Nominations from teachers being accepted

Trial nominations are now being accepted from teachers across Essex for talented schools footballers who could represent the county in 2015-16.

The Essex County Schools FA run seven representative teams: boys under-18s (A and B), under-16s, under-15s and under-14s, as well as girls under-16s and under-14s.

All the sides currently participate in the South-East England Schools Football Association (SEESFA) competition against squads representing counties including Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Kent, Surrey and Sussex.

Each age group (with the exception of the boys under-15s) also compete in the English Schools Inter-County Trophy and the 2014-15 season brought a great deal of regional and national success.

Former England internationals David Beckham, Tony Adams and John Terry are amongst a number of names to have enjoyed a career at the top echelons of the game having represented Essex Schools during their youth upbringing.

An initial trial stage has been set-up for three male age groups, with the two female teams’ trials ongoing. The names of the players who are successful in making final trials will be published in the ‘Competitions’ section of www.essexfa.com. Dates have been arranged as follows:
