have been changes to next Sunday's fixtures and referee appointments
across all Divisions. The updated fixture list for next Sunday is here.
FIXTURE CHANGES GENERALLY
We remind everyone that all fixtures are subject to alteration. At this
time of year especially, postponements will often cause changes at short
DO NOT ASSUME that just because it says here you won't have a game next
week or the week after that this will not change. Changes are normally
made to website fixture lists on a Monday, after clubs have been
notified by the fixtures secretary. So, PLAYERS, check with your club
that there isn't a change and CLUB OFFICIALS check with the Fixtures Secretary as and when required.

Dave Corbett has been in touch. He has lost contact with his former
team mates over the years. Anyone reading this or who knows someone from
this picture, Dave would like to hear from you. Email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
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!
CROWBOROUGH TOWN NEED GOALKEEPERS! YALDING & LADDINGFORD HIT BY INJURIES
Injuries are badly affecting both clubs! Crowborough Town,
particular, seek TWO goalkeepers, one for each team. Yalding have a long
injury list. If you are interested, details are here.
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
- 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.
YOU HAVE OLD KITS CLUTTERING UP THE PLACE?
This from Jon Hurst at Kent College in Tonbridge -

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!
