As part of a 14 team Northern conference, ECFC teams play a 21- game annual league schedule. Our 6 teams will both host or travel together helping forge an unparallelled allegiance and brotherhood amongst clubmates.

U15-U19 groups return to training and competition at the completion of their respective high school season. With High School participation supported, players are able to represent their towns and local communities, enjoying the social benefits this brings, before returning to club competition upon the completion of their seasons.
