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.
