Nottinghamshire CCC On This Day revisits all the most magical and memorable moments from the county's distinguished cricketing past, mixing in a maelstrom of quirky anecdotes and legendary characters to produce an irresistibly dippable diary of Notts history - with an entry for every day of the year. From the day William Clarke married Mary Chapman, landlady of the Trent Bridge Inn, and decided to convert their meadow into the Trent Bridge cricket ground, right through to the Twenty20 era, Nottinghamshire's illustrious 170-year history takes in trophies, triumphs, unforgettable matches, hilarious and controversial events. Fully endorsed by the club, this wealth of history forms a backdrop against which the county's cricketing heroes - 19th century professionals Alfred Shaw and Arthur Shrewsbury; the celebrated Gunn family, four of whom played for the county; England's Harold Larwood and Bill Voce; overseas stars such as Garry Sobers and Richard Hadlee - all loom larger than life.
