Site Editor's Note

The battlefields of the Wars of the Roses may now be silent, but for a hundred and fifty years Lancashire County Cricket Club has continued the struggle for pre-eminence over neighbouring rival county Yorkshire. This is, of course, not the one and only aspect of the history of Lancashire cricket but to any true-born Lancastrian or Yorkshireman it still matters.

It's rather sad, though, that when you look up "Old Trafford" in a computer search engine what stares out at you is a football ground. The young upstart takes all the prominence while Old Trafford the cricket ground is found several items lower down the list. This book, though, puts cricket where it should be, right in the foreground of Lancashire and Manchester's story. (Yes, despite the machinations of London bureacrats with their 1970s boundary manipulation, Manchester is a Lancashire city and the home of Lancashire cricket).

It has not, of course, always been a glorious story. There have been times of greatness and periods of decline, and this book is true to them both. If you're either a fan of county cricket, cricket is general as a sport (Yes, it was once a game before it became a business), or in all things Lancashire then this is a book for you.
