Essex Inter-county Men’s o55's weekend

Inter County Championships - Men’s o55's - weekend of 17th/18th October 2015
Division 1 – Day 1 at Maldon 17.10.15
Essex Men's o55's were drawn at home again, and the fixture was played at Maldon's Park Drive Club. Teams from Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Glamorganshire were to be our opponents - but a late withdrawal from the Cambridge side that we'd played (and beaten!) so often meant that we would only have 2 matches. The Glamorgan boys had booked hotels so we played our fixtures across the weekend.
Day 1 – Essex v Suffolk
