The Architect - James Foster
Play • 49 min

With plenty of rain falling at Headingley on the opening week of the new County Championship season, Brooksy, Barmy Chris and Greggy found themselves in the company of former England wicketkeeper James Foster.

In the words of Brooksy 'he WAS a big name'. 

The Shackles Are Off present to you the second consecutive episode featuring a wicketkeeper - and he delivers!

Fozzy fills us in on Essex's rubbish function at Lord's after they won the Championship last year, playing for England so young, and what it's like to play with 'Chuckie' (or Alistair Cook to you and I).
