I am thrilled to announce that my second book, produced by Pitch Publishing, will be launched on June 1.
'In Their Own Words: Derbyshire Cricketers in Conversation' looks at the history of Derbyshire County Cricket Club since the Second World War, told through interviews with some of the biggest names of that seventy-year period.
Starting with Walter Goodyear, now 99, the book looks at some of the biggest names and personalities of the period, those involved in the biggest stories and best-placed to tell it like it really was.
With a background in oral history, I wanted to capture these memories while there was a chance to do so and have them in one place for posterity. I am grateful to all those who so willingly gave their time to talk to me and I hope that the end result will be enjoyed by Derbyshire cricket fans of every age.
It has done what I hoped for and captured a lot of stories that I and hopefully you have never heard before, about the lot of a professional cricketer and the development of our cricket club over many decades.
More on this in the coming weeks!
