Here is how the Essex Senior League for 2014/15 will line-up with just the one change being title winner's Great Wakering Rovers making a return to the Ryman Division One (North) who are replaced by Waltham Forest who finished second bottom of that division last campaign.
A name change on the cards to Newham FC
London APSA, subject to approval from The Football Association, will be renamed 'Newham FC' from the start of the season. This will reflect the London borough they have played in since formation in 1993.
In other news Enfield 1893 FC will be under new management as Luke Giddings has stepped down due to increased work commitments after one season in charge. Paul Norris, who has assisted him, has made the step up into the hot-seat at Goldsdown Road.
Takeley FC also have a new manager in charge with Duncan Easley moving from Royston Town where he has been Assistant Manger since 2008.
Waltham Forest joining the Essex Senior League
There is also new backroom staff at Bowers and Pitsea with Rob Small making the move up from Essex Olympian League champions Southminster St Leonards. Harry Stevens will assist him alongside coaches Mark Hunter and Stuart Fergus.
Clapton FC, who had one of their best season's in living memory in 2013/14, will also be under new management following the departure of Chris Woods. This decision was firmly opposed by the famous Clapton Ultra fan group. Marc Nurse will be Head of Football Development and Manager assisted by Stuart Purcell.
