Cricketing Clerics Package B SOLD OUT

£29.00 £19.00

Frank Gillingham has now sold out. George Raikes remains available.

Anthony Bradbury’s latest work, Frank Gillingham: Clerical Cricketer or Cricketing Clergyman? describes a stylish attacking batsman for Essex either side of the First World War who was also a London curate for many years. His accomplishments included a double-century at Lord’s and duty as Chaplain to the Royal Household, as well as a role in some of the first live radio broadcasts on cricket.

In George Raikes: Muscular Christianity? Stephen Musk tells the story of a man of many parts: Raikes kept goal for Oxford University and England at football before becoming a vicar and an early googly bowler. In his cricket career, Raikes led Norfolk to two Minor County Championships before the First World War.

These two books are also available in a triple package, along with Reverend ES Carter: A Yorkshire Cricketing Cleric.
