The History of Kent County Cricket Club
This history of Kent County Cricket Club is part of a series of 17 volumes, each featuring one of the first-class cricket counties. All the writers have close links with their counties and the titles have the full backing of the clubs concerned. Each volume contains an extended introduction by a famous name, followed by a chronological account of the club from its origins to the close of the 1987 season, highlighting the personalities and the great matches in the club's history. Full scorecards of selected matches are included, several in facsimile, together with profiles of leading individual players. In addition, there is a full statistical section, including county records and career records for every cricketer to play for the club. Many of the photographs used are from the club archives and are hitherto unpublished.
