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.
