make sure your players behave in a respectful manner.The League have had
reports of players urinating on the side of pitches and also use of
foul language off and on the pitch.

Reserves withdrawing from the league it will mean that only two teams
(Rusthall III and Tonbridge Invicta Reserves) will contest Group B of

was agreed that they should play each other home and away to decide the
group winner and runner-up.

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.

The draws can be seen here. It's good to see some new names, not so good to see fewer entries.
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
YouTube video clip - http://youtu.be/e81AnjPWcVE

touch with Simeone Honore by email.
