All Wickets Great and Small : In Search of Yorkshire's Grassroots Cricket Paperback

Description

Nowt stops for cricket in Yorkshire. Passion runs deep, beyond those in whites, to the groundsmen, tea ladies, scorers and umpires who embody the game.

All Wickets Great and Small is a romp across the landscape of amateur cricket in Yorkshire during the summer of 2015.

Author John Fuller looks at the key issues affecting the grassroots game: the struggles to attract players, funding shortages, natural disasters and the social dynamics that can threaten a captain's eleven on a Saturday.

What shape is the grassroots game in and can it still survive and thrive?

From vicars and imams socking sixes in Dewsbury to heritage clubs hitting social media out of the park, this is the story of sleeves-rolled-up cricket at its best in the county that locals call 'God's own'.
