This the Essex League Round 3 at Shooters.

We have ten teams entered, they are as follows: Shooters A & B, Chelmsford Clarets & Whites, Basildon, Halstead, Southend, Colchester, Flying Foxes (Foxash Social & Sports club, originally Manningtree) and TRA Walking Football (Romford).

We will play a round robin format, so at the moment as long as no-one pulls out there will be nine games that will be the duration of ten minutes straight.
As all the teams will be playing at the same time every game I have allowed a ten minute break between games, however if the teams and referees are ready to play before the scheduled kick off times then they can. The earlier the games kick off the earlier we can finish and get in the bar.

Please click on the link to see the fixtures and kick off times for the day:

All teams will be paying £35.00 per team as they have done in the previous two meetings.
First games will be scheduled to kick off at 10.30am so it would be good if you could be here by 10.00am to register.

The competition will hopefully be finished by 1.20pm the latest if the schedule is stuck to, if not slightly earlier.

There will also be a small buffet provided for all the teams afterwards in the clubhouse.

Unfortunately we have a very small changing room area, so there is a chance that you may have to wait to get in there if you require to shower and change.

Remember also that this is a 5 aside tournament instead of 6 aside that you and your players have been used to in the previous two league meetings.
I have attached the rules to this email that we have played in previous tournaments here and at our weekly sessions to familiarise yourselves with.
I have also sent an email with the rules attached to the Mr James Lisher at The Essex FA who will be providing us with the referees for the competition on the day.
