Essex Walking Football League Competition Rules 2019
To come in line with the revised FA's LOTG's and changes to the EWFL League Competition Rules our 'Documents' will be amended. No significant changes are expected. All current 2018 and 2019 forms/policies/rules etc are on our 'Documents' page.
What is the difference between Law and Competition Rules? - Law allows for variances in certain aspects of the game (i.e. type of ball or length of match) that can be determined by a specific competition underneath their own set of rules in order to unify the format of matches within that particular competition. Very simply, laws should be applied consistently wherever the game is played whereas competition rules allow for some flexibility and local variance where appropriate to do so.
Want To Have A Say On How the League is Run?
The Essex Walking Football League ('EWFL') are looking for a League Secretary, Fixtures & Results Secretary, Players Registration Secretary, Referee's Development Officer and an additional member for the Rules Committee to join their team of officers.
The candidates do not need to be a EWFL registered player or be aged over 50. As with other League Committee roles it is voluntary. With the expected increase in the size of each EWFL Division next season this will increase workload for all current three Committee members!

"We all should find something we love and enjoy doing – walking football is an excellent recreational sport and joining a team in the Essex Walking Football League may provide that opportunity to re-live some of those childhood memories (but don't forget the walking!)"
