Essex Eagles v Sussex Sharks

Something special happened at the Could County Ground when Ravi Bopara and his Sharks came to town. I still can’t get used to Ravi playing for another team, I’m not a fan of that, at all! Ravi won the toss and elected to field, he was asked who’d returned to the team and to my delight, as a fan of […]

Essex Eagles v Middlesex

I’m going to try to write this one as the game goes along; Saracens, my rugby union team play in their Premiership Semi-Final tomorrow, so a busy writing weekend! Essex go into this game with a loss away to Hampshire, and Middlesex a loss at home to Surrey. Both will be keen to get a win under their belts. To […]

Essex Eagles v Kent Spitfires

A night at the Young Vic watching Oklahoma means I’m writing this 2 days after the match, having just watched Essex lose to Hampshire at the Ages Bowl, so, honours even on that rivalry. (This is going to be lots of photos, not so many words) I’d travelled to Canterbury to watch an Essex win and was hoping for the […]

Essex Eagles v Hampshire

My second T20 of the season saw Essex’s second win, they’d travelled to Taunton to make 139 for 9 in the 18 available overs. Michael Pepper and Matt Critchley put on 76 for the 3rd wicket but it all went wrong after that. Pepper scored 37 from 24 and Critchley 60 from 38. But the other 9 scored 14 and […]

Kent Spitfires v Essex Eagles

A crazy busy sporting weekend which involved a trip to Canterbury for this match, The Challenge Cup Final at the New Spurs Stadium, then Middlesex v Glamorgan at Radlett, followed by a Tuesday evening watching Essex again, means it’s taken ,me until now to have photos edited. The night of Essex’s trip to Glamorgan, a game that as I write […]

Essex Eagles v Worcestershire Rapids

A second visit to the county ground in Chelmsford in a week, what a treat! The day promised no rain, which meant a bigger crowd than the one that came to watch Essex beat Middlesex. Tom Westley won the toss and put Worcs in to bat. With Sam Cook away with the Trent Rockets and Jamie Porter presumably injured the […]

Essex Eagles – T20 Blast 2019

Last night The Essex Eagles beat The Kent Spitfires to finish on 15 points, putting them in 4th place in the Southern Table, earning themselves a place in the quarter finals. A match against Lancashire at the Emirates Riverside in Durham. In their wisdom the ECB has scheduled the quarter finals to coincide with the Ashes test at Old Trafford. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Middlesex v Essex – RLODC

With the England matches starting in late May I planned to go to Lords to watch Middlesex play Essex in the Royal London One Day Cup, it’s a good job I worked out they were actually playing at Radlett! (photos from the Middlesex innings included, Essex innings to follow) There was clearly an issue on the M25, but my Satnav […]

Essex v Surrey T20 Blast

The T20 Blast started for Essex with a Friday night match at the Cloud FM County Ground, London rivals Surrey were the opposition.  That held double interest for me, I’m an Essex member and fan, but also a Surrey member so I have a regard for them too. Ryan ten Doeschate won the toss and put Surrey in to bat, […]

Kent Spitfires v Essex Eagles – Event 78

Having never been to Canterbury to watch Essex play I decided to head down after work for their T20 clash with Kent.  I may have been a bit foolhardy, I hadn’t really considered how far away Canterbury is! Typically the day was one full of accidents all over the M25 and M2, the M25 had cleared but not the M2 […]
