Cricket 1760’s style!


This afternoon Margaret Mills took us back to the 1760’s when a cricket match between rival teams from Essex and Kent ended up in a less than gentlemanly fashion.

 

The first match was held at a ground in Billericay in 1761 whilst the return took place two years later at Tilbury Fort.

If you thought that hooligan activities were the preserve of football, think again as this match ended in murder.

Wonder if the perpetrator was granted bail!

Listen again here to Margaret’s commentary on these matches: –

See you once more next week,
