The third Sport in History Podcast brought to you by the British Society of Sport History in association with the Institute of Historical Research features a paper by Jeremy Lonsdale. Jeremy has had two works published recently on the history of Yorkshire cricket (pictured below) and shared his insights into the early history of the game.
Jeremy talked to us about the development of Yorkshire cricket in the nineteenth century and the way in which working men used the game to carve out a new way of making a living, and in the process forged Yorkshire into a cricketing nation with a distinct identity compared to the game’s birthplace in the south.
We also preview the next podcast which will feature an interview with Raf which covers the Women’s Ashes, women’s history and the history of women’s cricket in England and around the world.
Tune in for a lively discussion!
