Essex County cricket team get some much needed practice in the nets at the County Ground, Leyton.
The Essex County cricket team are at the nets at the County Ground, Leyton for some pre-season practice in the lovely April sunshine. The first County Championship match of the season was still a few weeks away and Essex would have been keen to improve on the 1921 season. Long-serving John Robert Freeman and club secretary Noel Wilkinson roll up their sleeves for a bit of batting. Wilkinson looks a bit rusty and the cameraman captures a lovely medium pace delivery hitting the middle stump.
