Following a request last week from the Essex Senior League, and with the approval of the Football Association and the agreement of the club, the Eastern Counties League has agreed that, to maintain the number of teams in the Essex Senior League at 20, Leyton Athletic FC (formerly known as Wadham Lodge FC) will be released from the Eastern Senior League and will now play the 2018/19 season in the Essex Senior League.

This, of course, means that the Eastern Senior League Division 1 (South) will now be running with 19 clubs for the coming season, but we will be making every effort to ensure that It operates at full capacity in the 2019/20 season.Β 

The Eastern Counties League is pleased to be able to assist the Essex Senior League in this matter.
