Stoddy: England’s Finest Sportsman by 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 45 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 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 century of the tragic death of Drewy Stoddart.

This book is also available to order in a limited edition cover signed by the author. Please email for details.
