This book presents a fascinating insight into the careers of Yorkshire County Cricket Club players. It is lavishly illustrated throughout with over 100 photographs. Of all the Eighteen First-Class Cricket Counties, there are none with a more richer and illustrious history than Yorkshire County Cricket Club, and "Yorkshires Cricketing Legends" takes the reader on a historical sporting journey chronicling the careers of the clubs most prominent players. Many have walked onto the field of player to represent the White Rose County, not all have worn the famous cap and sweater, some have gone no further than a brief appearance or a second eleven match, but I am sure none of them will ever forget the day they did. However there are only seventy-eight of them who have gone on to wear the sweater with the Three Lions of England, and some have become household names in every cricket playing country in the world, thus becoming the true legends of Yorkshire and England cricket. Of course not all Yorkshire born cricketers to play for their country have played for their native county, in fact thirteen of them didn't. Some moved to distant fields early in their careers. Some could not break into the Yorkshire team for one reason or another, but all have a connection to the county because of their birth. It is probably fair to assume that those who didn't play would have, given a chance, and this book will allow the reader to see who those players are, and why a select band of ninety-one cricketers have got something very special in common. Jim Laker and Derek Shackelton to name but two, are players that have slipped the Yorkshire net - each because of different circumstances - and imagine what a Yorkshire bowling attack it would have been in the 1950's and 60's with Lake and Shackelton joining Trueman, Wardle, Appleyard and Illingworth. Indeed would Surrey have won the County Championship seven times in the 1950's if those two in particular had worn the White Rose of Yorkshire? The most intriguing question of all is who will be the ninety-second?
