Derbyshire County Cricket Club, often damned with faint praise as one of the struggling counties, has a history of gritty, competitive cricket and rich, colourful characters, hard men from the pits blended with the products of Repton and Oxbridge. Derbyshire's history is one of stark contract, from loss of first-class status in the 1880s and periodic financial crises, to the Championship title in 1936 and later triumphs in limited-overs competitions. Derbyshire supporters have never had a dull ride. The club's unique mix of talent and character is represented here by the long-serving amateur Levi Wright, Championship-winning skipper Arthur Richardson, batting heroes such as Kim Barnett and the all-round talents of Les Townsend and Geoff Miller. Fast-bowling greats include the carousing Warren and Bestwick, the Pope brothers and the greatest of them all, Les Jackson. No county has a greater wicketkeeping pedigree, never more in evidence than when Humphries, Dawkes and Taylor were arguably the finest of their respective eras. Focusing on the 100 greatest players from the club's history, with biographies, statistics and many rare illustrations, this fascinating book is a 'must have' for any true Derbyshire CCC fan.
