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, […]

Surrey v Derbyshire – Event 122

Now then I have something of a confession to make before I get writing – yes, I was at The Oval for the afternoon, but I didn’t see all that much cricket – there, it’s out there! I wasn’t too well in the morning but was meeting a friend for lunch in the pavilion and knew this would be my […]

Essex CCC v Surrey CCC – Event 107

After a crazy few days which took me from Nottingham to Cardiff – as you do when you’re sports focussed and not – they’re miles apart focussed I was looking at a week – well 5 days without sport!  A quiet few days at home after driving a little under 800 miles seemed sensible. However Surrey were in Essex!  Well, […]

Surrey v Somerset T20 Blast – Event 92

I’m writing this after Event 93 – Day 4 of the Ashes Test at Lords – I’m quite relieved that I haven’t had time to write about the game at The Oval, it means I may have calmed down before I start that one! I’d bought tickets for my brothers to watch Somerset at the Oval in the belief that […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
