Edwin Smith launch a great success

It was a memorable night for both Edwin Smith and old Peakfan last night, as my new book on Edwin's career was launched at Chesterfield Library in front of a fine audience.

Several of Edwin's former team mates were in attendance, as was Derbyshire captain, Wayne Madsen, who happily chatted and posed for photographs as the books were sold and signed.

Edwin was in fine form and entertained the audience with stories from his career, then took questions from the audience.

Thank you to everyone who came along for making it a special evening and please get in touch if you would like to buy.

The book is now available on Ebay - simply search under 'Edwin Smith'.

There's the basis of a good little team there, but I don't fancy my chances of either opening the batting or taking the new ball...

Thanks to all at Derbyshire County Libraries for making the evening one to treasure.
