Featuring Adam Gilchrist, Gordon Greenidge, Malcolm Marshall, Viv Richards, Jacques Kallis, Mohammad Azharuddin, Garry Sobers, Andre Russell, Wasim Akram, Shane Warne, Shane Bond, Courtney Walsh, Matt Hayden, Mark Taylor, Mark Waugh, VVS Laxman, Kevin Pietersen, AB de Villiers, Steve Waugh, Shahid Afridi, Kapil Dev, Allan Donald, Curtly Ambrose, Imran Tahir.

With stories from the Lancashire League, Birmingham League, Bradford League, Bolton League, Northern League, North Staffs League, Northumberland League and Middlesex League, as well as Cumbria and Northern Ireland.

PRAISE FOR STICKY DOGS AND STARDUST

Oliver has done a magnificent job researching and recovering these stories, delving into mildewed scorebooks, interviewing teammates and opponents.
Anthony McGowan, Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack

Oliver clearly has a profound understanding of and love for the local game
Anthony McGowan, Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack

The [Book of the Year award] goes to Sticky Dogs and Stardust, for its fund of astonishing stories, which would have remained untold without Scott Oliver’s labours, and for the élan and verve of his writing.
Anthony McGowan, Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack

This book was a cracking idea
Martin Chandler, CricketWeb.net

This book is a gem. Reading and relishing this labour of love from freelance journalist and club cricketer Scott Oliver, one can easily understand why it was shortlisted for The Cricket Society and MCC Book of the Year Award.
Philip Fisher, Cricket Society Journal

The rollercoaster ride to a seasonal climax is so grippingly well written that it rivals the best ever writing about social cricket in Hugh de Selincourt’s The Cricket Match or AG McDonnell’s England Their England.
Philip Fisher, Cricket Society Journal

A rip-roaring journey through league cricket full of heart-warming stories, tales of derring-do and some brilliantly absurd anecdotes […] A passion to tell these stories leaps off every page like a Curtly Ambrose bouncer.
