After the driving of yesterday, it was a gentle walk to Headingley. It was the first day of the Yorkshire against Northampton in the first County Championship match at Headingley.Arriving at 9,30 I pinned up the information supplied by Nigel Pullan and Paul Dyson about the history of matches played against the two counties.
As I sat down William Roberts was sorting out his new stock for this season and I noticed the above boolet which I purchased.. The booklet is about the history of the club were Ephraim Lockwood was professional in 1864.I have diary kept my his wife of Ephraim,s about his scores.
Next cricket memorabilia to arrive was a players tie of 1964 tour to America were Gary Sobers played some matches for Yorkshire.
At tea-time I wondered over to the bookstore to think them for the tie which had been given to them.
Beenwhile back on the field Garry Ballance went on to be 117 not out and Yorkshire 328 for 7 which did not seem possible this morning. Lees was given out L.BW for 90 after been involved in a partnership of 156.
See what to-morrow brings.
