Savill made his first-class debut for Essex against Glamorgan in the 1953 County Championship. He played first-class cricket for Essex more from 1953 to 1961, making 125 appearances, with his final appearance coming against Surrey.[1] In his 125 appearances for the county, he scored 3,919 runs at a batting average of 21.29, with fifteen half centuries, four centuries and a high score of 115.[2] His highest first-class score came against Cambridge University in 1959.[3] Savill passed 1,000 runs for a season once, in 1959 when he scored 1,197 runs at an average of 32.35.[4] His only first-class wicket was George Dews, who he dismissed for 130 when Essex played Worcestershire in 1959.[5] His only bowling innings, which consisted of 2 overs was expensive, costing 26 runs.[6]
