As you can see at this point in time we were unable to split the Over 60’s Division due to not having sufficient clubs/teams in the North or Central Regions. We would need at least six teams in any one Region for us to split a Diviision. If a Region falls below six, consideration has to be given to the merging of the two Regions into one Division e.g. as the Over 60's. 

 

No decision has been made as yet regarding the three League Knockout Cups or the Charitable Trophy.

 

If there are any changes to the above tables - They will be updated daily until the deadline of the 31st January 2020. The FA's Full-Time website is also updated daily here.

Des Livings Has Been Appointed as the EWFL's League Treasurer

 

The Essex Walking Football League are pleased to announce the appointment of Des Livings as the League's Treasurer. Des is the current Treasurer of Eastwood Falcons Walking Football Club. He also manages their website and Facebook page. He did not play competitive football after leaving 6th Form College because he was lacking in both skill and speed! However, he has been a Referee officiating in the local Southend Leagues, the Essex Business Houses League and was often seen running the line in the Essex Senior League. He is a retired public servant with a long and varied career in HM Customs & Excise, the Ministry of Justice and ending as Head of IT at DCMS at the time of the Olympics.

 

The EWFL welcomes Des on board and he will play an important part in the future development of one of the best walking football leagues in the UK.

Each Aged-based Division Is To Have Their Own League Knockout Cup!

 

The Essex Walking Football League are pleased to announce that as from Season 2020 each aged-based Division will have their own League Knockout Cup. The two new knockout cups will also be in support of Prostate Cancer UK. It was felt that the previous format unnecessarily excluded Over 50's players so the League Committee decided to move to three aged-based Knockout Cups from Season 2020 onwards. It must be stressed that the League Knockout Cup(s) is a mandatory cup competition and therefore clubs must enter a team. For more details please go to the 'League Knockout Cups' page.
