Essex County Cricket Club visit

On Monday 18th March 2013, 14 children from Years 5 and 6 were invited to a "Schools Day" at Essex County Cricket Club.

Nearly 20 schools attended and each pupil received a goody bag with games, quizzes and a poster of the Essex 1st XI squad.

We watched a training session on the field where we saw the players practising catching and throwing.

The players answered questions about their careers and then each child was able to collect autographs and have phoots taken with the players and the mascot, Eddie the Eagle.
