Warwickshire CCC On This Day revisits all the most magical and memorable moments from the county’s distinguished cricketing past, mixing in a maelstrom of quirky anecdotes and legendary characters to produce an irresistibly dippable diary of Bears history – with an entry for every day of the year. From the grim survival battle in the club’s early years to the unique treble success of 1994, the whole Warwickshire gamut is here – from mustering just 16 all out against Kent at Tonbridge in 1913 to Ian Bell and Jonathan Trott underpinning England's batting; from momentous Tests at Edgbaston through to committee deliberations about what kind of towel should be placed in the members' lavatory! Fully endorsed by the club, this wealth of glorious, nostalgic, controversial and trivial history forms a backdrop against which Warwickshire heroes – names such as Amiss, Foster and Lara; Hollies, Willis and Small – all loom larger than life.
