TO celebrate the 125th anniversary of the Essex County Football Association's existence this season, an appeal has been made for football photographs and memorabilia to revive the glory of previous decades on the covers of the next county handbook and magazine.

Plans are afoot for commemorative editions to be produced and ECFA press and publicity officer Chris Evans is hunting for snaps to create special covers to mark the association's birth in 1882.

He said: “We know there are plenty of fantastic artefacts and photos out there in people's lofts and at the back of cupboards, so we'd like the opportunity to feature some of the best items in the forthcoming 2007/08 handbook and the winter edition of the ECFA magazine.”

You can e-mail scans of photos or artefacts, in as high a resolution as possible, to chris.evans@essexfa.com, or post them, with return details enclosed, to Chris Evans, Essex County Football Association, The County Office, Springfield Lyons Approach, Chelmsford, Essex, CM2 5LB. For further details, telephone 01245 393085.
