West Kent Ladies' League, 2003 season

Summary

Clubs play on Mondays and Wednesdays, home and away. The season starts on the first Wednesday in May. Two points are awarded for a win and one point for a draw. The results are sent to the secretary each week who forwards the results to the local paper hoping to have them printed each Friday. Rosa Gower, who many will know from her days as Kent county captain, is Kent president and keen to offer help and support to newer stoolball players. Kent's AGM is held in March each year, when the election of officers takes place.

The season ends with all clubs taking part in an all-day tournament, with seven teams each in two sections. The winners of each section then play in the final. The league awards are then presented by the president, rounding off a great day of stoolball. Players from this league also play in county matches for Kent and Kent Under-21s.
