Jack Bond-Lancashire Lad, Lancashire Leader
This excellent biography of former Lancashire skipper Jack Bond by Douglas Miller is available for £7.00 including postage (UK addresses only).
A devout Methodist and family man, Bond first played for Lancashire in 1955 when he was 23.
It took him a few years to establish himself, but he had a good season in 1961, and then scored more than 2,000 runs the following year, the last Lancashire batsman to achieve this prodigious feat.
In 1963 however Wes Hall broke his arm early in the season and although Bond eventually returned his batting never again reached the standard he set himself in 1962.
In 1968 the Lancashire committee turned to Bond to assume the captaincy and his ability to mould a young, exciting team alongside overseas stars Clive Lloyd and Farokh Engineer into a force to be reckoned with saw the Red Rose side enjoy unparalleled success.
Price £7.00 inc. postage per book for advance orders (UK postal addresses* only).
