Glamorgan CCC Miscellany collects together all the vital information you never knew you needed to know about the Dragons. In these pages you will find irresistible anecdotes and the most mindblowing stats and facts. Heard the one about the opposing vicar who scored a hundred, the game when Glamorgan only had five fielders, or the side that were all born in Wales? How about the times when a number 11 was top scorer for the county, or when a batsman was dismissed twice in the space of a minute? Do you know who was keeping wicket when Glamorgan won the 1969 Championship? Who took a wicket with his first-ever ball? Or who was the club's tallest ever player? All these stories and hundreds more appear in a brilliantly researched collection of trivia - essential for any Dragons fan who holds the riches of the club's history close to their heart.
The author of more than a dozen cricket books, Dr Andrew Hignell has been the Glamorgan 1st XI scorer since 1982. Formerly a teacher at Wells Cathedral School, Andrew took up his present role as full-time archivist at Glamorgan County Cricket Club in 2005, and is also secretary of the Association of Cricket Statisticians and Historians.
