First Team touch down in Abu Dhabi


The Essex First Team landed in Abu Dhabi last night for two weeks of warm-weather training to prepare for the 2022 season.

Red and white-ball fixtures against Somerset have been pencilled in, as well as intra-squad fixtures and a variety of intense training programmes.

A light training session on Day One ended with a game of football, and you can view the best photos from the first day below.
