Yorkshire CCC was officially formed on 8 January 1863. Ever since, and even before, that date there have been incidents, matches, controversies and characters that have made Yorkshire cricket famous around the world. All of the events that comprise the most successful cricket club in England have been chronicled in the first-ever Yorkshire CCC On This Day - fully endorsed by the club and a vast piece of research on cricket in Yorkshire, at Headingley and around Yorkshire's cricket grounds. All major events, achievements, related stories and the great cricketers who played their part throughout Yorkshire's immense history are covered. Players like Lord Hawke, Wildred Rhodes, George Herbert Hirst, Hedley Verity, Herbert Sutcliffe, Sir Leonard Hutton, Fred Trueman, Brian Close, Geoffrey Boycott, Ray Illingworth, Darren Gough, Matthew Hoggard and Michael Vaughan are justifiably known as greats of Yorkshire and international cricket. There are moments when Yorkshire cricket has suffered on and off the pitch, moments of tragedy, but then the times when a Yorkshire cricketer rode a Grand National winner, when a game started twice and when a Yorkshireman captained South Africa. For a county that is justifiably proud of its teams down the years this is a book that supporters will repeatedly refer to.
