And me, as well as JB's book; "Connie: The Marvellous Life of Learie Constantine" by Harry Pearson who wrote the brilliant "Slipless in Settle" and "The Trundlers", both of which I'm sure many of you will be familiar with; and various items of YCCC clothing for the new season to suit all weathers. The lass has done well as always!

I got the Jonny Bairstow/Duncan Hamilton book and i'm quite stunned at how good it was. What do they know of cricket who only cricket know. The story is certainly Jonny's - but he was wise to work with such an excellent writer as Hamilton..
I also got a book by our very own Dave Morton which is an excellent read - congratulations Dave..

Agree Steve, I wasn't expecting too much from Jonny's book - as with Joe Root's effort - but it's a great read.

The Stephen Chalke/Geoff Cope collaboration, 'In Sunshine and in Shadow', is even better.

I also got the JB book although I've yet to start it. The other book I got was 'No Coward Soul' the Stephen Chalk + Derek Hodgson book about Bob Appleyard. I'm around the half way point. An incredible tale, heart- breakingly sad in parts.

Once I've finished I'm be interested in the opinion of WRF members who saw him play or others who have knowledge from reliable sources who did.

I also got the JB/Duncan Hamilton book plus The Final Over by Christopher Sandford & The Coming Storm by Nigel McCrery should keep me going for a while
And Glenn McGrath dismissed for 2 just 98 runs short of his century.
