Just thought I'd question the sense of having Flackwell Heath play in a league that is mainly Essex/Herts/Suffolk with a few East London teams. Surely it would've made more sense promoting another ESL team, or a team from Herts.
Nothing against Flackwell, but surely that defeats the object of having the leagues locallised.


On a post on the Barking & East Ham forum it says that the ESL and Southern league were approached for a replacement but both leagues refused to release a team.

"From tonight's Ryman League AGM.
Barking FC have apparently gone bust, and been replaced in Ryman 1 North by Flackwell Heath, who finished 4th in Ryman 2 last season, and had been voted into the Spartan South Midlands League only last Saturday! Barking, as reformed, are going into the Essex Senior League. Apparently it was first expected that the ESL would provide Barking's replacement at Step 4, but they refused to release anyone. Also, the Southern League were asked to swap Brook House for Flackwell Heath, but they also refused."

Interesting. I suppose that means the ESL has about... ooo, eight teams now?

Brook House - sounds like some statley mansion. Might have made an educational day out!

What are you going on about? Don't be a pleb. For staters, I bloody hope I was walking twelve years ago, 'cause otherwise there was some serious deficiances in my upbringing.
I fail to see what CIFC has got to do with my opinion of the ESL. Last time I looked the ESL only had about ten teams, so I'm hardly talking out of my [****!!****].
In fact last season there were fifteen and next season it'll probably be less given the few that went up to the Ryman North.

That's irrelevant now. I'd like to know what his problem is though.

Does it really matter what he thinks. Just ignore the fool!

Obviously has either a niggling problem being in the Essex Senior League or cannot understand banter and light hearted comments which have no nastiness about them whatsoever when looking at an internet forum where words and comments can be misunderstood.

And before he starts, NO, i wasn't having a dig at the Essex Senior League. I was probably 3 foot taller than him at the time of my watching Canvey in that league and i respect the fact that we were in it. Doesn't mean i want to bloody go back to it!
