John Barclay, Susanna Kendall (Illustrator). A sweet vignette of a cricket book.

John Barclay, Susanna Kendall (Illustrator). It paints a largely idyllic picture of county cricket in 1981, though facing some of the bowling on show in that season must been somewhat less than pleasant (Roberts, Garner, Le Roux, Rice, Hadlee, Khan, Daniels) I suspect the quality of the teams were somewhat better than today but Barclay doesn’t boast in that way. The book does lovingly drift into nostalgia, but who cares it is done with a warm heart and love the game and players. Times have changed (how A sweet vignette of a cricket book.

The Appeal of the Championship: Sussex in the Summer of 1981. In this charming and idiosyncratic book, John Barclay brings an old-world gentleness and human sympathy to his sketches. He is modest about his literary skill but in places he writes memorably. The grand Jim Swanton would have made a good president of MCC or perhaps even Archbishop of Canterbury - 'conceivably both'. Ian Gould belonged in an era 'when a cup of tea, a cheese roll and a cigarette constituted a warm-up'. Javed Miandad's genius was 'baroque. as opposed to Viv Richards' Wagnerian thunder.

John Barclay looks back on the summer of 1981, his first as captain of the Sussex cricket team. Against the backdrop of a remarkable Ashes series and a royal wedding, they go all out to win the county championship for the first time in their history. From pre-season planning in Australia to the bowling of the last ball, he recounts with a gentle humour the story of the summer, not just the cricket matches but their way of life as they travel around England, and he reflects on what it all meant. In a foreword to the book, the late David Sheppard, Bishop of Liverpool, writes: "John Barclay takes us inside the life of the team. That includes tense dressing room moments, when a close finish is being fought; also the wet days that drag, journeys and meals together, and the spirit that sustained a long campaign. The characters came alive for me as I read John's account. It made me laugh out loud more than any book has achieved for years."
