Slipless in Settle is a sentimental journey around club cricket in the north of England, a world far removed from the clichéd lengthening-shadows-on-the-village-green image of the summer game. This is hardcore cricket played in former pit villages and mill towns. Winner of the 2011 MCC Cricket Book of the Year, it is about the little clubs that have, down the years, produced some of the greatest players Britain has ever seen, and at one time spent a fortune on importing the biggest names in the international game to boost their battle for local supremacy.

Slipless in Settle is a warm, affectionate and outrageously funny sporting odyssey in which Andrew Flintoff and Learie Constantine rub shoulders with Asbo-tag-wearing all-rounders, there's hot-pot pie and mushy peas at the tea bar, two types of mild in the clubhouse, and a batsman is banned for a month for wearing a fireman's helmet when going out to face Joel Garner . . .

Picked up at the Unconvention. Thank you for sharing!

Journal Entry 7 by beeofgoodcheer at Stowmarket, Suffolk United Kingdom on Monday, October 24, 2022
Sorting through my groaning bookcases, I came across this travelling book having something of a snooze - although it may well have travelled in a house move - or two!

My plan for 2023 is to read as many Bookcrossing books as possible, and to get them moving again for others to enjoy too, so this hopefully will not be the last you hear from this book!

I gave this to my Mum, who enjoyed 'dipping' into it, but decided against reading it all.
Mum passed it on to a friend, who read and enjoyed it.
