ChampionsNorwich United

The 2014–15 Eastern Counties Football League season (known as the 2014–15 Thurlow Nunn Eastern Counties Football League for sponsorship reasons) was the 73rd in the history of Eastern Counties Football League, a football competition in England. Teams are divided into two divisions; the Premier and the First.

Premier Division[edit]

The Premier Division remained at 20 clubs, and featured three new teams after the promotion of Brightlingsea Regent to the Isthmian League, the resignation of Cambridge Regional College and the relegation of Woodbridge Town to the First Division:[1]

The following four clubs applied for promotion to Step 4:[2] Godmanchester Rovers, Haverhill Rovers, Norwich United and Stanway Rovers. However, Norwich United, Godmanchester Rovers and Stanway Rovers all withdrew from the process, and with Haverhill Rovers outside the top three, it meant that no team would be promoted from the league for the first time since the 2007-08 season.[3][4][5]
