Author(s): Bob Cattell
Glory Gardens C.C. are now in the North County Under Thirteen League, and the pressure is really on. Hooker, as captain, worries that the team won't be able to hold it together: arrogant Clive is always picking fights, Ohbert is still as useless as ever, and there are all the usual rows and injuries. But there's also Mack, the new player; the lucky mascot 'Gatting'; plus the whole team's unwavering determination to win against all the odds.
A unique cricket fiction series with added extras - reissued with striking new covers and a new look!
"Couldn't recommend them highly enough" Test Match Special, BBC Radio 4 "Bob Cattell's tales couldn't be more wholesome if they came with bran and a fireside singsong ... The books are fast-moving and, as you would expect, genuinely exciting" All Out Cricket
