1954-55 Briggs Sports 5 Woodford Town 1 in results Monday 22 August 1955 so presumably played 20 August

1956-57 final was Briggs v Aveley or Rainham.

Briggs won 2-0 at Dagenham in one semi on 15 April; the other semi is in the scheduled fixtures for 13 April. Can't find the result or the final and tried searching on Briggs through into the Autumn in case it was held over.

Just two finals to sort now.

1956-57 – Briggs Sports vs. Aveley or Rainham Town (S/F April 15)

1970-71 – Ilford or Ford United vs. Tilbury on May11 – Ford claim to have won it; however, Tilbury claim to have lost 2-3 to Ilford! What’s more confusing is that the following season’s papers mention Tilbury as holders! Tilbury did score two goals in the final (Dunwell and Flood), so was it a 2-1 win or a 2-3 loss?

Resolved the two problem seasons.

1970-71 was indeed Ilford 3-2 Tilbury.

Ford United added to the growing list of clubs claiming honours they haven't won! On the night of the final, Ford was playing a league match vs. Canvey.

1956-57
semi-finals
April 13 - Aveley 1-0 Rainham Town
April 15 - Dagenham 0-2 Briggs Sports
final
May 1 - Briggs Sports 3-0 Aveley
