Stephen Gooch - Great Notley FC

"I would like to thank you from all at Great Notley FC for the use of your fantastic facility again and keeping the pitches in top condition for us. Will see you again around early September!"

Grahame Gardiner - Mannex FC

"I just wanted to thank you for all your help and support in the 2017/2018 season. I believe that we have been using Fox Burrows Lane as our home ground for 10 years or so now and it certainly feels like the home of the club now! I would like to register our intention to continue this arrangement for the 2018/2019 season."

Chris Finch - Chelmsford City FC

"Our adult disability football group love using the sports hall, it provides a safe environment that we can use all year round without having to get cold and wet."
