Essex Eagles v Gloucestershire – Event 75

My Friday, in other words, Thursday, saw another Essex T20 Blast fixture, this time the visitors were Gloucestershire.  The joys of having the County Ground on my doorstep meant I had time to pop home after work before heading to the Members parking at Meteor Way. I’d chosen unallocated seating, which on this glorious evening meant sitting in the shade! […]

Surrey v Essex Eagles T20 Blast – Event 73

Friday night means T20 Blast!  I really didn’t engage my brain when I wrote the Surrey v Essex fixture in my diary.  For some stupid reason I interpreted the match as a Royal London day time fixture, when I paid £99 for a Take That ticket! Naturally when it came down to making a choice between cricket and music the […]

Essex v Ravi’s All Stars – Event 72

Having been to Alistair Cook’s Benefit Match at The County Ground last year it was a total no brainer to go to the T20 match between Essex and Ravi’s All Stars!  The evening promised a wealth of world class cricketers. In fact the morning after I still can’t believe such a plethora of cricketing superstars were on the same pitch […]

The Ravi Bopara Benefit Dinner – Event 71

With my decision to make 2015 a huge sporting year I kept a good eye on the events taking place  for Ravi Bopara’s Benefit year.  I just couldn’t resist his benefit dinner at The Grange Hotel St Paul’s in London. A huge added bonus was the presence of Kevin Pieterson – how controversial would he be when talking after dinner? […]

Bath Rugby v Saracens – Event 69

I know I keep saying I’m going to make these blogs a Phlog – lots of photos not so many words – but I can’t seem to stop typing one I start! But, for Event 69 I really do mean it – Bath Rugby v Saracens – The Premiership Final!  Something of a big game! I’ve already written my view […]

Essex CCC v Somerset CCC – Event 68

Friday evening and it was T20 Blast time again – this time it was all about local cricket – Essex Eagles v Somerset (No fancy Name) – I’m going to mix my T20’s up a bit this year so won’t be at all of the Essex games, but this one I just had to go to! Essex v Chris Gayle […]

Middlesex v Kent , – Event 67

After a rugby league fest it was time for a more leisurely pursuit, during the Easter holidays I’d had a quiet day, that generally has me looking for sports fixtures.  I already had my Essex and Surrey dates pencilled into my diary so looked further afield. Lords – The Home of Cricket is a place I along with many others […]

Doncaster v Hunslet Hawks – Event 65

Game 2 saw Doncaster sitting rock bottom with 13 games and 13 losses take on Hunslet lying 9th with 4 wins from their 12 games. A mention of lunch before I carry on – same sort of pasta as the Waitrose fare the day before – but this time a Sainsbury’s fork!  It lasted!  Hooray!  I also ate the very […]

Bradford Bulls v Halifax – Event 63

In common with Magic Weekends the final game of the day tends to be set of as the one that should be the best on the day. With that in mind we had Bradford Bulls v Halifax to look forward to. Bulls relegated along with Broncos had fared better in the league with 11 wins from their 12 games played, […]

Workington Town v Whitehaven – Event 61

With the iPro Sport Cup decided game 2 for the day was upon us – Workington Town v Whitehaven. The Summer Bash would showcase every team in the Kingstone Press Championship. With 6 games to post about there will be more photos fewer words that some are used to. Game 1 pitted 10th place Workington against 11th place Whitehaven – […]
