Surrey v Glamorgan T20 Blast – Event 56

The first T20 Blast games of the ‘summer’ gave me a chance to make my first visit to the Oval as a Surrey member. My home county Essex were playing Hampshire, a trip too far for 40 overs of cricket. Having discovered last year that a Surrey and England membership means you are guaranteed a chance to buy your seat […]

Saracens v Exeter Chiefs – Event 54

My 3rd game of the weekend was at Allianz Park – Saracens v Exeter Chiefs.  A leisurely breakfast in bed and I set off.  It turned out my hotel was very well placed for Allianz Park, the journey took me around 35 minutes. I had to be at the ground for 1ish to meet a group from the school I […]

Wasps v Leicester Tigers – Event 53

After a great game of rugby at the Stoop and a good nights sleep in my Premierinn room, it seems people really do take the whole shhhhh be quiet thing seriously which is great, it was time to head off to Coventry. I’d stayed in High Wycombe, which wasn’t really by design, but it meant I’d be replicating the journey […]

Harlequins v Bath Rugby – Event 52

A fixture change for Saracens saw me contemplating no sport until the Sunday, that didn’t feel like a plan so I checked out the Premiership Rugby fixture list. The penultimate weekend of the season proper had a list of mouthwatering fixtures, it felt rude not to watch a game a day over the weekend! And so a ticket was bought […]

Chelmsford City Racing – Event 51

Although the majority of my ‘Events’ will involve rugby of both codes and cricket I’m going to try and get a few other sports in there. From what I can remember an advert in a local free paper for the Chelmsford City Racecourse interested me. The course at Great Leighs just outside of Chelmsford, and 15 minutes maximum from where […]

Essex v Gloucestershire – Event 50

And so I reach Event 50 on the 4th May not bad going!  I wonder sometimes how I fit work in (hope my boss isn’t reading!) Having had a rugby packed weekend Bank Holiday Monday brought me a much calmer day in the form of Day 2 of the LV County Championship game between Essex and Gloucestershire. As I’ve mentioned […]

Under 15 Academy 12 A-Side competition – Event 49

Having experienced the heady heights of the Press Box at The Champions Cup Final at Twickenham, my next ‘Event’ was of a different kind, but just as important. I had planned to do my watching Essex Cricket in the morning and London Skolars in the afternoon thing again, but a message from Charles Beer a Twitter friend to tell me […]

Edinburgh Rugby v Gloucester – Event 47

Oh how I’d like to expand that title!  Edinburgh Rugby v Gloucester – The Challenge Cup Final!  The first time a Scottish team had been in a European Final and a chance for Gloucester to have some joy at the end of an average season. I will warn that this is going to be more of a match report than […]

Wasps v Exeter Chiefs – Event 46

Having been to Milton Keynes my next date was in Coventry at the Ricoh Arena – home of Wasps Rugby.  I was lucky enough to be stay the night with my lovely Saracens friends Steve and Clare. We had a great evening – I’m not too sure who was more shocked that I drank wine, me or them! And I […]

Northampton Saints v Saracens – Event 45

After an afternoon in London shocking my camera by taking photos with no element of sport involved whatsoever Saturday arrived and that meant rugby! Northampton Saints in conjunction with the RFU I imagine decided to play their home fixture against Saracens at Stadium MK in Milton Keynes. The game itself has become something of a draw as far as fans […]

Essex CC v Kent CC – Event 43

The joys of living in Chelmsford means I can go and watch Essex play cricket for a couple of hours at a time if that’s all I have available in my day. With plans to watch London Skolars in the afternoon I decided on watching the first session of the cricket. It’s lovely having a 10 minute trip to sport, […]

Kings of The North – Event 41

A Friday meeting I needed to attend at work means I was able to accept an invitation to go to Leicester for an unusual and exciting event. I had a leisurely morning – with a healthy breakfast (check my ‘lunch’ later!) before setting off for Leicester giving myself a good 3 hours to get there.     The journey was […]
