The Toolsation Western Football League this week announced the successor to Ken Clarke as General Secretary - who is standing down at the end of the season after 14 seasons in the job.
After receiving 11 applications the League Directors interviewed six applicants, and it was stated that the standard of all of those applying was very high. The final choice, ratified by the League's Board of Directors, was made and Mark Edmonds, based in Tidworth, Wiltshire, accepted the post - subject to formal endorsement at the League's AGM at the end of the season. Mark is no stranger to the Western League having served as a linesman and then referee for more than ten years, also officiating on the Wessex, Hellenic, Isthmian, Southern, Football Combination, Football Conference and FA Premier Reserve League.
Since 2004 Mark has served as a Wiltshire County FA Council member, and has been a director of the County FA since 2009. The Directors of the League are confident that Mark will be able to call on his wide experience of football administration to keep the Toolstation Western League at the forefront of the non-league game in the South West.
Also subject to confirmation at the AGM Ken Clarke will remain as Company Secretary of the Western Football League Ltd, which will enable him to remain involved but away from the day to day football governance of the League.
We have today been granted permission by the FA to extend the League playing season until Monday 5th May.
Tony Salvidge, fixtures officer, will update the fixtures in the next 24 hours.
This extension has been granted due the exceptional rainfall experienced and it is hoped that it will not need to be repeated in future seasons.

With the wet weather continuing for another week many clubs are beginning to worry about both money and fitness. Without paying spectators and bar takings lots of clubs are having to make other plans. That, of course, is easier to say than do with schemes to attract customers to club bars difficult to come by - if not impossible.
Match fitness is another worry, general physical fitness is relatively easy to maintain with training sessions but match fitness is most unrealistic to keep up without a full 90 minutes play. The other worry that presents itself with so many postponements is fitting in the outstanding fixtures, the headache for the Fixtures Officer is that there are very few vacant Saturdays left for fixtures, and there is no doubt that there will be some longer than hoped for midweek trips.
