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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

Essex CC v Surrey Day 3 – Event 36

My ideal week would involve watching all 3 days of the Essex v Surrey friendly, however a commitment to a photo shoot if you please, meant I had to miss Day 2.   Rather than sit and watch cricket in the horrendous wind I spent the day at Frinton and Walton dressed for summer having my photo taken along with […]

Essex CC v Surrey CC – Event 35

The cricket season is nearly here!!  If I’m honest this blog grew from my love of the game, I was literally brought up at the side of a cricket pitch, some of my earliest memories involve my Dad in whites playing the game on what always seemed to be bright summer days.     That of course won’t have been […]
