letter setting out the procedure for sending
the list of names to us. All League winners and runners up
trophies will be given out at the Presentation night on 3rd June and
will NOT be available beforehand. Cup trophies will be presented after
the match, engraved nameplates will follow.
CROWBOROUGH TOWN 1991 AND 1999
Mike Noble has kindly sent in two pictures of Crowborough Town from
their early days. All the names are known, you might remember a few of
them and may know what they are doing with themselves now. Take a look here. A new window will open.
BT INTERNET IS BLOCKING MY EMAILS
BT Internet.com is suddenly blocking emails from one of my accounts as
spam - not just those on WKSFL business. I am therefore using a
different account but please ensure emails from @wksl.org.uk are not in your spam or junk folders.
PLAYER WANTING TO START AGAIN
Tonbridge area, maybe for any friendlies towards the close of the
season and for next season. Ideally Tonbridge area. Details at the top
of the adverts page.
ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING THE POST OF WKSFL GENERAL SECRETARY
It was confirmed at the recent Management Committee Meeting 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 five
people in the position of General Secretary, 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
Regards, Stuart Turner, Chairman.
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!
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.

School in Tonbridge, is involved with a scheme to
donate football equipment to kids in the Phillipines.

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!
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
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.
