Publication Date: 18/09/2017
Somerset Cricketers 1919 ¿ 1939 continues the authors¿ compelling odysseythrough the early history of cricket in the county. Having previously introducedreaders to the lives of the men who played for Somerset prior to the First WorldWar, Stephen Hill and Barry Phillips now turn their attention to those who madetheir debut between the wars. A surprising number of them ¿ 124 in total ¿ weredrafted into the side in those twenty-one seasons. Some of them may be familiar.Players such as Arthur Wellard and Harold Gimblett were once idolised byWest Country schoolboys. A majority, though, were amateurs, often ill-equippedfor the first-class game. Their cricketing exploits may not have been much to writehome about but many of them lived extraordinary lives.Leaving no stone unturned as they researched the exploits of these men, theauthors have offered up an enjoyable journey through Somerset¿s cricketing pastwith fascinating detours as they reveal men who fell into the depths of despairor set about changing the world for the better. Businessmen and clergymen, warheroes and scoundrels, innovators and trouble-makers: we meet men from everywalk of life and we find how Somerset cricket linked together the fortunes ofthese disparate characters.
