The first in a series of short-run, limited edition monographs recollecting Red Rose cricket records, the publication recalls the opening day’s play in the Lancashire v. Kent county championship match at Old Trafford, Manchester, on 7 June 1906. The Whit-week fixture, in which Kent’s Frank Woolley made his debut in first-class cricket, saw Lancashire’s John Tommy Tyldesley make the highest score of his illustrious career. Giving due regard to Tyldesley’s record innings, the monograph further notes his well deserved bumper benefit, one which would remain the record for the county for over 40 years.
