IMPORTANT NEWS - All games tomorrow the 28th February have been postponed.

The games were postponed early as the pitches have already had a lot of rain on them over the past week. With further heavy rain due during Saturday night, the decision by Thanet Leisureforce & the league was to postpone the games at 6pm on Saturday instead of Sunday morning. Private grounds such as St Lukes and school pitches called their games off during Friday & Saturday. This gives players plently of notification, instead of the last minute notice at 9am on Sunday morning. Playing on water soaked pitches will only cause further damage to the pitch and impact the following months games due to damaged and unplayable pitches. We are trying to safeguard the pitches for your benefit.

Hope this explains the reason for the early postponement of games tomorrow.

Extract from Isle of Thanet Gazette (Friday 12 February 2010) 

ALBION Athletic have avoided being kicked out of the Belmonte Thanet Sunday Football League by the skin of their teeth. There was big support for the league’s proposal to expel them but it fell two votes short of being carried. Former double winners Albion were in hot water following a string of disciplinary issues, the most serious of these being the assault on referee Will Sanderson by Patrick Dyett which brought a charge of misconduct. Forty of the 67 votes cast at a league Respect meeting on Tuesday were in favour of excluding Albion. That added up to 60 per cent but a two-thirds majority (67 per cent) was required under league rules. George Thorley spoke for Albion and told the meeting his club were prepared to adhere to the FA’s Respect campaign and acknowledged they were on their last chance.

League chairman Ernie McGarvey said: I remind you all of the FA Respect programme slogan – ‘No respect, no referee, no game.’ “This is a daunting prospect and with the recent issues within our league leading to dwindling numbers of the men in black, we could not sit around and wait for this to happen.”

Referees are now marking clubs on their behaviour and the I.O.T.G paper will bring you regular updates on the Respect league table.

When using the facilities at Birchington Rec, please respect not only the parking conditions there but the local residents properties.

Banging muddy boots against a residents wall in attempt to clean them is not very nice, so please refrain from doing so in the future.
