Herbert Sutcliffe by Alan Hill
Book DescriptionA national hero in his playing days, Herbert Sutcliffe belongs to the select band of all-time cricketing greats. This biography of the Yorkshire and England batsman charts his extraordinary transformation from cobbler's apprentice to urbane gentleman and one of the coolest, most determined and technically accomplished practitioners the game has ever known. Blessed with the looks of a matinee idol, Sutcliffe was a complex, often enigmatic personality. As a cricketer he was touched with genius: he scored 50,138 first class runs, including 149 centuries, with a remarkable Test average of 60.73 - the highest for an English batsman. In preparing this biography, Alan Hill has called upon the reminiscences of Bob Wyatt, Sir Donald Bradman and Sir Len Hutton amongst other illustrious contemporaries, to evoke the splendour of Sutcliffe's achievements for Yorkshire and England.

Valiant Cricketer, Hardback (July 2012)
The biography of Trevor Bailey, a three-time Ashes winner, regarded along with Ian Botham as England's premier all-rounder since the Second World War. He played 61 Tests and became the second Englishman after Wilfred Rhodes to score 2,000 runs and take 100 wickets. After retirement from the game, he joined the BBC's Test Match Special programme.
Tony Lock, Hardback (September 2008)
Tony Lock was an aggressive, attacking left-arm spinner who ideally complemented the subtleties of Jim Laker's off-spin when Surrey were winning the County Championship between 1952 and 1958. This biography tackles the 'throwing' issue in the 1960s that led to his emigration to Australia, where he became reputed as a fine professional and coach.
Bill Edrich, Paperback (August 2007)» View all books by Alan Hill
