Eastern Counties Football League
Season2019–20

The 2019–20 Eastern Counties Football League, also known as the Thurlow Nunn League for sponsorship reasons, was the 77th season in the history of Eastern Counties Football League, a football competition in England. Teams are divided into three divisions, the Premier Division, Division One North and Division One South (Eastern Senior League).[1]

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, this season's competition was formally abandoned on 26 March 2020, with all results from the season being expunged, and no promotion or relegation taking place to, from, or within the competition.[2] On 30 March 2020, sixty-six non-league clubs sent an open letter to the Football Association requesting that they reconsider their decision.[3]
