Somerset Cricket The Glory Years

In 2010 Somerset Cricket Museum acquired a unique archive of images relating to the history of the club between 1973 and 1990. Taken by Taunton-based photographer Alain Lockyer, they chronicle some of the years of the County’s greatest success, including the period known as the Glory Years during which Somerset won five one day trophies in as many seasons.

Garner, Richards, Botham, Rose and a host of fine players feature in this superb collection which not only highlights exciting action from classic matches, but candid behind-the- scenes shots of the players both at rest and at play.

Together the pictures are an irreplaceable document of the Country’s greatest cricket team at the height of its powers, and this book which is the first publication to feature the collection widely, will be read eagerly not only by fans of Somerset but devotees of the summer game as a whole.

Accompanying the pictures is a fine and informative text by County Museum Trustee and journalist Richard Walsh, to complete this remarkable visual history, packed with classic memories.

Alain Lockyer is a professional photographer who has run the Taunton-based Somerset Photo News agency for more than four decades covering National news and pictures and who has captured the activity of Somerset County Cricket Club assiduously in that time.

Richard Walsh lives in Taunton and is a freelance journalist who has been following the fortunes of Somerset CCC for over 40 years. He regularly writes for the Western Morning News, the Somerset County Gazette, and the Sunday Independent, in addition to which he has been the editor of the official Somerset CCC website since it was first established in 2001.

ISBN 978 0 85704 113 5. Imprint: Halsgrove, hardback, 297x210mm, 144 pages. Published September 2012.
