A football club is looking for a nickname.

Fans currently call Maldon and Tiptree FC just plain old Maldon.

Richard Buckby, who runs the team’s website and Twitter accounts, said: “The merger happened in 2010/11 between the two clubs, which were Maldon Town and Tiptree United.

“Before that, Maldon were called the Blues and Tiptree the Jam Makers.”

He has asked for ideas for a new nickname which encompasses both Maldon and Tiptree.
