The Week Ahead...
This Wednesday (22nd Nov), the 'A' team have a bye in the North Essex Plate competition and the next competitive match for Billericay, will take place the following week, when the 'B' team host Chelmsford 'E'.
As in recent seasons, Chelmsford 'A' and Maldon 'A' are both showing signs of being early contenders for the 2017/18 North Essex league title.
However, it is the Chelmsford 'B' team that currently leads at the top of Division 1 due to their strong start with 3 wins in their opening 4 games.
Meanwhile, in the Southend League, Basildon I and Southend I currently lead the Division 1 race, both having maximum points after their first three games. Billericay currently lie in 4th position, following their 5-1 loss at the hands of Southend.
