England's Finest Sportsman

 David Frith

In 1970 David Frith published his first book – My Dear Victorious Stod. It won the inaugural Cricket Society Book of the Year award and set a new standard for cricketing biographies. Now, 45 years (and 34 books) later, the world's pre-eminent cricket writer and historian returns to his 'first love' with a new edition entitled 'Stoddy': England's Finest Sportsman. With an abundance of new information, insights, revelations and photographs the fascinating life of a fascinating man in a fascinating age has been re-ignited in Frith's own inimitable style. An apt commemoration of the centenary of the tragic death of Drewy Stoddart


This luxurious book of 360 pages and 156 photographs (many previously unpublished) is now available only as a limited signed edition of 100 copies.


"Frith is an excellent historian. His research is painstaking and thorough and he was a good enough player to have insights into the game that many writers on the game, otherwise almost as well qualified, singularly lack."

Martin Chandler, Cricket Web
