1000 Wins Not Enough!
Three thrilling September days when Lancashire met Hampshire at Aigburth are recalled in this fully illustrated 36-page booklet of 200 Numbered Limited Edition copies.
Lancashire and Hampshire were both Championship contenders going into the last game of the 2021 season and the players on each side poured six months of unstinting effort into one final tilt for the title.
It led to a brilliant, memorable and mad game that those watching are unlikely to forget.
This is the story of that last day and author Ken Grime captures all the emotions from the game — and the season — with the Championship title at stake until the final ball.
The booklet also includes an appreciation of Tom Bailey who took a career-best in the match where Lancashire recorded their one thousandth win in the County Championship.
And two previous thrilling encounters between Lancashire and Hampshire at Aigburth are recalled to add context to another memorable game at Liverpool.
I really enjoyed reading this booklet on the Lancashire v Hampshire cliff-hanger. It is superbly research and I particularly liked the bright, upbeat reporting and the use of the interviews with the players.
The narrative of the closing stages put me slap bang in the middle of the action, and that was backed up some excellent images.
There is a very useful explanation of the points system used in the Championship last season that made it much easier to understand too.
Overall a cracking read.
