To mark another visit to Scarborough I thought there might be interest in these pictures I was given a few years ago of Festival matches in 1937 and 1938. I think the games are HDG Leveson-Gower's XI v MCC (Australian XI) and HDG Leveson-Gower's XI v New Zealand in 1937, as well as HDG Leveson-Gower's XI v Australia in 1938.

Help with identifying the players would be appreciated.

Some classics here, ECE. We'll include a link to them in the match threads next week.

Great scorecards and pictures - outfield looks bit rough in those days! Brings back memories of players like Gimblett, Fishlock, Paynter etc. .Does anyone have immediate post war scorecards and pictures?
