This is a book that takes you through Bumble's life from a young lad growing up in Accrington, Manchester in the late forties. The book follows his love of sports in general and his love for Accrington Stanley Football Club. 
His progression from local cricket to Lancashire youth and senior teams is well charted as is his selection for England as both player and coach. This is a good informative read ...full of Bumble's opinions and stories. 
If you enjoy cricket and if you enjoy the banter that is cricket commentary then you will enjoy this book. 
It is a perfect summer read....Start the Car. 

...Keep reading, Ivor Kindle.
