I’m delighted to say that my book about the Scarborough Cricket Festival called Last of the Summer Wickets was published in May 2019.
It’s available to buy in Waterstones and other fine book stores across the land will stock the paperback version of Last of the Summer Wickets.
So…what’s in the book?
If you have ever been to the Scarborough Cricket Festival, you have to buy this book.
Interview with Geoffrey Boycott about his first and last Yorkshire games? Tick.
Chat with Darren Lehmann about why Scarborough strikes such a chord? Oh, yes. A natter with Jason Gillespie? Of course.
Plus, pizza at Giannis, the joy of a cooked breakfast at North Bay cafe, inspecting the wicket at lunch, watching the action from the Boundary Hotel, talking a good game in the marquee and sourcing insight from the press box.
What makes county cricket at Scarborough unique? What is its future?
I’ve interviewed those at the club, Mark Arthur, Yorkshire’s Chief Executive, plus many fans for whom a trip to North Marine Road is the first thing in the diary every year.
Last of the Summer Wickets celebrates county cricket on the coast, it cherishes Scarborough itself and it’s guaranteed to bring a smile to your face.
What have other people said about it?
Here is a selection of book reviews from the Yorkshire Post to Amazon – where it briefly featured in the Top 10 Best-selling cricket books.
If you’d like to order a paperback copy of Last of the Summer Wickets then visit the Great Northern Books website.
Thanks to everyone who has bought a copy so far, I really enjoyed meeting many of you at the 2019 Scarborough Cricket Festival and at author events.
