CARPENTERS ARMS & WALLADS – LOUGHTON TUESDAYS

What a season for these two sides in particular as they were both superb!

CARPENTERS ARMS FC were ruthless as they won their first 7 out of 7 to wrap up the title with three games to spare, before slipping up the next few which meant they didn’t get their perfect season!

El Capitan, Fabian FLANAGAN had his side on point every week and with their fast free flowing football they stormed to the title for the first time in their history!

Congratulations to all the Carps: Fabian FLANAGAN, James ROSE, Joe SALMON, Remarlo RAPIER, Fraser McCARTHY, Asap LOMENA, Lewis SCARFE, Frankie BULLOCK & Martin CARNER

In the Championship and what a title and promotion race this one turned out to be! The last few seasons bottom side AVONDALE RANGERS FC put in some inspired performances as they went into the final game of the season against old foes WALLADS in a winner takes all game! What a turnaround!

WALLADS had a much improved season after finding some consistency and knew they just needed to win this one to wrap the title up and get promotion back to the big time after a few seasons away from it.

WALLADS romped home emphatically winning 6-0 to take the title in style and get their hands on the silverware!

Commiserations and congrats to Avondale Rangers who end up promoted in second place to get their first taste of Premiership football but massive Congratulations to the WALLADS boys after a fantastic season: Kailen ELMOUMNI, Sam KRUEGER, Myles MENKENRICK, Harry PALMER, Harry TEBBUTT, Henry MOORCROFT, Jazz HEATH-SAWYERS & Sam FLYNN

It wasn’t easy though as Quarantine Ball & Real Brooksis are both strong sides looking to claim their first title and have been in the mix for the last few seasons!

In the Championship and another extremely close season which came down to the last week!
PasseyAggressive just needed to win to wrap up their the title and promotion, which they did with a strong performance in a 4-1 win!

This result meant Hot Steppers couldn’t take the title, however they needed to win to get promoted to the Premiership in their first season!
In a good competitive game, they got the three points they needed in a narrow 2-1 win meaning they will be joining PasseyAggressive in playing Premiership football in the new season.
Well done to Sariel BRISCOE-FRANCIS and his team of Hot Steppers!

Congratulations again to PASSEYAGGRESSIVE & HOT STEPPERS

WAS Utd in their first season gave a good account of themselves as well after a tough start they started to pick up some form and good results, no doubt Zak IKRAM’s side will be contenders in the new season!
However it wont be easy as OTF are another strong side who were in the mix while Woodford Greeners are another Championship side who are tough opponents in the forthcoming new season!
While new boys East London FC will be joining the mix as well! Looking forward to another competitive season at Eton Manor.

LOUGHTON THURSDAYS SEASON REVIEW

WHAT a season at Loughton Thursdays as we had first time winners in both divisions!

In the Prem and a much improved 7UP side proved to be the difference makers as they held 2 time Champions Pink Panthers to a draw in the second from last game which allowed IG10 Boys to jump in front going into the last game of the season!

IG10 Boys then just had to win their last game to guarantee their first ever title! However after a superb Starter Pack win over Pink Panthers this meant IG10 had wrapped the title up before they kicked a ball!

Huge congrats to the new Premiership Champions: Lloyd GULLEFER, Nakhue AZ, Casey LOCKHART, Alfie BINET, Louie COOPER, Louie HERBERT, Archie SHIPP, Teiye RICHARDS, Jacob RICHARDS & Ziad BAKAAR

The Premiership finished very close as 2 points ended up separating the top 3!

In the Championship and You cant handle the Huth finished strongly in their debut season after some dominant displays, only losing once all season meaning the are well deserved Championship Winners!

Well done to all the lads: Finn PICKERING, Peter MOLES, James BELFORD, Luke POWELL, Jessy HELLIS, Antonio VULLO & Volkan AKAR

In second and gaining promotion to the big time, Congratulations to Mendys Minions who put in a solid season to earn their place in the big time!

WANSTEAD MONDAYS – SEASON REVIEW

Another superb season at Eton Manor as we have two new first time champions in each division

In the Premiership and Quarantine Ball had their best season to date as they went down to the final game of the season hoping that three points bagged and a slip up from Bolted Wanderers would mean they take their first ever title in their Premiership return! In the end it wasn’t to be as Bolted Wanderers ended the season unbeaten with a 6-4-0 record to grab their first ever Prem title!

Well deserved as the finally found the consistency which they had missed in previous seasons to go on this strong run, they are now 16 games unbeaten going into the new season!

Massive shout to Quarantine Ball who ran them close and had a superb season, Toulouse orNot Toulouse in their first season in the Prem started off on fire but slipped away over the season as injuries mounted up, Real Brooksis had a tough season, which again due to injuries didn’t help.

Meta FC have done well since joining and are unbeaten, so will be looking to challenge for the title in the new season, while Filthy Fellas battled hard in their first season in a competitive division and represented themselves well, no doubt they will do well in the Championship!

Congratulations to the Premiership Champions – BOLTED WANDERERS: Dylan FAGAN, Alfie McDONALD, Alex DOE, Joe PARROTT, Tom BROWN, Barney KIERAN, Max PAINTER & Frankie LICHERI

In the Championship and Woodford Greeners smashed it this season, losing just once with a record of 9-0-1! Similar to Bolted, these lads found some consistency which had been missing in previous seasons.

Woodford Greeners

In the end it wasn’t a close title race as Woodford finished 9 points clear at the top!

OTF had a mixed season, when on form play some excellent football and will be looking to challenge for the title in the new season!

Hot Steppers have been superb since joining, playing some excellent football! They will also be hoping to challenge for the title in the new season no doubt as they have a talented squad.

PasseyAggressive can be happy with their debut season overall i think, but will be looking to improve on this that’s for sure

VLS are starting to find more consistency now as they have more of the squad back available and can beat anyone on their day

Just Vibes started to find a better balance towards the final weeks of the season and can play some superb football at times, great lads and looking forward to them re-joining the league in the near future

Once again, Congratulations to the Championship Winners – WOODFORD GREENERS: Oliver NADA aka “The Wall” in goal, Harrison NADA, Freddie PALMER, Dom BEALES were solid at the back all season. In midfield and Skipper Beau STRIEBIG, Chris SIBLEY & Zac OVERTON worked hard in the midfield to supply opportunities for the main goal scorers, Max WENZEL, Aidan BUTLER & Harry HUTCHINS
