4. Hon Treasurer’s report
5. Election of officers

All playing and social members who have paid their annual subs are invited to attend this meeting

Letter from the Chairman of the Kent County League:

All players and team managers please take note; this applies to all matches, not just those governed by the KCL.

From the desk of: Chairman

To: All Member Clubs

Dear Chairperson and Secretary,

I am writing to you about the increased number of reported instances regarding the use of foul, abusive and / or insulting words and behaviour at our matches.

The use of inappropriate language has over time become acceptable to many, but there are also an increasing number of others who feel it has no place in our game and recently the issue has been raised not only by clubs, when they submit their referee reports, but also by members of the community.

As a Charter Standard League all clubs have signed up to the FA’s standard code of conduct and whether it be as player, official or spectator I would remind you and those involved at your matches to never engage in offensive, insulting or abusive language or behaviour especially where matches are played in close proximity to residential or public areas. Where this is the case I must specifically ask that you remind teams and spectators to curb the use of inappropriate language.

Our panel of Referees will soon receive a communication from the Referees Officer in relation to this matter.

None of us want to see clubs lose their home ground due to objections of their Town or Parish Councils.

I do not apologise for my strong stance on this as such behaviour by anyone purporting to represent a club or this League in any capacity reflects badly on those of the vast majority of us all who turn out week in week out and act with the utmost commitment and professionalism.

Thank you all for your continued support.

Yours sincerely 

    Cyril Windiate
