Description

The Event:
The Cricketer hopes you will join us for our latest live event, taking place at the County Ground at Chelmsford in the company of three Essex legends: Keith Fletcher, John Lever and Ray East. As pillars of the powerful team of the late ‘70s and ‘80s, Lever, Fletcher and East all hold a special place in the affections of the Chelmsford faithful.

Fletcher was the “benign dictator” whose captaincy mixed humour and authority in equal measure. Lever was the spearhead of the attack who would run in all day every day and was consistently in and around the 100 wicket a season mark. East meanwhile was the wild card – a natural comedian who kept the team together with his endless quips and pranks; a trait which overshadowed his capabilities as a slow left-armer.

Please join us in Chelmsford on Tuesday August 28th to hear the trio in conversation with editor of The Cricketer Simon Hughes, to hear reminiscences of their careers and pose your own questions. Likely topics include:

  • Their fondest memories and quirky anecdotes from inside the dressing room of the great Essex side and recollections of teammates like Graham Gooch, Stuart Turner and Derek Pringle.

  • Hear them discuss the more challenging periods of their careers: Lever’s recollections of the Vaseline Incident, Fletcher’s swift dismissal as England captain at the hands of Peter May, and the selectors continued neglect of East for international recognition… did his extroverted personality count against him?

  • Their views on the game today: What future do counties like Essex have in a post-Hundred world? What changes would they suggest to sustain county and Test cricket for another generation?

Please do join us for what should be a wonderful evening - but please note tickets are strictly limited - so book now to avoid disappointment.

Event Timings:
The doors will open at 6.15pm and the event will begin at 7.00pm and finish at 8.30pm. The bar will be open before and after the debate - come early and have a drink or stay late and continue the debate with our panellists.
