Latest news from the Essex FA

Players aged nine or ten in school year five are being invited to Futsal training on Thursdays from 6:30-8pm at Barking & Dagenham College in Dagenham Road, Rush Green.

With a smaller, weighted ball and a smaller pitch - encouraging better close control, teamwork and possession on the floor - each player will touch the ball many more times during a game of Futsal than they do even in mini-soccer.

If you’re interested, supply your child’s full name and date of birth together with your telephone number and address by phone on (07803) 127559 or via email at info@teamfutsal.com.

It’s £5 per session, and volunteers are welcome.

May & Baker Eastbrook Community FC are planning a five-a-side football competition on Saturday June 21, and clubs are welcome to apply for places.

The tournament will be based in Dagenham Road (RM7 0QX), seven players are permitted per squad and registration details can be obtained by calling Ray Wright on (07504) 339882 or by sending an email to mwright@cvc.com.

Dagenham & Redbridge are hosting the Dagenham Community Day on Sunday May 18 and hoping to build upon last year’s event which attracted over 1,000 people who enjoyed the attractions, displays and entertainment.

In 2014, the committee are planning a five-a-side competition on the Daggers’ pitch, children’s fancy dress and stalls in the car park for all the family to enjoy.

The event will run between 11am and 4pm, and anyone interested in running a stall at the event should call Lisa on 020 8532 7329 or email lisa.flannery@bdcvs.org.uk.

Are you in need of a new kitchen? Try our competition and you could win a brand new one!

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.
