League Over 45 Representative Team
Welcome to the Essex Veterans Football League Website. The League was founded in 1993 as a sub-section of the Mid-Essex League, before becoming an independent League in 2002.
During the 2020/21 season the League has 90 teams playing in nine Divisions, with the minimum age of players being 35. We are also running four Over 45 Divisions with a total of 37 teams, which makes us the largest Saturday League in Essex. The League covers from Southend in the South East of the County, right along to Walthamstow, up the M11 corridor to Newport, across to Silver End and then down to Tillingham.
Sportsmanship and hospitality are a key element of the competition. The David Thrift trophy is presented each year to the team with a combination of the best sportsmanship marks and fewest cautions from referees.
The Noticeboard has details of Clubs looking for players and/or friendlies.
