Published in 2024 by Red Rose Books

Original A5 pictorial hard cloth.

(iv) + 36 pages, illustrated.

Limited edition of 14 copies, signed and numbered by the author.

The author recalls the English summer of 1961 when, as a 14 year-old schoolboy, he regularly attended Lancashire’s county championship matches at Old Trafford. He even managed to take in the match against Essex played at Blackpool during his family’s annual holiday at the seaside resort. Roy also caught his first glimpse of the Australian cricket tourists, who made three visits to Old Trafford that summer. He attended the opening day’s play of the Australians match against Lancashire 10 May, during which the home side scored 310-7 declared. Peter Marner top-scored with 87 and he was ably-supported by Jack Bond, who contributed 68.The summer would see Lancashire finish in 13th position in the County Championship, and the author reminisces on the batting exploits of Lancashire captain Bob Barber, Jack Bond, Ken Grieves, Peter Marner and Geoff Pullar, bowlers of the calibre of Ken Higgs, Colin Hilton and Brian Statham, the all-rounder Roy Collins, and wicketkeeper Geoff Clayton.

Limited edition of 20 copies, signed by the author.

In 1921, a side known as the Philadelphia Pilgrims crossed the Atlantic and played 12 fixtures, albeit none of first-class status. If referred to at all, this tour is written off as an irrelevant, alcohol-fuelled jolly made by a bunch of ageing has-beens. This book, which includes match reports and scorecards of all the fixtures, aims to redress the balance. The Pilgrims played against all-amateur sides of a high quality and were successful on the pitch, winning five and losing just two of their matches. An analysis of the tourists’ performances in domestic cricket indicates that the squad was representative of the best Philadelphia had to offer at that time and it is argued that the visit should be considered as a bona fide tour of importance, even though it originated from a part of the world where cricket was on its last legs.

Stephen Musk was the winner of the Brooke-Lambert Award for the Statistician of the Year in 2023 ‘for his substantial contribution to ACS scholarship’. This is his 10th publication for Red Rose Books.

Limited edition of 20 copies, signed by the author.

Returning home after a successful tour of England, the Australians, led by Dave Gregory, stopped off in North America in October of 1878 to play several matches, the second of which was the inaugural first-class match in Philadelphia. The three-day match between Philadelphia and the Australians took place at Nicetown, the ground of Germantown Cricket Club, and upwards of 10,000 were in attendance during the opening day's play. The grandstand was 'thronged with the youth and beauty' of the city and the Philadelphian XI, which included the four Newhall brothers, Bob, Charley, Dan, and George, acquitted themselves superbly against the Australians. Throw in an umpiring controversy and the threat of the game being abandoned, not to mention the possibility of monies being withheld, and it is evident that the match provided quite an eventful beginning to first class cricket in the city. Cricket - the Philadelphia story... The Australians of 1878, the author's initial innings for Red Rose Books, recalls the match and the 22 players who took part.

ISBN: 978173921567

In August 1896, the visiting Australian cricketers played the last of their matches with the English counties against Lancashire, in the unusual setting of Aigburth, in Liverpool. It rained, and rained and rained. But between the showers, one player seized the opportunity to prove that he’d developed into one of the deadliest attacking bowlers in world cricket. Three Days at Aigburth tells the story of Tom McKibbin’s match, interwoven with an account of the cricketing and personal life of the New South Wales and Australian Test cricketer.

It started out as a competitive clash between two teams vying for promotion from Division Two of the County Championship but ended in a final day rout that found its way into the record books. There was no hint on either of the first two days of the game that had begun on 12 June 2013 that anything out of the ordinary might be about to happen. But that all changed on an astonishing third day’s play. Lancashire had begun that morning seven runs behind with three wickets in hand. It couldn’t have been closer as each side surrendered and then regained the initiative. But that was all to change over the course of two amazing sessions of play. Here is the story of that astounding third - and ultimately - final day with eye-witness accounts from some of those who were privileged to be there, including players, pundits and fans.

Ernest Tyldesley scored more first-class runs and centuries for Lancashire County Cricket Club than any other batsman, surpassing records previously held by his elder brother, the legendary "Worsley wonder," John Tommy Tyldesley. However, Ernest's early career with the county was not without its ups and downs. Indeed, his performances for the Lancashire 2nd XI in the Minor Counties Championship in the early part of the 20th century were mediocre in the extreme. His later successes in both first-class and Test cricket may have come as a pleasant surprise to many cricket followers who had watched him at the crease in the early stages of his professional career. However, they came as no surprise to his brother, who, the esteemed cricket writer Neville Cardus recalled, had presciently remarked, 'Someday, he'll be a better bat than ever I was.'

John Tommy Tyldesley was England’s best professional batsman of the so-called Golden Age. Tyldesley toured Australia in 1901-02 and 1903-04. Expectations were high and he did not disappoint. In the Second Test in January 1904 in Melbourne, Tyldesley played his greatest ever innings in Australia. On a difficult, sticky wicket, John Tommy made 62 in England’s total of 103. England won the Test and eventually the series. Albert Knight wrote in the Sheffield Daily Telegraph that Tyldesley’s ‘batting in this match overshadowed that of Trumper’. Rare praise indeed. Before 1914, Tyldesley and Trumper were the two best batsmen on wet wickets. No wonder Knight describes Tyldesley as the ‘heart and hope’ of the side. Tyldesley was a player who knew his worth. With Len Braund, he tried to get more money from the MCC for the 1903-04 tour. They failed. The hard-headed Tyldesley would not be fooled again.

'Sensational Scoring at Old Trafford', the eleventh, and final, title in the Red Rose Cricket Records series, recalls the county match between Lancashire and Hampshire that took place on 3, 4 July 1911. Over 600 runs were scored by Lancashire batsmen during the opening day’s play and the visitors were bowled out twice the following afternoon as Lancashire won by an innings and 455 runs, the county’s largest margin of victory in first-class cricket.

Limited edition of 15 copies, signed by the author.

Edward ‘Daddy’ Long was the last cricketer to be selected to turn out for his county on the strength of his underarm, or ‘lob’, bowling. He played six matches for Norfolk in 1923 at the advanced age of 46 and was not unsuccessful, despite arguably being misused by his skipper, Michael Falcon. This book tells of how he mastered the art of lob bowling while playing for Barrow in the North Lancashire & District Cricket League and thoroughly bamboozled many batsmen in the decade before World War One. As well as describing Long’s career in Norfolk, the book considers in some detail the theoretical aspects of underarm bowling and comes to the surprising conclusion that a rapid ‘beamer’ was a vital weapon in many a lobster’s armoury.

He played six matches for Norfolk in 1923 at the advanced age of 46 and was not unsuccessful, despite arguably being misused by his skipper, Michael Falcon. This book tells of how he mastered the art of lob bowling while playing for Barrow in the North Lancashire & District Cricket League and thoroughly bamboozled many batsmen in the decade before World War One. As well as describing Long’s career in Norfolk, the book considers in some detail the theoretical aspects of underarm bowling and comes to the surprising conclusion that a rapid ‘beamer’ was a vital weapon in many a lobster’s armoury.

Limited edition of 25 hardback copies, signed by Stuart Brodkin.

The Jack Crossland story was one of the key moments in the late nineteenth century history of cricket. Despite being reckoned by many good judges to be one of the fastest bowlers of his generation, the controversy over the Lancashire player’s action always overshadowed his career and at one time threatened to tear the very fabric of the game apart. Two cricketing greats were on opposing sides in this debate - Red Rose icon AN Hornby, who was Crossland’s captain, stood resolutely behind his man, while the redoubtable Lord Harris of Kent waged a relentless campaign to have him banned. Ultimately, Harris held sway and Crossland, who was never no-balled in a first-class match, was forced out of the game, not for throwing, but because the MCC ruled he had broken the residential regulations of the day. Either way, the end of his first-class Lancashire career robbed the Old Trafford faithful of one of their favourite sons - a player who always gave his best and whose cheerful demeanour could never disguise his fierce competitiveness.

Limited edition of 106 copies, the first 16 of which were issued in a signed, hardback edition.

The author first met Frank Hayes in 1962 when they were both in the Salford Schoolboys’ team that played in the Lancashire Schools cricket competition. One of them went on to play for, and later captain, Lancashire County Cricket Club, scored a century on his England Test debut, and was seen as the new hero of the English game. The other played a lot of 2nd XI cricket in the Bolton Association! Eight years after he had single-handedly won the Lancashire Schools Cup, and after completing his education at Sheffield University, Hayes made his belated first-class debut for Lancashire. Within a couple of years, the author’s admiration of him as a cricketer and person, led to him taking out a membership at Lancashire so that he could continue to enjoy the special talents of his former teammate.

Limited edition of 25 copies, signed and numbered by the author.

Over the course of his long and distinguished career in first-class cricket, Lancashire’s John Tommy Tyldesley, gained a reputation as one of the best batsmen of his generation on rain-affected pitches. And the featured match, between Lancashire and the Australians at Old Trafford in 1899, perfectly illustrates this. On a wicket that was ‘playing queerly’, Tyldesley scored 56 and 42 while his teammates could only muster 58 runs between them in Lancashire’s two completed innings. The book also briefly recalls Tyldesley’s famous Ashes innings of 62 on a “sticky dog” at Melbourne in 1903-04, and a less well-known innings of 77 on a “glue-pot” against Nottinghamshire at Trent Bridge in 1910.

Stephen Musk

Published by Red Rose Books, 2023

Original pictorial hard cloth.

(iv) + 52 pages, illustrated.

Limited edition of 20 copies, signed by the author.

After the Great War, there was a demand for international cricket to be resumed as quickly as possible in the summer of 1919. A fully representative Ashes series proved impossible to organise - instead, a squad of Australian servicemen who were then based in England was put together, known as the Australian Imperial Forces (AIF) side. This squad made a full-length tour of England, playing 28 first class matches in front of large crowds. Their first fixture was against a team raised by Lionel Robinson, which was played at his estate deep in the Norfolk countryside. This book describes the genesis of this, the first international first-class match after the War. It gives a full report of the play, which ended tantalizingly when the AIF, who needed just nine runs to win with two wickets remaining, had to leave to catch a train. The subsequent fortunes of the Australians are also briefly considered.
