Arsenal (A) – Feb.3rd – 5:30pm

APPLY NOW PLEASE – We will have a limited number of match tickets available from our usual sources, all members may apply of course but inevitably there will not be enough tickets to go around and as usual priority will be given to those hardy regulars who have followed Everton all over the country (and other countries) this season.

Eric Moonman (29 April 1929 – 22 December 2017)

All his friends in ESCLA will be saddened to hear that Eric died last week. Our condolences and thoughts go out to Josh and Eric’s family.

Eric was ESCLA chairman from 1991 to 2014 and he served our club in that the role with as much dedication as he gave offices of much greater importance that he held both nationally and internationally, he was an ESCLA member to the end. Britain has lost a Statesman, Everton have lost a fervent supporter, ESCLA has lost a friend.



FA Cup Jan 5th – LIVERPOOL – The Horseshoe EC1

Unofficial ESCLA  HQ is the place to watch the match in the company of other Blues – no Red Noses admitted it will be Blues only.
The Horseshoe Pub – 24 Clerkenwell  Close, London EC1R 0AG – it would be helpful if you intend watching there to e-mail Rob and let him know –

Contacting Pete re: Match Tickets 2017/18

99% of match ticket applications now come in by e-mail – – 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.
