Senior Section

WELCOME! 
EAGCC currently fields three senior cricket teams; two on a Saturday and one a Sunday.
The First XI plays on Saturdays in The Marshall Hatchick Two Counties Division 4 having gained promotion in 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2017.  We are hoping to continue our rise to Division 3 this season.
The Second XI also play on a Saturday in Division 9 of the Two Counties league. Combining many of our promising youth players with our experienced ‘veterans’ the team is captained by Richard Polley and aims to provide a balanced introduction to senior cricket for younger players.
The Sunday IX will compete in Division Two of the North Essex Cricket League. Facing some of the best teams in North Essex, 2017 is shaping up to be an exciting prospect. For League info visit Two Counties and NECL websites.
Key to our success is the systematic introduction of younger players from the youth section.  We are also keen to recruit new players at 1st XI level and will be pleased to hear from anyone interested from home or overseas.  Please get in touch.
