Mine of Information

Want to know who top scored in the Northamptonshire vs Worcestershire Second XI match in June 1968?

No, me neither actually! But if you're looking for a central resource for effectively EVERY first class cricket match ever played, plus loads of one day games and second tier stuff, here's your resource.

I'd freely toss around the expression 'sad anorak' if only I hadn't just spent two hours perusing the site!

PS - It was David Steele. Funnily enough, looking at that scorecard made me wonder about the atmosphere in the Northants changing room during that game. Steele, you'll recall, is a very down to earth Geordie - the 'PG Lee' in that line up later moved to Lancashire, and had a reputation for being rather 'outspoken' - so any guesses how they go on with 'The Earl of Cottenham' who batted number nine and opened the bowling for that team?!
