Coronavirus Update: FA Announcement on Grassroots Football - Impact on EWFL?

We did seek advice from Essex County FA regarding the Football Association recent announcement about the suspension of grassroots football leagues. We would like to confirm that the EWFL is being classified as a 'Summer League' and because we have already commenced our season fixtures the FA have confirmed via the ECFA that we would be able to  re-commence our fixtures once we have received clearance i.e. when it’s safe to do so. Once football recommences the league can look to see how much time is remaining before the end of the season and can plan appropriately. At the moment the EWFL Committee are anticipating that it is not going to be before the 30th June 2020. Therefore, if and when we get the go ahead it is likely to be shortened version of the current league format or a revision thereof.

Over 50's & Over 65's Rep Sides' Managers/Coaches Needed

An immediate appointment to these two roles is needed.  If you are a FA qualified coach (desirable minimum at least Level 1, FALCC Member) please e-mail with a covering letter demonstrating how you meet the requirements of this voluntary role to Derek Murr, League Press and Public Relations Officer, The role specification is available here.
