TOP GOALSCORERS UPDATED
After eleven weeks of almost total inactivity for most teams, it's
good to be able to get back to some sense of normality. Last Sunday's
noteworthy goalscoring exploits were topped with four by James Humphrey
for Tonbridge Six in One, with hat-tricks for Ron Gordon of Jarvis Brook
and Doug Morrow of Brenchley Reserves. Dave Fowler of King
William IV still tops the overall table with 27 goals for, I think it is
fair to say, half a season! Tom Cobb of The Boars and Zak Pollard of
Flying Dutchman are gaining ground, both now have 24. On the
goalkeeper's clean sheets, Alex Gunn of Jarvis Brook is now tied
on six with Kevin Churchill of Crowborough Town OB.
Several clubs did not report their goalscorers. If you didn't, you can always email me to catch up.
All the goalscoring details here.

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
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!
This site is
visited about 14,000 times a month during the
playing season. You can advertise on various
pages within the site for a small fee. Please
contact either Angela
Barham or Stuart
Turner in the first instance.
