Product Description

From the Back Cover


The England team for the winter tour to Karistan is about to be announced and flamboyant Yorkshire all-rounder Kevin Sowerbutts thinks he's a certainty for the trip. A practical joker with a taste for the booze and an eye for the birds, 'Butty' also has a raw power that can strike fear into any opposition.

But the captain J H Fotheringhay (Harrow and Oxford) and the chairman of selectors Derek March, both from rival county Hamcester, have their own agenda for the tour, and it doesn't involve a rebel like Sowerbutts.

'Deep Cover' is the hilarious story of the adventures that ensue, following the fortunes of a group of players on a rollercoaster ride of tabloid headlines, dodgy decisions, thrilling scrapes and bitter competition…and that's not to mention the cricket!

I got this book as a christmas present when it first came out. I have probably read it over 15 times since. Its such a great read, and very easy to follow.

A quote from the back of the book...

"An uproarious cricketing collaboration by one our most celebrated sporting heroes and the popular ITV sports presenter."
