Watch: Siddle’s Surprise


The lockdown period has been a new experience for children who are completing their school work from home so when the Club received a message from a young Eagles fan, we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to help them out.

Charlie, aged 9, from Chelmsford has been busy at home tackling a school project and decided to focus it on his favourite Essex bowler, Peter Siddle!

After getting in touch with Club for some help, we decided to get in touch with the one person who could really lend a hand.

Sids is currently back home in Australia but jumped on a video call with Charlie to talk cricket and help him with his project!

Essex fans will be able to welcome Peter back next year after agreeing to defer his contract this season to 2021 and you can read more – here.
