LATEST NEWS - Thursday 18th August 2016

NEW

FIXTURES SECRETARY MOBILE NUMBER

This was incorrectly listed in the Handbook. The correct number is 07484 324841.

NEWREFEREES WANTED

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.

For further details contact:  referees@tonbridgeleague.org.uk or read this from KCFA.

SEPTEMBER FIXTURES - UPDATED

Kent County Cup matches have required some changes to fixtures on September 24th.

These updates and other September fixtures are on the website here. Because September has only three weeks of fixtures, I have put them all on the same page.  Later on, when cups etc start, I will split weeks as usual.

TUNBRIDGE WELLS CHARITY CUPS 2016 - 2017

The draws can be seen here. It's good to see some new names, not so good to see fewer entries.

CONSTITUTION OF THE LEAGUE AND LEAGUE CUPS

The confirmed constitution of the League, President's Cup and Chairman's Cup for next season can be seen here. All the relevant pages will be updated in good time for the new season.

I am awaiting the new season's handbook for publication here.

CHANGES TO THE LAWS OF FOOTBALL AS FROM 1st JUNE

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 YouTube video clip - http://youtu.be/e81AnjPWcVE

If you can offer anything or a small donation, get in touch with Simeone Honore by email.

LINKS TO CLUB WEBSITES

If your club has a website and you would like me to link to it from the clubs page, please email the URL and I will do so. Please link back to http://www.tonbridgeleague.org.uk in return. Thanks.

TEAM AND ACTION PICTURES

If you would like the world to see team photos, pictures or short video clips from your games, send them to me. Pictures in JPG format please; movies, well you can try any format you like eg wmv or avi or mpg and I will see what I can do. If you post videos or pictures on Youtube, Flickr etc, let me know and I will put a link on this page.

END OF SEASON TRIP TO PORTUGAL?

If your club is considering an end of season trip in May or June, I have a reliable and efficient contact who can arrange some football for you in the Algarve region of Portugal. The company works full-time arranging football tours for all age groups. They will arrange everything, if required,  except flights.

If you are interested, please email me and I will pass you the contact details.
