Book description

At the start of the 1959 season, Yorkshire had not won an outright County Championship for 13 years, in those days an unthinkable scenario for White Rose players and supporters. By 1969, they had set the record straight in the most emphatic manner, winning seven Championships and lifting the Gillette Cup twice to establish their place in the pantheon of County Cricket’s greatest teams. The Yorkshire side of the Sixties featured some of the most famous players in the history of the game: Fred Trueman, Brian Close, Raymond Illingworth and Geoffrey Boycott. And alongside them were the men whose deeds guaranteed them a place in White Rose folklore but whose stories have, for the most part, not been told before. Men like Philip Sharpe, slip fielder supreme, wicketkeeper Jim Binks, who made 412 successive first-class appearances, Mel Ryan and Bob Platt, Trueman’s new ball partners, and Richard Hutton, son of Sir Leonard. They are just some of the players who will feature in “Magnificent Seven”, the story, in their own words, of the champion cricketers who shaped Yorkshire’s Championship Decade.
