ESSEX 035’s March 25th Stage 2 Match Report Featured

Team: Paul Wallace, Lee Jemmett, David Smith, Cliff Bennett, Anthony Savage, Stacey Thickbroom
Essex travelled to Maidstone eyeing up promotion into the Premier Division. Also looking to gain promotion was Ulster, Nottinghamshire and Host’s Kent.
I was certainly expecting us to do well. Since 2015 Essex 035’s have won all their matches bar one and that was against Kent in 2016. However in 2017 / Stage 1 we turned this around and beat Kent.

Well Done ESSEX Men's o'55's Featured

Inter County o55's Finals Weekend – Pontefract

Essex veterans travelled to up the A1 to Yorkshire to compete in the rearranged Inter County Finals weekend, bidding to be the first Essex Masters team in 42 years to win a National title. Originally scheduled for February, the new dates meant that two of the team couldn't make it due to prior commitments. But our team was strong, willing and able...and the venue was the famous Pontefract Club. Products of the club are such players as James Willstrop, a recent Commonwealth Games gold medal winner and former world no 1.

Essex storm to Finals Weekend!!
Essex Men’s o55’s travelled to Dulwich Sports Club for Phase 1 of the Premier Division clash. Opened by Roger Bannister in 1972, the club was busy all weekend with sport. Surprisingly early in the calendar, we only had a few weeks to prepare - and despite a couple of drop outs and availability issues we went with a strong team. The top two teams would go to Nottingham next year to contest the Final and be crowned National Champions.
