Essex County Cricket Club today announced they and the University of East London have bid to become tenants at the Olympic Stadium, after this summer’s Games.

Essex’s bid follows confirmation last week from West Ham that it is their intention too.

An Essex statement read: “We can confirm that the University of East London and Essex County Cricket Club have jointly put in a bid to the Olympic Park Legacy Company to utilise space in the Olympic Stadium.

“We cannot provide any further detail at this stage, as we are bound by a legal confidentiality agreement.

“We can, though, state that both UEL and Essex Cricket see this as a fantastic opportunity.

“We are committed to supporting the achievement of the best possible outcomes from the legacy operation of the Olympic Stadium.”

It’s nearly time to go on the hunt for Christmas presents, stuck on what to get for your nearest and dearest? We’ve picked out a selection of great deals to get you started and to help you save some pennies!

Mmmm, nothing says Christmas like turkey gel, potato foam and cranberry air, or does it?

Did Milner work as City’s false nine? How did Benteke fare back on the pitch? And are Liverpool finally in the game?

Just like the unwanted presents they are, you could argue (and we will) these players should be on their way out this Christmas.

It’s a sad day for football fans, but especially Hereford United fans after their club has been wound up by the High Court.
