Watch: Through The Essex Ages… The 1970s


Following the first episode of the ‘Through The Essex Ages’ series last week, Tuesday evening saw us head back to the 1970s.

The second instalment included an illustrious panel of former Club heroes to talk about a pivotal decade, which laid the foundations for a string of trophy successes in 1979 and through the 80s.

Joining us were Graham Saville, David Acfield, Stuart Turner and Keith Pont, who all played key roles in the side during the 70s and they shared many stories on matches, fellow teammates and cricket during that time.
