Glory Gardens 8 - The Glory Ashes Paperback
by Bob Cattell
Illustrated by David Kearney
No one takes much notice of Ohbert Bennett when he creates a Glory Gardens website, but Ohbert has a mission - to make Glory Gardens the most famous junior club in the world.
He sends out a challenge to all junior sides to beat 'the reigning world champions'.
The first the other players know about it is when the top young Australian club side, Woolagong C.C., arrive in England to take up the challenge.
A five-game series - dubbed the Junior Ashes - is set up around the country and with the press and public following the action the pressure is certainly on.
With the series tied two - two, the final game at Trent Bridge attracts huge crowds and the big question on everyone's lips is - will the Glory Gardens XI win Ohbert's Ashes?
