History


The league was established in 1903 as the South East Anglian League. The founder member clubs were Chelmsford City, Colchester Crown, Colchester Town, Harwich & Parkeston and Ipswich Town, with Ipswich winning the inaugural league title. In 1908 it was renamed the East Anglian League. By the 1960s the league was dominated by clubs from Norfolk and in 1964 it merged with the Norfolk & Suffolk League (also largely consisting of Norfolk-based clubs) to form the Anglian Combination.[1]
