Congratulations to John Fuller on a highly successful launch of All Wickets Great and Small, the book which details his search for grassroots cricket in Yorkshire. Thanks to Waterstones in Leeds for hosting the event, to the local journalists who participated in the Q&A session, and of course to the many cricket fans and readers who stopped by for a chat and signed copy!
All Wickets Great and Small is a journey across cities and dales to meet those involved with amateur cricket in Yorkshire during the summer of 2015. The book is a winning combination of rail travel and cricket teas with a chance to uncover tales from pavilions across the county.
