Latest news from the Essex FA

The Essex FA have set up several midweek FA Level One courses, due to demand, with three new courses taking place in the first half of 2014.

Shenfield, Halstead and Collier Row will host courses, with dates and venues booked in response to requests from grassroots football volunteers who are unable to attend courses at weekends.

The first of the three, at Shenfield High School, starts on Tuesday February 18, while further Level One courses begin at Halstead Town FC on Monday April 7 and the Forest Row Centre on Tuesday May 27.

Ian Bent, senior football development officer at the Essex FA, said: “We’re always looking for ways to make our courses more accessible, and we analyse the response we receive from our regular surveys to see if there’s any way we think we can improve.

“We received feedback that the dates, times and venues for our Level Ones needed to be more varied, so if the response is good to these three we may schedule more in midweek.”
