Order before 30th April to be included in a list of Patrons
Richard Gwynn, our very own Hack Laureate, has contributed a chapter on the club to a new history of wandering cricket. Titled ‘Gentleman, gypsies and jesters’, it is published in July.
Written and edited by Anthony Gibson and Stephen Chalke (both past winners of the MCC & Cricket Society Book of the Year prizes), it is a 320-page guide to over 120 wandering clubs, and also features pieces on Old Boys cricket such as the Cricketer Cup.
If ordered directly (see details in the flyer – link below), all proceeds after postage will go to Chance to Shine – a charity aimed at keeping cricket alive in schools. Already the charity has reached 6,500 schools, but with only 10% of state schools playing cricket, a huge opportunity remains.
Order before 30 April and you can have your name included in a list of Patrons at the back of the book. The book costs £25, with a further £15 donation allowing you to be a Friend of Chance to Shine (you’ll also receive a free tie).
If you have any questions, please contact Richard Gwynn.
