A recommended read for any cricketer! In the driest of summers, the ironically named It's Not Really Wet Rain, is a recommended read for any cricketer. Written by highly respected cricketer Simon Swinn, the book maps the first seventy years of Abberton Cricket Club, the most successful NECL club. Many landmarks for the club are charted against modern history milestones in an entertaining way. To reserve your copy at £10, contact Marc Fox on 07540 256560 or via the Abberton website or facebook page.
