Essex and England cricket legend Graham Gooch will be signing copies of a brand new book, Essex County Cricket Club Memories, during Sunday’s home One Day Cup match against Surrey at Chelmsford.

Gooch, who wrote the foreword to the lavish 372-page, full colour hardback, will be outside the Essex Cricket Store at the Cloudfm County Ground between innings, which is expected to be around 2pm to 2.30pm.

The former Ilford Cricket Club product, and one of the most successful record-breaking batsmen of his generation, is one of 25 past and present players interviewed in this acclaimed book.

It also includes current England Test opener Alastair Cook, former England captain Nasser Hussain, respected title-winning skipper Keith Fletcher and stylish South African batsman Ken McEwan.

Popular members from the trophy-winning seasons of the late 70s, 80s and early 90s John Lever, Stuart Turner, Ray East, David Acfield, Neil Foster, Brian Hardie, Mark Ilott, Ronnie Irani, Derek Pringle, Paul Prichard and John Childs also feature and recently retired Graham Napier, David Masters and Ashley Cowan recall their highs and lows.

Essex CCC Memories is available (price £30, post-free in the UK) direct from the publisher online at www.insideedgebooks.com or by calling 01708 734 502.
