ESCLA AGM June 29th

This years AGM kicks off at 1:30 at the Horseshoe Pub, 24 Clerkenwell Close, London EC1 .
Attending will be Graham Stuart who has been to a few ESCLA occasions and is always a great favourite with members, and Darren Griffiths (Everton’s Media and Publications Manager).
Guest Speaker is Mark Pembridge and we hope to see lots of you along to enjoy what should be a great afternoon in the company of fellow Blues.
Mark Pembridge
Mark played 101 times for Everton between 1999 and 2003, he came to us after a spell at Benfica.
Mark’s first two seasons at Everton were very successful, his tenacious approach and thrusting runs from deep made him a favourite with the fans. A persistent calf injury restricted him to 13 games 2001–02 and with the injury still troublesome during the 2002–03 season, Mark still played his part in a dramatic season which ended in disappointment as Everton failed to qualify for a UEFA Cup place on the final day.

ESCLA Football Club Progress

24th June
A message from Rob
Thank you to everyone that turned up at the 1st ever Everton football fans in London Football Team meeting last night.
We will now be taking some training sessions to get know each other and hopefully find out if we can indeed get the required 18-20 players committed to play in the APFSCIL Football League this season.
I understand it is holiday season, but with just over 5 weeks till the league starts, we do need to get in some training and sort out positions etc.
It was especially nice to meet up with Andrei Kanchelskis Jr last night who had many stories about his dad, It will be a pleasure having Andrei in the team and believe me, he is his own man,.
Training will be at the OLD FOOTBALL PITCHES at HYDE PARK with a strict 8pm start.We have just one hour so please turn up on time.
We will be meeting at The Tattersalls Tavern, a Greene King boozer from 7pm: (1 Knightsbridge Green, Knightsbridge, London SW1X 7QA) and then we can walk over the road together after a little chat and a beer.
Please bring proper attire, no Metal Studs please…We will also meet up here the following 2 Wednesday’s at the same time.
I look forward to seeing you all next week.

Everton Membership Package Deal

EFC have sent us the info shown here –  EFC offer supporters clubs the option of taking a group package or allowing their members to apply individually – ESCLA have decided on the individual option as we don’t have anyone able to take on administration of the scheme, but more importantly, some key elements of membership are only available to individual applicants (such as live match streaming and match crediting)  as you will see if you read the blurb.
