Essex Archives: Relive the 2019 Vitality Blast


Our Essex Archives series returns today as we continue with the 2019 Vitality Blast competition. Next up is a trip to Hove, which took place in August and saw the 7th placed Eagles take on table-toppers, Sussex Sharks.

There are three ways to watch today at 5pm with the game available below, on our YouTube channel or on Facebook Live via our official Club page.

It was an all or nothing match, with defeat more or less ending chances of qualifying to the latter stages of the competition. The match came off the back of three no results in the Blast due to the rain. However, a Championship win over Kent in the previous match had boosted morale for Anthony McGrath’s men and the opportunity to put on a show in front of the Sky Sports cameras.

This latest Essex Archives match is supported by Seven Investment Management and we’ll be continuing our Essex Archives a we build-up to the start of the 2020 season.
