The fourth in a series of short-run, limited edition monographs recollecting Red Rose cricket records, this publication recalls the match at Aigburth, Liverpool, between Lancashire and Yorkshire on 10, 11, 12 July 1913. The non-championship first class match, arranged to coincide with the visit of King George V and Queen Mary to Liverpool, saw Burnley-born Lancashire professional Harry Dean take 17-91, despite him being embarrassingly absent from the ground when play started. They remain Lancashire’s record bowling figures, the best in Roses history and are the best recorded by any bowler against Yorkshire in first-class cricket.
