2020 sees Surrey County Cricket Club celebrate its 175th birthday since inception in Kennington’s Horns Tavern and now there’s an easy, beautiful way to get an encyclopedic knowledge of the Club’s history.
The book covers everything from The Oval’s early years as an iconic sports ground and Charles Alcock’s visionary development of the Club through the highs and lows of the 20th century up to the modern day Club and its world class home at the forefront of the global game.
You can pre-order it now from the Club shop for £32 with orders expected to be fulfilled by early March.
As well as a detailed and illustrated history of the Club, there are exclusive articles from journalists Jonathan Liew, Barney Ronay, Tanya Aldred, Steve James and Michael Atherton on the values and traditions that have made Surrey what it is today.
This is also your chance to ensure your name is forever linked with the Club! Every Member who is signed up for the 2020 season by 24th January will see their name featured in the book. Make sure your support of the Club is remembered for generations to come by signing up here now.
Membership guarantees you access to all Surrey home fixtures and the opportunity to attend a range of Members’ only events such as forums, dinner and the End of Season Awards. Keep your eyes peeled for a range of events that will celebrate our 175th anniversary later in the year.
