PROBLEMS IN SENDING EMAIL TO @btinternet.com ADDRESSES
It appears that BT Internet.com has decided that my
email provider has a 'bad reputation' (for spam) and is
blocking all messages from me to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I doubt there is any point in you telling them I am of
good character. I will therefore use a different email
sender for my 'round robin' update messages. This might
take a day or two to sort out.
FC HAYWARD HAVE UN-RESIGNED FROM THE LEAGUE
Division Five will therefore be back to twelve teams.
The team will be known as KW Hayward FC and is
effectively a merger between those remaining members of
last season's King William and Flying Dutchman sides. I
will update all the relevant pages here as soon as I
FA SUNDAY CUP 2014 - 2015

application for FA Competitions 2014-15 is Friday 1
All member clubs should have received an email about
this from the General Secretary. If you have not and are
interested, contact Angela Barham without delay.
PRE SEASON PAGE - MANY UPDATES
Thanks to all of you who sent information for the pre season page. I am having
problems sending email from my present location (strange
as it was working ) so may I thank you all and highlight
the main items here :
Insulators are now able to offer home friendlies
including evenings for 1st and 2nd team
Rusthall Club Athletic have secured a home pitch and are
offering dates on some Sundays.
Simla will be be playing FC Bartlett from Hackney on
August 3rd, venue TBA.
A number of additional matches have also now been
Paul Beadle has decided to step down as referee's
secretary owing to work commitments. We thank him for
his four years in the role, which as you all know is
crucial to the working of the League. Paul will continue
to serve on the League Council.
Andrew Newman will assume the post of referee's
secretary for next season. Contact details are on the League Council information page.
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.
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,
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!
OLD TEAM PICTURES
from bygone days can be seen here. Do you have an old
team picture you can scan or copy? Email me here.
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.
