FOOTBALL DEBT RECOVERY

With the season coming to a close, NOW is the time to chase up players who owe your club money. The process you must follow is set out on this website page - https://www.kentfa.com/leagues-and-clubs/finance/debt-recovery Players who do not clear their debts will be suspended next season until they pay, if the process is correctly followed.

CHECK YOUR PLAYER'S NAMES ON THE MATCH FORM!

To avoid problems, would all concerned please ensure that the player's name is exactly correct on the match form. That is, it is the same as on the player's registration.

Goudhurst United will be looking for new management for the oncoming season, to involve the taking of training and pre season games and match days during the season. More information and contact details here.

GAME OFF - WHO DO I CONTACT?

Would all club secretaries and anyone else responsible in their absence please read this page of procedures to follow. Your club may be fined and / or have to pay expenses if your opponents and referee travel unnecessarily. Please also try to contact your opponents and the referee the day before if a game is in doubt to let them know when the pitch will be inspected and a decision made.

KCFA INSURANCE CLAIMS

It seems that clubs are either submitting injury claims late or not at all. Information can be found at :- https://www.kentfafoundation.co.uk/how-to-apply/injured-player-fund/ and  http://www.kentfa.com/players/player-support/insurance

Clubs affiliated to other County Associations should check the relevant websites.

TEAM PHOTOS WANTED

One of the newspapers who prints our reports has asked if we can send them a team photo or two. If you are able to take a simple team photo before your game, please send it to me. Email webmaster@wksl.org.uk

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.

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 several pages. If you are interested, please contact Chairman Stuart Turner.

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!
