Essex v Yorkshire: McGrath’s Memories


Anthony McGrath spent his entire playing career at Yorkshire before moving south to join up with former teammate, Chris Silverwood.

This weekend was set to mark the start of his third season in charge of Essex after taking the reigns from Spoons after the 2017 season but that is now on hold. We sat down with Mags to discuss his time playing for his home county and the memorable games he played in against Essex.

Anthony has played a huge influence on the squad since his move with the Club meteoric rise to the top of county cricket. This was also an opportunity to look back on the matches he has experienced on the other side of the boundary rope with some special memories of games against Yorkshire both as Assistant and Head Coach.

The immediate match which springs to mind is the onslaught from Mohammad Amir in 2017 which left Yorkshire battered and bruised, as Essex secured the win at Scarborough en route to the title.
