Hello everyone and welcome to a preview of the Opening Weekend of the 2020-21 Essex Olympian League season, taking in all of the fixtures across League & the Senior League Cup. Given that the EOFL Premier Division sits at Step 7 (or to quote the new FA buzzword – a ‘NLS Feeder League’ – I know I prefer the former phrase), it has got the go-ahead, subject to changes & guidelines, to begin on Saturday September 5th.

On the opening day, the Premier Division does take ‘centre stage’ with regards to the League action, with the bulk of Senior One to Three sides in Cup action. The intention at this stage is that I’ll continue with the EOFL round-ups most weeks (at least) on this blog this season though I do ask EOFL Clubs to pass on goal-scorers & results where possible. Also I have to mention that until further notice, matches at Step 7 (EOFL Premier Division) will be played Behind Closed Doors, as per FA directives issued on August 4th.

Finally, if there is any info that is inaccurate, could I ask clubs to DM me on Twitter and I will amend, thank you. Every effort has been made to keep it up to date.

I'm a Mental Health survivor (been surviving for years) & campaigner. I also like Music & Sport. This blog is centred on all things Non-League Football, mainly Match Reports of matches I've seen (mainly Essex Senior League (ESL) but also other Leagues) though it also houses the regular round-up's of the ESL action plus the Essex Olympian League divisions regularly. It also has the odd post about the scary world that we're all in, talking from a Mental Health perspective. Thank you for reading.
