The South East Counties League came into being this season following the playing of the South East Counties Cup during the past three seasons and the associations with the FA Youth Cup competition. The South East Counties League Cup was played on a league basis last season with the top four teams contesting the Semi-Finals and Final on a knock-out basis. The league tournament has been made a 20-match competition for the eleven entrants and the knock-out Cup will be an addition.

All players in the competition must be under-18 on the 1st September in the current season, and may be either amateur or professional.

CIVIL SERVICE JUNIORS : FA Youth Cup (Third Round)

Upton Park

1 - 0 (St Pierre)

20 December 1954

Our Colts' XI match against Civil Service Juniors in the Third Round of the F.A. Youth Cup was played by floodlight, having been postponed on December 8th owing to the rain rendering the ground unfit.

A goal by Bill St. Pierre in the first half proved sufficient to lake our youngsters into the next stage of the competition, but the margin might well have been greater but for some excellent "keeping by the opposing custodian added to some missed opportunities. However, it was an interesting match, and our steady defence maintained their record of not conceding a goal so far in this season's tourney.

We are now in the last 16, and visit Chelsea Colts in the next round.
