After all the dust has settled we can now congratulate Basildon and Phoenix for retaining the Division One title and becoming overall Essex League Champions for 2019 and Runnymede for securing the Division Two title.  See 2019 Results Page for details of the final round and end of season tables.

Results - Round Three  & Preview for the finals!

Official results for Round Three and the fteams for the final galas are now available.  See 2019 Results Page and 2019 Fixtures page.  

Squad changes for Basildon and Phoenix and the non-participation of Romford has left Division One nicely poised with Brentwood currently sitting at the top of Division One just one point ahead of Basildon.  Witham, Harlow  and Enfield are currently tightly packed in mid-table with just two points between all three clubs.   

In Division Two, another tight contest offers between Runnymede and Saffron Seals who are just one point apart and look likely to be fighting it out for the Division Two title.  At the other end of the table, Hornchurch and Leyton will be continuing their toe to toe tussle to decide who gets to take home the wooden spoon.  

It's all up for grabs in this final round and, even if you're not swimming, your vocal support from the balcony could make all the difference!!


Host Clubs for the final galas are:  Enfield (Division One) and Hornchurch (Division Two).  Clubs are reminded that a Host Club Guide is available on the Documents page to assist you in preparation and running of the gala.

Amended Results - Round One

Following clarification that Barking & Dagenham have decided not to compete in the league for the remainder of the season the ESL committee have decided to reassess the basis for points for the season.  The 2019 league will be run as if B&D had not entered.  The Divisions for Round Two will remain as previously announced but the points for the first round have been recalculated.  

Revised results for Round One are now available.  See 2019 Results Page.  

The ESL Gala Scoring sheet has been amended to reflect Division Two being run as a five team division for the remainder of the season.  Please do not use previous versions.
