Essex CCC – Champions 2019

With 2020 here, this is a good time to look back on a great summer for Essex, one that ended with them lifting the County Champions Trophy! This is my 2019 Wickets, Shots and Joy post! The season started with a loss at Hampshire for Essex, with Hampshire scoring a huge 525 for 8, I wasn’t there to see one […]

Essex County Cricket Squad 2019

The cricket season is here which means media days across the country, after a week of T shirt weather it was truly chilly for the Essex session. This is an opportunity to take photos of the Ability squad, the Women’s squad and of course the First Team squad. With a chance to set eyes on new kits and clothing ranges […]

England v India – The Oval – Day 4

As BBC TMS are replaying this memorable test for England and of course Essex favourite Alastair Cook, here’s a look back at that day in words and photos. Day 4 was the day of the horror journey to The Oval for me (it was about a lot more than that, but let’s get the journey out of the way)  It […]

England v India – The Oval – Day 3

I arrived at The Oval for Day 3 having had a smooth journey, and to find two fellow Essex friends Mike and Mary sat next to me for the day!  That was a nice surprise!  What was to come during the day was also a nice surprise. India started the day on 174 for 6, it looked like we wouldn’t […]

England v India – The Oval – Day 1

I wasn’t able to write up this match on a daily basis and have been torn over how to do this Final Test justice.  For my own ‘records’ I’m going to go day by day so I can post photos from each of the 5 days. i decided last summer that it was cheaper and more convenient to stay close […]

England v Pakistan Day 1 – Lords

I have something of a bee in my bonnet so I’m going to do the writing before the photos again!  All done, photos galore!   I’ve had the most wonderful day at Lords, largely in part to the most wonderful invitation I received from a cricketing friend Nigel and his friend Ammar.  They very kindly invited to me to join […]

England v South Africa – Day 1 – The Oval

As a Surrey and England member I have an allocated seat in the OCS Stand for Test matches, I’ve been able to swap into the pavilion each time however.  For this test I was in the front row of the lower tier behind the bowlers arm. The second test had been something of a disappointment at Trent Bridge I was […]

Essex County Cricket Club 2017 Squad

The Essex Media Day took place 2 days before the County season started, a season which will see the county play in Division 1 having won Division 2 in 2016.  As a Saracens fan I’m very well aware of how much of a difference the right dressing room atmosphere makes.  What was plain to see was that this is a […]

England v Sri Lanka – Lords Day 4

Having received my ticket for Day 1 of the 3rd and Final Test between England and Sri Lanka I kept my eye on my e-mails from Twelfth Man and Lords for news of tickets for the other days.  Day 4 was available so it seemed rude not to go for it! When I was getting ready for my first trip […]
