The 1993 British Youth American Football Association Youth Kitted League was won by Southend Sabres for the second year in a row. The defending Champions made light work of Heathrow Jets in the Final, winning 44-6. Prior to that they had defeated Birmingham Bulls in the Quarter-Finals. The Sabres were Champions of the Anglian Conference where they tied a game with Norwich Devils 0-0, the only game they failed to win all year. After the season they made the step up to the British American Football Association Senior League, and the Youth team merged with Basildon Chiefs to form Essex Youth. Basildon Chiefs themselves had made the step up the the YKL from playing only friendlies in 1992.

The Chiefs were one of six entirely new teams in the YKL for 1993 with Haven Raiders (Boston, 0-3), Cambridge Cobras (1-3), Leicester Hurricanes (1-3-1), Gloster Gladiators (0-4) and Brent who folded after one game being the others. In all there were 27 teams, up from two in 1992, the six new teams replacing Ipswich Cardinals, Brighton B-52s, Folkestone Wolverines and Tiptree Titans for 1993. Southern Sun Devils replaced Eastleigh Devils, Milton Keynes Predators replaced Milton Keynes Mavericks. Luton Huskers moved to Bedford.
