Inter Counties Championship – Men’s o55’s Premier Division Phase 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.

Essex Men's over 50's triumph in Kent Featured

A strong 6-man Essex team travelled to Park Langley in Kent for Stage 2 Region 2 Men’s Over 50s team matches on 18 February looking to make amends for coming 3rd out of 3 in Stage 1 also involving a 1-4 loss to Kent with Essex having a very understrength team back in November. Essex duly won both matches 4-1 versus Oxfordshire and Kent.
