Whole Game System
We have been advised by the E.C.F.A. that the Whole Game System (WGS) has now gone live and details have been sent out to all club secretaries in this regard
If you have not received notification of this you are urged to contact Greg.Hart@essexfa.com who is in charge of the system at the E.C.F.A.
11 September 2015
The League Secretary has received several telephone calls regarding players who have joined a new club and who are alleged to still owe their old club money
Below is a copy of information we have received from our ECFA Representative regarding this
"As usual at this time of year, complaints are received of players owing money to previous clubs when registering for new clubs. As a reminder, it is not permissible for Leagues to hold lists of debtors. The only Football Debt Recovery (FDR) process is that carried out by the County Football Association. If a player owed money to a Club from last season that Club should have made contact with the player to request the debt is cleared and, if still outstanding, should have referred it to the ECFA as per the FDR process. Unless this has been done the player is free to register for a new Club."

Sending in Results by SMS
Please read the SMS Guides available via the link in the left hand margin
After you have sent in the result to Full Time wait a few minutes and then check that it shows up in the results list correctly. If it does not send it in again
The home teams score is always entered first followed by the away team.
Please remember that AWAY teams must not send in results for League matches, League Cup matches or matches in outside competitions when you are playing teams from within our League
The only time you send a result in when you are the away team is if you are playing in an outside competition against opponents from outside our League
On Saturday an away team sent in the result the wrong way round resulting in the match report being incorrect
Please note the special instructions regarding cup matches that go to extra time or extra time and penalties.
From now on clubs that get it wrong WILL be fined.
15 August 2015
The League use Twitter to get important information out to clubs in our League as soon as possible.
Several clubs have said that they do not do Twitter, but you are urged, if your club does not have a Twitter account of its own, to ensure that one of your officers does.
Just because you have a Twitter account does not mean you have to post any messages. It just means that by following the the EOFL Twitter page you will be kept up to date with the latest league news.
As part of the F.A. Respect Programme clubs are requested give all of their players, coaches and spectators access to a copy of the Respect Code of Conduct.
Copies of these codes of conduct are detailed below.
All of the above are also requested to sign a register to acknowledge the fact that they have been made aware of what is expected of them.
Copies of draft registers can be downloaded from the link below. All you have to do is enter the name of your club and get them signed.
The League takes the conduct of players, officials and spectators very seriously and will not hesitate to take action against those who do not abide by these Codes of Conduct. Ultimately persistent misconduct by any of the above could lead to your club being recommended for exclusion from next seasons constitution.
Copies of the Code of Conduct for Match Officials are also available below as are details of what is expected of Club Captains.
Your co-operation with this would be appreciated as continued funding of the League by the F.A. is dependant on us showing that we are taking the Respect Programme seriously
