New team, Newbury East

As the much anticipated 2021/22 season approaches, many teams will be gearing up for the new season, and some, even their debut season.

Champs don’t always sit top

There is still one game to go in the Essex Olympian League as I write this, but that shouldn’t make much different to ACD United’s promotion party as they get promoted to Division Two as Champions.

A welcomed return!

A welcomed return!

Harlow Town Ladies finally returned to training on Wednesday, the first time since the UK entered another lockdown in the New Year.
