Slipless in Settle, Harry Pearson (Abacus, £8.99)
NORTHERN cricket leagues, where they played the game with the zest of nevergive- up, and still do, were the core of the great summer game, producing many cricketers who went on to play for counties and their country.
Harry Pearson takes a sentimental journey through these leagues delighting us with his sharp observations of what made all the clubs click in their own way.
Apart from relating what he sees and comparing it with the past, he picks up comments from those who have been ardent fans of these leagues, the players, the umpires, the organisers, the spectators and the tea-ladies, without whose refreshments cricketing days would not have been the same.
Fact is put over in a light informative way with a touch of humour that will delight any cricket fan and leave a greater understand of what there is behind this great game.
