Representative Game Result:

On Tuesday 6th February the Leagues representative team played The Southend & District Borough Combination League at the Len Forge Centre. We are pleased to advise that we were 4-1 victors. The League would like to thank all the players and the team management for their efforts on Tuesday evening and a special well done has to go to supports from both leagues who turned out on a very cold evening.
We are hoping to arrange further matches against The Sceptre League and the Vets League in the future so watch his space if you are interested in playing for the League.

Management Committee:

The committee is always looking for new members and if anyone is interested we have various roles vacant including vice-Chairman and press and publicity. If you are interested or know of anyone who is then please let us know.

Donations to Charity:

Every year the League makes donations to local charities from the proceeds of the charity cup competition. Last year we donated a total of £2,000. We are looking for nominations of local charities who you think will benefit from a donation. We are looking for local charities not local branches of national charities where our donation will make a great difference. Please note that they must be a registered charity for the League to make the donation on your behalf.

Useful Information:

Each week the League receives a number of queries relating to various aspects of the League and the League Rules. Please review the details found on the "Useful Information" page of the website as many of the answers can be found by clicking here, but please note the following;
Fixtures - As the home team please ensure that you confirm the game with the away team and the referee as soon as possible and that if you want to request a free Sunday you need to give 6 weeks notice and are only allowed one per season, and,
Full Time - Please ensure that you complete the match report on Full Time as soon as possible after the game and by Wednesday at the latest, you need to include any yellow or red cards that your team receive and the referees mark should be out of 100.

Signing Players on the Day:

Following a couple of queries we thought that we would clarify the process for signing players on the day.
Any player whose details have not been registered on the WGS by 19.00 on the Friday before a match can only play if he has completed a Signed On The Day Form which is part of the team sheet. It is important that this is legible so it is probably best to complete this on the bottom (green) copy only so that you can copy this and send to Karen Andrews within two days of the match.
When a player is Signed On The Day, that player may not play again for your club until such time as your club have registered the player on the WGS, and your club has been notified via the WGS that his registration has been accepted. Result/Stats on Full Time cannot be entered for a match until the registration has been accepted on WGS. Any player who plays for your club again before this notification of acceptance has been received by your club will be regarded as an ineligible player.
A player signed on the day also has to sign the Player Registration Document before he can play again. The League Secretary has sent important information to all club secretaries regarding updating the club directory and full time information. This requires a response from all clubs by 25th August at the latest.
