This is a mandatory change and all clubs will need to have attended one of the training sessions being provided across the county before they will be affiliated by Essex FA for next season.

If you have any queries with this please contact Rob Craven at Essex FA.


Merger with Basildon and District Sunday League

An update from the League Secretary.

The committees of both leagues have held a very constructive and positive meeting in which they examined both sets of rules and looked to select the best or most appropriate option in those areas where they differed.

The recommended changes will be sent to Essex FA for approval prior to being circulated to all clubs ahead of the AGM in June
