From Woodford Wells and Hornchurch, from Bulmer and Audley End, from Navestockside and Upton Park to Gosfield Park and Writtle Green, the cricketers of Essex shifted and spread their talent from one fashionable centre to the next.

Despite abundant enthusiasm and talent, Essex was unable to pull together a fighting force strong enough to take on either the emerging northern teams or neighbouring home counties. The question “why?” preoccupies the author in his analysis of the historical framework within which cricket grew into a national obsession.
