This period saw the Eagles’ begin the Royal London Cup Tournament. Like many other counties across England, Essex have been trying to supplement their squad for the 50-over competition. Luckily, their recent signing, Grant Roelofsen, had been on head coach Anthony McGrath’s radar for a while. The South African cricketer has gone from strength to strength since joining the First XI this August, scoring a whopping 326 runs with a high score of 90.

Roelofsen has enjoyed brilliant partnerships with Skipper, Tom Westley this season so far. Westley himself has shone throughout the tournament with two List A centuries under his belt whilst hitting countless balls beyond the boundary. Both players have played key roles in the Eagles’ back-to-back wins at The Cloud County Ground.

Shane Snater’s fielding expertise was vital in the Eagles first step to victory on Thursday 11 August against Kent Spitfires. His stellar performance included a quick-fire 5-wicket haul which left the opposition in distress. After he had claimed three wickets in just one over, Snater was a clear competitor for Ambassador Cruise Line’s Player of the Match award which he scooped up after close of play.

Feroze Khushi followed in his Captain’s footsteps against Glamorgan on Sunday 14 August. His quick work with the bat allowed him to score his second Century of the season, with a high score of 118. Khushi’s determination had paid off tenfold and he celebrated in style on the pitch, jumping high into the air.
