NEWDIVISION ONE FIXTURES NEXT SUNDAY

The game between Goudhurst United and Artois United in ON. My fault, I inadvertently left it off the revised list.

NEW

FC HAYWARD NEXT SEASON - RESERVE TEAM?

They would like to hear from interested players, including those whose clubs have folded this season - read more here.

RESULTS SUNDAY 15th JANUARY

About half the scheduled games went ahead as planned. Results here, for updated league tables etc please start here. News report is here and the updated Top Goalscorers page is here.

Regrettably we have to announce that Blackham & Ashurst FC has folded. In accordance with League rules, their results have been deleted and the table adjusted. The revised Division One table can be seen here. Next Sunday's Division One fixtures have been revised on account of that and of the postponement of Tonbridge Origin's County Cup tie. There was also an error in the referee's appointments plus some other changes, the revised fixture list can be seen here.

CONFIRMATION OF FIXTURES TO OPPONENTS AND REFEREES- ANOTHER REMINDER!!!

ANOTHER REMINDER - HOME CLUBS MUST CONFIRM MATCH DETAILS TO OPPONENTS AND REFEREE NOT LATER THAN FIVE DAYS BEFORE THE GAME. RULE 10(d)  APPLIES. SOME CLUBS ARE NOT DOING THIS. AVOID FINES BY MAKING THOSE CALLS. IF YOU FIND YOURSELF LEAVING A MESSAGE (OR HAVE SENT A TEXT MESSAGE)  ASK FOR A CALL BACK TO CONFIRM IT HAS BEEN RECEIVED.
Some clubs are still not abiding by this rule. This is highly inconvenient and discourteous  to opponents and match officials.

(Referees have every right not to turn up if you don't confirm the game, which leaves the home club having to find a ref on the morning!)

SPRING CUP?

The Management Committee are aware of how kind the weather has been to us so far. If necessary a Spring Cup competition is under discussion, further details in due course. That is, as I said in the news report, a cue for six feet of snow to fall and no football to be played until Easter!

CLUB OFFICIALS - WHAT TO DO IF YOUR GAME IS CALLED OFF!

As we enter the depths of winter, here's a reminder for home club officials of what to do if your game is called off. Your club WILL be fined if these procedures are not followed and lead to wasted journeys, confusion and chaos.

WEBSITE ADVERTISING

We've been able to fill most of the available slots but there are still a few places remaining. These include the League table pages for Divisions One and Four and the well-read weekly news report page now that the Courier have pulled their advert.  If you or any of your contacts are interested, the cost is reduced to between £150 and £75 for the rest of the season, depending on placement. Please contact League Chairman Stuart Turner in the first instance. Contact details here.

These adverts cover the cost of running the website.

PLAYER REGISTRATIONS - EMERGENCY REGISTRATIONS

The registered players list is now available. This will be normally be updated on a Saturday morning. Two versions as before  - MS Excel and PDF. The PDF version is better for viewing on mobile devices or tablets.

Emergency registrations reminders  - these must be returned to the Registrations Secretary not later than the Wednesday following the match concerned. Also and IMPORTANT Emergency Registrations are not just for the one game. Once registered, he is yours until the registration is cancelled or he gets a transfer.

PLAYERS LOOKING FOR CLUBS, CLUBS LOOKING FOR PLAYERS

There are a large number adverts here where players are looking for clubs or clubs looking for players. Please check these first before emailing me! Also, if you are fixed up from either point of view, please let me know so that I can remove your advert. Thanks.

ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING THE POST OF WKSFL GENERAL SECRETARY

Angela Barham has agreed to stay on as League General Secretary for the new season. However, the league would be very interested to hear from anyone willing and able to take on this vitally important role.

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 your call.

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!

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.
