Based in the railway town of Wolverton in North Buckinghamshire, Wolverton Town CC was founded by staff from the Railway Works in 1894. In 1901, they settled at their home ground in Osborne Street where they continue to play today. This comprehensive and fascinating book is a labour of love written by former Railway Works employee and Wolverton Town CC player Colin Kightley. It charts the highs and lows of Wolverton Town CC, including being homeless at the turn of the century and becoming Champions of the Northants County League in 1972. It contains full statistics for all players who have represented the Club between 1894 & 2011 and gives a detailed account of the Wolverton KO Cup, one of the oldest cricket knockout competitions in the country. In addition, match reports from the finals of the Railway Shops Competition.

An interesting read and a must for any cricket enthusiast.
