Essex County Cricket Team 1977

4 mins United Kingdom

It’s 1977 and Essex County Cricket Club are in their heyday. Gerry Harrison, for Anglia Television, interviews two of the players, Team Captain (and the team’s best batsman - after Gooch, maybe) Keith Fletcher, and left-arm pace bowler, the ‘Cricketer’s Cricketer’, John Lever. Both are confident for the season ahead. We also see Keith Boyce, Kenny McEwan, Graham Martin, and Ray East.

The East Anglian Film Archive, the first and largest Regional Film Archive in England, was established in 1976. Since 1984, EAFA has been owned and operated by the University of East Anglia, Norwich (UEA), to support research and work to preserve our moving image heritage. More than 250 hours are freely available online as examples of the wide range of film which attracts interest the world over.
