These pages contain brief history of the Essex Olympian Football League.

The information contained within these pages, whilst not going into great detail, will, I hope, act as a reference for those interested in the development of what is now the National League System Step 7 league within Essex.

As well as a narrative section describing some of the events in each season, the pages contain the League Tables, Cup winners and, where available, full details of each clubs matches.

Unfortunately Cup records and League Match Results are not readily available for many of the earlier years.

If any readers come across any errors or are able to provide us with any additional information relating to a particular season, we would be pleased to hear from you.
