Any Old Eleven


What makes grown men squander Saturday afternoons trying to do something they will never be any good at, risking ridicule and serious physical injury . . . For no reward whatsoever? According to Jim Young, it's park cricket. In Young's hilarious memoir he recalls his experiences as a member of the spectacularly incompetent cricket team, the NOBs (Naughton Old Boys) - a collection of eccentric but likeable characters who played during the late 1970s and 1980s before sinking into cricket oblivion. Their passion for cricket, beer and life, along with humorous accounts of on-field 'incidents', non-regulation uniforms and athletic disasters will have you laughing out loud.
