Kelvedon Hatch Football Club visits The Saturday Kickabout!

Gerry Presland (below right) from Kelvedon Hatch Football Club with Bully

In 1920 Kelvedon Hatch Football Club was formed to enable the local boys, of what was then a very small Essex village, to play organised football. The Club continued up to the war years, when, like so many other clubs, it was temporarily disbanded to then be subsequently re-formed in 1946.

Kelvedon Hatch played for many years in local football leagues until the mid 1970’s at which time it applied to join the Greene King South Essex League. The Club was admitted to the Greene King South Essex League where it continued to play for many years.

In order to progress, the Club applied for membership to the Essex Olympian League (also known as the Essex Intermediate Football League between 1986/87 to 2004/05 seasons)and was admitted as a member in 1985.

The first few years in this League were spent in adjusting to the higher-grade football and setting about the task of recruiting better players to A****. with the progression of the Club. During a period of ten years the Club achieved outstanding success on the football field.

Gerry visited The Saturday Kickabout to chat to Bully about Kelvedon Hatch FC and the changes that are taking place in the next year.
