Travelling to Kent to see the Champions pick up the trophy?


Having clinched the Specsavers County Championship Division Two title last week against Glamorgan, Essex head to Kent to play their final game of the season and lift the trophy.

Chris Silverwood has named a youthful looking squad for the trip to Canterbury with Aaron Beard and Matt Dixon making the trip. David Masters will look to make his final professional appearance at the club where he started his career and in the process hand the baton over to the likes of Beard and Dixon.

The trophy will be presented to Chris Silverwood’s side on the final day’s play in Canterbury and Essex will look to finish the season strongly with a victory against rivals Kent.
