The sixth in a series of short-run, limited edition monographs recollecting Red Rose cricket records, this publication recalls a match played at Sparth Bottoms, Rochdale, home of Castleton Cricket Club. The county fixture between Lancashire and Kent, the only first-class match ever played on the ground, took place on 15, 16, 17 June 1876. The two famed Lancashire professional bowlers, Will McIntyre and Alec Watson featured strongly, with the latter taking a hat-trick in Kent’s second innings, the first occasion on which the feat had been performed by a Lancashire bowler in first-class cricket.
