RESULTS SUNDAY 8th DECEMBER AND TOPGOALSCORERS PAGE
The Top goalscorers page is updated. Tom Cobb of the Boars moves one closer to Dave Fowler (King William IV) at the head of the table. Many of the regular scorers seem to have missed out this week. There are only three hat-tricks to note : Mike Culverhouse (Cassidy's Phoenix) and a pair for FC Revolution by Sam Jones and Josh Epstein. On the goalkeeper's front, Kevin Churchill of Crowborough Town OB has now collected six for the season. All the details here.
All Sunday's results are here, news report here. For updated League tables etc please start here.
Our congratulations go to Cranbrook Town and Tonbridge Six in One,
who have made it through to the county-wide round of 16 in the Kent
Sunday Junior Cup, likewise Royal Oak in the Kent Sunday Junior Trophy.
In the Surrey Lower Junior Cup, Dormansland Rockets are through to the
fourth round where they will be at home to either Castle Hill
(Reserves) or A.F.C. Shirley on 26th January.
REAL MADRAS FC - CHANGE OF HOME GROUND
All concerned please note that henceforward Real Madras will be
playing their home matches at the Five Oak Green Recreation Ground.
CHANGES TO FIXTURES 15th and 22nd DECEMBER
There was a problem with my upload of the fixtures for 15th December and some of you may have viewed an incorrect version earlier today. It is (I sincerly hope) now correctly visible here.
Simla´s county cup tie at Bromley Green has been postponed until 15th
December. This has meant changes to Division One fixtures. There are
other changes consequent upon the resignation of Ramsey FC. All relevant
pages have been updated.
RAMSEY FC RESIGN FROM THE LEAGUE
It is with regret that we inform you that, following a meeting with
the League Council last week, Ramsey FC have resigned from the League
with immediate effect. The necessary adjustments to the Division Three have been made.
None of their players may register for other teams until all debts to the League have been settled.
RULE 13 (B)
All clubs are reminded of this rule which deals with a situation
where an appointed referee fails to appear or is injured during the
course of a match.
ROLL ON ROLL OFF SUBSTITUTES
For clarification - the 'roll on roll off 'or unlimited substitutions
rule applies only to Kent County Cup matches. It is NOT in force for
any WKSFL match.
TUNBRIDGE WELLS COUNCIL PITCHES - CHANGE TO CANCELLATION PROCEDURE
It has been agreed with TWBC that a message will be posted on the
pitchline number at 5pm on Saturdays, then again at 9am on Sundays if
required. For the full details, please go to the gameoff page.
FIXTURE DETAILS CONFIRMATION
ALL clubs are reminded that you MUST confirm details
of home fixtures to opponents AND REFEREE not later
than five days before the match. Rule 10(d) refers.
Any Club failing to comply with this Rule shall be
liable to a fine of £5, increased by £5 per offence.
If you confirm by leaving a message (email, voicemail
or text) rather than a person to person phone call, it
is a good idea to request an acknowledgment ie message
received and understood.
MIDWEEK PRACTICE AT HAWKENBURY ANYONE?
Ramsfield are looking for opposition 6 or 7 a side at
the Hawkenbury astro pitch on Tuesdays from 7 to 8pm.
Details on the club
adverts page. Might be handy to get some
football in during the rainy season.
Many clubs are finding it difficult to field quality
teams on a Sunday morning. If you live in the area and
are not playing, why not get in touch? Details on
these plus all contact details at the club adverts page.
We have now had three instances of clubs playing
unregistered players. Confirmation of player
registration is sent by email to club secretaries, who
will keep a list and ensure that team captains and
managers know who is and is not available. The
Registrations Secretary is quite happy to copy these
emails to other club members eg captains or team
managers so that the confirmation message has more
than one chance of getting through. If you would like
additional email addresses, please EMAIL the details
to email@example.com making sure you
include the name of your club and that the email
addresses are correct!
But please remember that the player is NOT CONSIDERED
REGISTERED until the club has received confirmation -
Rule 8(B) (i) refers. It's no good just sending in the
form and assuming that everything will be in order.
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.
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!
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.
OLD TEAM PICTURES
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
Please note that 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.
