Ilford’s appeal to the Football Association has been successful, the club is reporting on their Twitter account.

Ilford were voted out of the ESL by their fellow member clubs, for a number of unpaid fines and the non-payment of league fees.

The club assured supporters that any outstanding debts had been paid, and it seems the FA agreed with them on this occasion.

The Essex Senior League will run at 21 teams this season, with fixtures expected out later this week.
