AUGUST PRE SEASON MATCHES MORE SCORES AND FIXTURES ADDED

Please keep these coming! Football, especially at our level, needs all the help it can get!

I have been able to add a few more confirmed pre season matches to the fixture lists. There are just a few requests / offers outstanding which can be seen here.

Any club wishing to add pre season matches and results to the fixture list, just email the details to webmaster@wksl.org.uk - these will be listed on the normal fixtures pages.

CLUB CONTACTS AND INFORMATION HANDBOOK PAGE NOW AVAILABLE

The updated club contacts and information pages (contact details, grounds used, club colours etc) are now available. These can be viewed and downloaded via this page.

MAILING LIST REMINDER

For the benefit of club secretaries and others, I keep a mailing list through which all subscribers are notified of website updates.  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.

You will be notified of results and updated league tables (normally) around 10.00am every Monday morning, also of the availability of the monthly fixture lists plus any ad-hoc updates that may occur through the season.

PRE - SEASON PAGE NOW AVAILABLE

The regular 'pre - season´ page is now open. This has the usual sections :

Clubs offering pre-season friendlies  Clubs seeking pre-season friendlies   Confirmed friendlies plus results in due course if you send me the information

In addition the club adverts page is available for players seeking clubs, clubs seeking players and items wanted or for sale.

STATEMENT FROM THE LEAGUE

Following the recent AGM Chairman Stuart Turner confirmed that if required he would stay on as Chairman beyond season 20-21.  He had previously stated that this was to be his last.

In a statement he said 'having only lost two clubs from last season and gained five new clubs , despite the Covid-19 situation, I think the future of the League looks good. However with two possibly three senior members of the Management Committee standing down at the end of next season, I feel it would not be in the interest of the league for a new Chairman to inherit this position'.

General Secretary Angela Barham, and Referees Secretary Andrew Newman have both confirmed that season 20-21 will be their last and Treasurer Reg Mackekden is keeping his options open.

Stuart went on to say. ' We will of course now work towards finding replacements for these important positions and a number of options have been put forward. Rest assured all members of the current committee will be active in trying to find suitable officers. ‘We all look forward to the return of Grass Roots Football as soon as it is safe’.

ADVERTISING

We like to have the small cost of running the website paid through advertising by local businesses We currently have space for small adverts on the weekly fixtures and results page, the individual League tables and Results grids pages, also on the 'print all tables' page and Top Goalscorers page. If you are interested, please contact Chairman Stuart Turner.

PLAYER DEBTS FROM LAST SEASON

If any of your players owe money from last season, now is the time to start chasing them if you fear they may walk away. It may be too late once the new season starts.  The official procedure is set out here. The WKSFL will not act as your debt recovery service!

GIVE YOUR OLD KITS TO PEOPLE WHO NEED THEM

Two Crowborough Town kits, that's the full strip of Yellow Shirts, Green Shorts, Yellow Socks and a full strip of White Shirts, White Shorts, White Socks, plus a full set of Black pre-match warm-up tops, will be going to Gambia where a Crowborough school (Beacon Academy) have over many years, helped to build and develop a school. They were sent a couple of kits some year ago and the kids (teenagers) loved them as the shirts bear the Crowborough Town badge.

Here is another example of what can be done rather than chucking them out! Ian Trim, who plays for Artois United, used the item below to make contact and have an old kit sent out to Malawi. So if you have old kits, don't hesitate to put them to good use. Five pictures below, click to see larger size.

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!
