Andrei Kanchelskis @ The Horseshoe – Nov 21st

Hi all,

Hope you are all enjoying the season so far.
Still in Europe, only 7 points off Champions League places…ooh how exciting.
So, to try and keep as positive as possible, I have great news…
The legend Andrei Kanchelskis is indeed coming to the Horseshoe in Clerkenwell.
He is in great company of course..why?..because you will hopefully be here too.
Yes you!! The Everton fans , and why the hell not.
He will be talking about scoring at Anfield..that’s all ..nothing else is there???Two goals at Anfield is all I need ha ha .
He of course will be signing his book also, so why not come along and treat yourself to an early Christmas present.
Now tickets may be rare as ESCLA have only 40 tickets to this event.
Rangers London fan club also have 40 tickets so its going to be a joint venture, although he did prefer Everton than any other team and he has an ESCLA tattoo on his chest near his heart….honest, ..you can trust me..
Tickets are £5 for members of ESCLA and £10 for non members…Please remember to bring along your membership card on the night if you buy the discounted ticket on the site otherwise you will be charged the higher fee.
So going forward. Im still trying to get Peter Reid down to also do a signing, and then next year I will have a look and see who else wants to come along.
I know Joe Parkinson will hope to be at the Horseshoe signing autographs and getting involved in selfies before the Arsenal away match,,,more info when I have it.
Here is the link for the tickets.,I hope to see a few of you here for a great night.
Best wishes

In Memory of Paul McClean

Many of you will have seen the news of the untimely death of ESCLA member Paul McClean. Paul’s funeral took place last Friday.
In lieu of floral tributes, Paul’s family have requested donations to the Anthony Nolan Trust and Royal Marsden Hospital – ESCLA will be making a donation on behalf of the membership but if anyone has felt moved by the death of this talented young man at only 24 years of age and would like to make an individual donation, please follow the link below.


People will need to enter Paul McClean to access his unique donation page.


Contacting Pete re: Match Tickets 2017/18

99% of match ticket applications now come in by e-mail – peter@leachweb.co.uk – which actually makes applications easier to keep track of and is my preferred method.
Therefore the ESCLA phone line is almost redundant – so I am no longer restricting phone calls – members wishing to phone may do so at ANY time ( the first comedian who tries me at 3 in the morning will be liquidated). HOWEVER – most times you will find the messaging service in use, I will no longer man the phone at set hours, I will answer it if I am close by, otherwise leave me a message and I’ll get back to you – eventually.

Premier League Match Tickets at Goodison 2017/18

For your consideration – we are not pushing EFC membership schemes !

Basically every Premier League game at Goodison this season will be sold out. Season Ticket sales already account for a situation in which there are very limited tickets available. Everton’s membership scheme, rebranded this season as “Get More Everton” – offers first refusal on match tickets – and it is extremely unlikely match tickets will make it to general sale to non-members of the scheme. EFC v Stoke sold out within hours  of being put on sale to members.
