In recent weeks there has been much speculation about Clapton and it’s future position in the Essex Senior League.

As far as the club and management team are concerned, our position is clear and we can confirm that following the Annual General Meeting of the League on Thursday (22nd June), Clapton Football Club has been elected into the Essex Senior League Premier Divison for the 2017-18 season. Our home venue will continue to be the Old Spotted Dog Stadium, 212 Upton Lane, London E7 9NP.

With all the hard work being put in in all areas, our second place position in the 2016-17 is something that we will continue to build upon – we still have our sights set on being promoted to the Ryman League in the future.

Watch this space for more updates on our preparations for the start of the season, pre-season dates, Jerry’s testimonial, the re-establishment of Clapton’s U18 and U16 teams and more.
