Description

Slipless In Settle is a sentimental journey around club cricket in the north of England, a world far away from clich?d lengthening-shadows-on-the-village-green image of the summer game. This is hardcore cricket played in former pit villages and mill towns, places with names that sound like 1930s comedians, places that look straight out of The League of Gentlemen. It is about the clubs that have, down the years, produced some of the greatest players England has ever seen.
