Interested in Season 2018-19?
The website is getting to where I feel it needs to be right now. The look plus the content seem in balance and I am as pleased as I can be after a lot of hard work. Many of our teams have done tremendously well in external competition so well done to Asianos, Manor House, Global, Belfry & AC Milano, JK Silvertown & Hillford for flying the ESFC flag as high as you have done. If there is anything you'd like highlighted on this website then get in contact and I'll see what I can do.
Charitable Act by upcoming Hammers boxer
MARK LITTLEI have been following this guys career with great interest and being a fellow Hammer, I know that he has the dedication, grit and determination to succeed. His current record of 7 wins from seven fights is a fantastic achievement and shows there is plenty left to come.
Mark is also friends with the League, the Chairman and I met him for a chat at the J Lizzimore Cup Final last Sunday and discussed the ESFC (he had taken time out of his busy training schedule to come along and support a few of his friends in the final) and his own career.
The League are proud to have Mark as a supporter and friend and, in turn, we are proud to give you details of his next bout as shown below. Mark will also be a guest of the Essex Sunday Football Combination at a future final where you can meet and discuss tickets for the fight. It's going to be a fantastic night at the York Hall.
And if you are in any doubt as to the man's heart this will be the second fight in a row where he will be donating 20% of his purse to the Isla Caton Fund, a charity set up to send this fabulous little girl to the USA and also to receive treatment as she suffers from the horrendous neuroblastoma. Now you can do your bit and treat yourselves to a night out and support Mark in his eighth fight.
Hammers, just two days before my London 10k for @Dylantombides, I'll be boxing again at York Hall with 20% going to @islasfight— Mark Little ⚒ (@marklittle2) April 2, 2018
Even David Haye said I had the best fans at my last fight, your support is career changing ⚒
