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.

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.

PS……and don’t forget to wash your hands!!

Cup Finals

All “catch-up” finals have now been played, so thanks to the competing clubs for bearing with us and waiting until we could officially play the games.

We did try and defy the system and play earlier, but it was a Government stipulation, and further clarified by Essex County that we were NOT to play these in July & August.
