Essex cricket fans have a chance to meet their heroes this month - at least virtually anyway.

Hosted by Saffron Building Society, an official partner of the County Championship club in 2020, the online interactive question and answer session takes place on Thursday at 4pm and will feature Tom Westley and Paul Walter.

 Colin Field, chief executive officer at the building society, said: “We are so delighted to become an official partner of Essex County Cricket Club. With our roots firmly in Essex for over 170 years, and a love of cricket that ripples through the society, this partnership was the perfect match.

"Typically, we would be able to attend matches and cheer on our team but in these unprecedented times this has not been possible. But we are delighted to be able to offer a live Q&A session with two great players."

Darrell Fox, Commercial Manager at Essex Cricket, comments: ‘We are grateful to have the support of Saffron Building Society and we are delighted to be hosting a live Q&A session with club captain Tom Westley and Paul Walter as they build-up to the new season.”
