Roger said “The book highlights our growing up through childhood, adolescence and into our adult years but its Keith’s cricketing achievements that take centre stage.”
The 138 page book is packed with snap shots of games and photos throughout the decades and details the wickets Keith has taken throughout his cricket journey.
Roger added: “Keith has entertained cricket lovers in the Rossendale Valley for over 40 years.
“The book seemed the right thing to do to acknowledge not only our friendship but aslo more importantly his achievements, his contribution to cricket in Rossendale and his status as a Lancashire League legend.”
