The final date for closing dates in August, including 22 August, has now passed, so clubs should not make further requests as they will be refused
The League are still awaiting confirmation on availability dates from some facilities and also Ryman and Essex Senior League fixtures. As soon as these are received work can start on the August fixtures
There will be a few mid-week matches early in the season on grounds that have floodlights and can therefore accomodate 7:45 kick-offs

Return of Information Forms
10 clubs, almost 20% of the total membership, have still not returned the forms sent to them by the League Fixtures Secretary in May
A note was posted on this site in May telling clubs that the forms had been sent out and asking any club that had not receved them to contact the League Fixtures Secretary straight away
The deadline for their return is 30 June after which a charge will be levied against the clubs who have still not returned their completed forms and a fine will follow.
Not a good way to start the season.

All Team Averages
Ordered lists showing the averages for all Senior, Reserve and Under 21 Division teams have now been uploaded
These lists are based on the SA of each team. The SA is basically the number of points scored as a percentage of the number of points possible for each team
The number of points scored takes account of the fact that we changed from 2 points for a win to 3 points for a win some seasons ago and also includes points awarded/deducted for rule infringements.
These files are in .pdf format

Pre-Season Matches, Officers or Players
Rather than have a page on this web site advertising for pre-season matches, club officers or players, with over 1000 people following the League on Twitter, I intend using this medium to do this
If you are looking for any of the above, just put out a tweet with the prefix @eofl and I will re-tweet it to the Leagues followers. This way I believe you will get more coverage.

F.A. Inter League Cup
The draw for the first round of the FA Inter League Cup took place yesterday and sees the EOFL playing away from home for only the second time since they entered the competition over 10 seasons ago.
The team will be playing the Cambridgeshire County League in a match scheduled to be played before 26 September 2015.
Cambridgeshire County League knocked the EOFL out at the semi-final stage back in season 2003/2004 before losing to the Mid-Cheshire League 2 - 1 in the final.
