A football team finally have a nickname.

Fans of Maldon and Tiptree FC will be able to support The Jammers from the terraces, rather than plain old Maldon, the club's previous nickname.

Richard Buckby, who runs the team’s website and Twitter accounts, decided they could do with a more interesting moniker than Maldon and asked fans for suggestions.

Chairman Ed Garty chose the four finalists -The River Boys, The Marshmen, The Jammers and The Mudmen - and there was a public vote.

There were 38 votes, with 53% favouring The Jammers, which was suggested by John Hunter.
