ACHIEVING LOCAL grassroots GLORY
Male and Female County Cups for Various Age Groups
Here in Essex there are 22 County Cups for adult and youth, male and female teams to participate in. Affiliated clubs have an ever-growing number of competitions to compete in as they bid for local glory. We're delighted with the support we receive from BBC Essex to promote our Senior, Saturday Premier and Women's Cups.
Players from under 12s right the way up to veterans football are accommodated in addition to five separate female cups. Twelve adult County Cups are split between Saturday and Sunday football. The modern game caters for a variety of different formats, plus there are matches for charitable causes.
We organise the Tolleshunt D’Arcy Memorial Cup, an invitational competition for clubs in the Maldon area which was set-up in 1933 to raise money for the Essex County FA Benevolent Fund, supporting those in financial hardship as a result of a football-related injury. In addition, the Essex Thames-Side Trophy also generates money for charity.
