Fatally Cricket

Rt Hon Sir Alan Haselhurst MP

9781907076756‘It was a harsh intrusion into the peaceful setting of a village cricket match. In the countryside gunshots are not unusual. Farmers are not averse to potting rabbits or scaring birds off their crops. In those circumstances more than one shot would be expected. It might have been a car backfiring. It was the fact that some people thought they had a heard a scream that tended to rule out these explanations.’

Fatally Cricket portrays the world of village cricket at its most murderous.

Illustrated with cartoons by Hoby.

Eventually Cricket

Rt Hon Sir Alan Haselhurst MP

UKjktThe Outcasts CC is England’s most infamous wandering cricket club. Somehow its pursuits of the noble ideals of cricket seem always to be accompanied by a good deal of beer, sex, and curry – not necessarily in that order – plus the attention of the emergency services.  Eventually Cricket recounts the thoroughly unedifying tale of two early season fixtures and confirms — not that there could ever have been any doubt — that a club of this sort should never be let near school cricket.

Illustrated with cartoons by Hoby.
