Keep an eye out for ‘Hobbsy: A Life in Cricket’ written by Norfolk Cricket Society member Rob Kelly. A biography of former England, Essex, Suffolk and Glamorgan leg-spinner Robin Hobbs – a popular guest speaker at our April 2017 meeting – ‘Hobbsy’ will be available direct from Von Krumm Publishing as well as the Essex Cricket Store, Amazon and other major outlets.
A timely release before the start of the season, Compleat Cricket: eight days in September is Norwich-based author Tim Cawkwell’s latest book and a lovely account of the closing rounds of the 2017 County Championship. Essex had already clinched the County Championship and so all eyes were drawn towards the bottom of Division One and the scramble between five teams to avoid relegation.
Former England all-rounder Chris Lewis talking to BBC 5 Live’s Sarah Brett and Colin Paterson in September 2017 about his career in cricket, his fall from grace after being convicted of attempting to smuggle liquid cocaine into the UK and his long road to redemption.
Chris is our guest speaker on Thursday 26 October, 7.45pm at the George Hotel in Norwich.
