ESCC was delighted to welcome home club favourite son Sam Robson back for 1st Grades Round 8 NSW Premier Cricket fixture against Sutherland last Saturday the 16th of December.
Sam returns to the club for the County Cricket off-season, where he plies his trade for Middlesex CCC at Lords who he has scored over 10,000 First-Class Runs for.
After bowling Sutherland out for 128, Sam opened the batting & carried his bat to finish 67 not out & guided the boys to a bonus point win, having chased down Sutherland’s total in under 30 overs. With Sam looking a class above the bowling at Waverley Oval.
Sam noted how good it was to be home:
“It was great to be back home playing for Easts last Saturday & for the club to win all five grades made it even sweeter.
the vibe in The Tank & at The Woollahra Hotel after play was lively, it is great to be home.”
Sam will be playing for the club until March, when he will return to London for pre-season with Middlesex.
