"The Sweetest Rose" traces the history of Yorkshire County Cricket Club over its 150 years, from its birth in Sheffield in January, 1863, right up to the present day. It is a tale of triumph (Yorkshire have won the County Championship more times than any other county) and inner turmoil (the Club's hierarchy having been ousted by a members' revolution during the 1980s). The book spotlights the leading personalities attached to the Club, both on and off the field, and seeks to establish exactly what it is that has made it the greatest cricket club in the world. Author David Warner has reported on Yorkshire's fortunes from 1975 and for 33 years was Yorkshire cricket correspondent for three local newspapers, including the Bradford "Telegraph & Argus". He is also editor of the much acclaimed Yorkshire CCC Yearbook. His substantial collection of cuttings over almost four decades has provided him with a vast amount of information on the peaks and troughs of the White Rose county. The rich and detailed history of the world's most famous Cricket Club, in all its glory.
