IMPORTANT!! FUTURE OF TONBRIDGE & DISTRICT FOOTBALL LEAGUE WHICH HAS BEEN IN EXISTENCE SINCE 1898
Official statement from the League :
At the Tonbridge & District Football League Clubs Meeting due to be
held on 1st February 2017 a decision needs to be made as to the future
of the League.
At the last AGM there was no nomination for League Secretary,if this
post had not been not filled the League would have ceased to exist and
it was too late at this time for clubs to register with other Leagues.
Les Dewis volunteered to take up the post for one season only.
As well as this position there are vacancies on the League Management Committee.
Please now consider are there any persons out there who are
willing to take on these duties as well as any others that may occur.
Also are you happy with the current formation of the League, one
division of 10 teams. Both clubs who entered Reserve teams in the League
found it difficult to run two teams separately and consequently both
Reserve teams were withdrawn.
Please let your Club Secretaries or any member of The League Management Committee know your thoughts.
MID SEASON REPORT AND PREDICTIONS
A short read here. Welcome to 2017
and let's hope the weather will be as kind as it has been during
November and December. Fixtures resume this Saturday, 7th January.
Leigh will be losing a couple of strikers in the New Year. They seek a
replacement. Anyone interested should contact Dave on 07595 441209.

reports of players urinating on the side of pitches and also use of
foul language off and on the pitch.

You have probably noticed how short the local leagues are for referees. You can help.
Are you thinking of hanging up your boots?
Do you still want to be involved with local football?
Do you think you could become a referee?
If so there may be sponsorship available.

CHANGES TO THE LAWS OF FOOTBALL
I have updated the link to the revised Laws of the Game
to take you to the FIFA website as they are not posted on the English
FA website. There are a number of fundamental changes with which you
must all be familiar before the new pre-season. This includes this
little gem, Law 11, offside, paragraph 4 which reads "If an offside
offence occurs, the referee awards an indirect free kick where the
offence occurred, including if it is in the playerís own half of the
field of play" which means that you can no longer say 'in me own half,
ref!' as if you come back into your half from an offside position and
interfere with play etc the free kick is given from where you did it,
not from where you were when the ball was kicked. So when does the
assistant ref flag, especially if the player has run 25 or 30 yards into
his own half? Have fun!
DO YOU HAVE OLD KITS CLUTTERING UP THE PLACE?
The Lighthouse Project, based at Longmead Primary School
in Tonbridge, is involved with a scheme to donate football
equipment to kids in the Phillippines. Take a look at this

touch with Simeone Honore by email.
