First & Foremost
Welcome to the website of the oldest established Sunday League in Essex. Formed in 1937 we are proud to have laid the foundations and traditions for competitive grassroots football in the local area. We have a wealth of experience in our Management team to allow us to provide a competitive platform for all the teams that make up such a successful and challenging environment. Catering for all levels of teams, from serious Senior level quality football that is amongst the most successful on a Sunday, and boasting several winners of County competitions, all the way down to friends knocking it about for a bonding session every weekend. We have it all.
In the middle of our 84th year of existence, our strengths are that we remain mindful of what it is to take part where fairness and a challenge are cornerstones of what makes for successful competitions. We are constantly trying to evolve in the right way.

Whilst we are under some “house arrest” with no social gatherings allowed we are unable to commit to the date of the next Council Meeting. As soon as we are able, we will be getting the clubs together to discuss the way forward.
STAY SAFE & BE WELL
PS……and don’t forget to wash your hands!!
Although these decisions now ultimately stay with us, we will be doing our best to see when we can get football back on the field.
In light of there still being some competitions being left open from 2019-2020 our initial concerns will be whether these games would still fit the remit of the season which really hasn’t seen any action since January or February this year.
