Yorkshire 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 Yorkshire history - with an entry for every day of the year. From the club's Victorian foundation to the Twenty20 era at a floodlit Headingley, the whole glorious Yorkshire gamut of incidents, great matches, huge crowds and controversies is covered - from the occasion when a game started twice, to the time when a Yorkshireman captained South Africa, and even when a Yorkshire cricketer rode a Grand National winner. Fully endorsed by the club, this immense wealth of history, nostalgia and irresistible trivia forms a backdrop against which county heroes - names such as Fred Trueman, Brian Close and Lord Hawke, Hedley Verity, Darren Gough and Sir Leonard Hutton - all loom larger than life.
