The Foxes successfully appealed decision to vote them out of the Essex Senior League

Ilford have been reinstated into the Essex Senior League with immediate effect after successful appealing the decision to vote them out of the competition.

Last month the Foxes were voted out of the division at the Annual General Meeting after several missed deadlines for overdue league fees and fines.

Allan Fenn’s team confirmed they were looking to appeal the decision and this morning they had a hearing in front of an FA Panel.

After both sides had their cases heard, it was confirmed that Ilford had been allowed back into the Essex Senior League.

Fenn has made a number of impressive signings this summer, so will be delighted with the decision ahead of the campaign starting on July 29.

It is now expected that fixtures for the 2017/18 Essex Senior League season will be published at some point this week.

And Fenn and everyone involved at Ilford will be thrilled to see their name among the list of teams competing in the division.
