He edits the Lancashire Cricket Board Handbook, is the author of an acclaimed biography on sf Barnes, has collaborated on many cricket books, including with Frank Tyson and Shaun Udal, and has written articles for The Cricketer and Backspin. A specialist on cricket in the North-West, he has produced and presented cricket shows on BBC GMR and Pure FM radio. A graduate in history from Lancaster University, he has been playing the game at club cricket level in Lancashire and Cheshire as an accomplished wicketkeeper/batsman for over 40 years. Paul Edwards: Paul Edwards has written about cricket for over 20 years, but he only made a honest woman of the game in 2004. Educated at the Manchester Grammar school and Balliol College, Oxford, where only nepotism could explain his appearance for the authentics, he originally trained as a teacher and was on the staff at Harrow before he was rumbled. In the past decade he has worked for all the major national newspapers which cover county cricket and a large number of regional papers in Lancashire and beyond. He has also written for Wisden Cricketers' Almanack, The Cricketer and cricinfo. In his spare time he enjoys relaxing with the poetry of John Clare and the music of Kate Rusby. Graham Hardcastle: Graham co-wrote Champions...about bloomin' time! - the story of the club's historic County Championship title success in 2011 - with Chris ostick. Having come straight out of Edge Hill University with a degree in journalism, he has covered Lancashire's fortunes since 2005, working for regional and national newspapers such as the Manchester Evening News, the Bolton News and the Daily and Sunday Telegraph. He is also a regular contributor to the club's website. Graham has also dipped into cricket over the other side of the Pennines, covering Yorkshire's fortunes since 2008 for the Bradford Telegraph and Argus, York Press and Northern Echo. A playing career has been limited to second-team league appearances for Bradshaw in the Bolton League and first team appearances for Brinscall in the Ribblesdale League. In october 2011, Graham was named the inaugural winner of the prestigious ECB Young Cricket Writer of the Year award. Rev. Malcolm G Lorimer: A Methodist Minister who was born in Haworth, West Yorkshire but believes in conversion, Malcolm has followed and supported Lancashire for over 30 years. Having served in Moss Side, Heald Green, Sale and now Nantwich, he is Chaplain to Lancashire CCC and part of the heritage team. He has written a book on Brian Statham, and others on the history of the club, and helped edit three collections of the letters of Neville Cardus. He also writes crime fiction and has published a book of crime stories. He has published Champions - about bloomin' time! and also limited edition books on Lancashire cricketing legends. He likes Jazz, Sherlock Holmes and listens to Leonard Cohen.

Good choice of pictures with good coverage of early days (too many so-called histories give too much coverage to more recent past where sources more easily found. Some heavy research - well done
