RICHARD TOMLINSON AT THE CRICKET SOCIETIES

Date: 16th January 2019

RICHARD TOMLINSON AT THE CRICKET SOCIETIES

Amazing Grace in 2019!

The first Guest Speaker in 2019 to our two Cricket Societies is Richard Tomlinson author of  Amazing Grace –The man who was W.G.” who will talk about the subject of his book.

A historian and former playing member of MCC, Richard Tomlinson received his Ph.D. from Cambridge University before becoming an award-winning international journalist with the IndependentFortune and other publications in Europe, North America and Asia.

In Amazing Grace: The Man who was W.G., Tomlinson combines his passion for cricket and historian's eye to connect Grace's astounding feats on the playing field with an imperial landscape populated by a Dickensian cast of characters who crossed his majestic path, from failed Australian gold rush speculators and an American Civil War hero, to the syphilitic secretary of MCC……

The photograph attached above shows the England cricket team which toured Australia in 1891-2, with WG Grace (seated, third from left) as captain.

He will be speaking to the West Lancs Society this Wednesday 16th January at the Royal Clifton Hotel Southport at 7.30pm and also this Thursday 17th January at 7.30pm at Sefton Park C.C.

Guests and new Members are very welcome to come to either - or to both!.
