The Royal London Cup – Star Men Watch – Day 9

A Sunday and 7 matches, one of which I was at (You can probably guess which!) I’m sitting down to write this as Line of Duty is on the TV, I have work in the morning, so bed will be calling. However I’ve become slightly obsessed with getting these written and out on the same day, so, a facts based, […]

The Royal London Cup – Star Men Watch – Round 4

Today I surprised myself by choosing to stay at home with my daughter who’s visiting from Paris rather than going to the Oval to watch Surrey v Essex. That meant I kept track online and missed out on what proved to be a low scoring game. There was no cricket yesterday, on Easter Monday, today on a working day there […]

Essex Eagles v Middlesex

Good Friday and a glorious day saw a local derby played against a decent crowd at the Cloud FM County Ground. This was in effect Round 2 of the Royal London Cup, in Round 1 all 6 teams who batted first went on to win the game, including Essex against Glamorgan. Ryan ten Doeschate won the toss for Essex and […]

The Royal London One Day Cup – Star Men watch!

I wasn’t going to do this, it may be hard to keep up with things in the next few weeks, but, I just have to, there have been some stand out performances today! Including a century from my favourite player outside of Essex and one for an Essex opener too. There were 6 matches today, in 4 of those the […]

Surrey v Essex -Day 2

I’d hoped for 3 things before this day started, for Ryan Patel to get his maiden century, for Surrey to be all out promptly and for the Essex batsmen to start well. 2 of those things happened, Patel was playing in only his 22nd First Class innings and wow he played a superb role. He batted for 375 minutes, that’s […]

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 […]

Surrey v Essex

I’m going to try to do this one differently, get the writing done before I tackle the photos (I took over 4000, they’re going to take some time!).  I joined as a Surrey and England member before the last home Ashes, over those years I’ve managed to get to a few home games and therefore acquired one of those soft […]

Essex v India Day 3

This final day of the warm up match between Essex and India was all a bit surreal.  The day started with Paul Walter and James Foster at the crease.  Foster is clearly a very experienced cricketer who did play for England, if not as many times as he really should.  Walter on the other hand has only 10 First Class […]
