Essex Sunday Football Combination

First & Foremost Sunday League

Welcome to the brand new website of the Essex Sunday Football Combination. Formed in 1937 we are the County’s first & foremost grassroots Sunday football league competition.

As we enter our 83rd year, we look forward with renewed enthusiasm and determination that everyone will find the challenges as exciting as they have ever been before. We strive to make this a quality and progressive environment for each and every one of our teams. With the wealth of talent being drawn in from all quarters of the country’s finest county, their presence is important and welcomed as they make a name for themselves.

With a long list of recognised achievements from County Cup finalists & winners we aim to make the ESFC the place to be.

We hope you are part of our journey and look forward to sharing your success stories both on and off the field of play

Essex Sunday Premier Cup

Belfry 4, Brays Athletic 1

A perfect well controlled performance at Ilford Wanderers RC this morning took the honours in a feisty game. Brays arrived and set about their play with vigour and application.

Belfry soon had them on the backfoot though as the centre of midfield saw dominance and incisive passes repeatedly saw them break through the ranks to gain the edge. Fine teamwork all round was key to the eventual outcome and also staying clear of ill discipline, a trait with which the visitors should have heeded themselves.

By HT is was 2-0 to the Combination side and by the time a third was netted 9 mins after the break, the game was effectively over.

Three became a four goal lead but in the last moments Brays pulled one back.

All in all this was a classy win, several players contributing to the effort but each player stood up to be counted, never letting the opposition dictate.

Well done Belfry. Deserved triumph.

Highlights of the AGM

A successful AGM concluded with the presentation and recognition of all the achievements for last season. The following were some of the items agreed for 2019-20.

  • Suspend the introduction of rolling substitutions while we adopt the new Sin Bin requirements
  • New rules regarding qualification of players between First Team and Reserves
  • All new player registrations must be submitted by noon on the Friday before the game but you are still allowed to sign two new players on the day of a league game. All other registration rules stay the same.
  • Double Header fee for a referee is raised from £45 to £50 to bring them in line with most other leagues. No changes to any other fees.

Our aim, as it is every season, is to provide an honest, fair and competitive league for all teams to compete in. We pride ourselves in trying to do things the right way…..with respect for everyone and all other organisations. By nature we are competitive and expect everyone to behave and respect and preserve the integrity of these competitions. I have an experienced Management team who have decades of experience and share my love for the game. Between us we intend to continue to improve the experience for our own clubs and look forward to making sure the ESFC is the place to be for all teams and match officials.
