Annual Cricket takeover of Leyton Orient


It was once again great to restart our annual collaboration with Leyton Orient for a cricket takeover, a whole day of activities as Leyton Orient and Essex Cricket joined forces to bring the local community together to enjoy, celebrate and play cricket at The Breyer Group Stadium.

Working with Leyton Orient Football Trust and LOFC BTEC students, we supported a day of activities. Including Primary Schools Festival, Secondary Schools Festival, our Chelmsford and Leyton Walking Cricket groups playing, Table Cricket, Ability Cricket session and topped up by an evening of Tape Ball Adult Community programme with the finals played under the lights’.

The collaboration started in 2018 and was paused due to the pandemic and was on the insight from the cricket community that Everywhere is a cricket ground, they wanted a venue where the easiest form of the game, Tape Ball Cricket can be played under lights. The O’s came to the rescue and the festival keeps going from strength to strength.
