The eighth in a series of short-run, limited edition monographs recollecting Red Rose cricket records, this publication recalls the county championship match between Lancashire and Sussex at Old Trafford, Manchester, on 30 June, 1, 2 July 1890. The rain-affected match saw Johnny Briggs, Lancashire’s greatest ever all round cricketer, become the first man to score a century and take 10 wickets in a first class match for the county. The feat has only been performed five times in Lancashire county cricket history: by Briggs in 1890, 1892, and 1893; Len Hopwood in 1933; and Mike Watkinson in 1994.
