The next meeting of the Lincolnshire Cricket Lovers’ Society focuses on a topical theme – the First World War.
Current 100th anniversary commemorations coincide with the visit of author Brian Halford whose 11 years of research have unearthed and explored the identity of the man who was the inspiration behind the P G Wodehouse character Jeeves.
Born in Dewsbury and brought up in Goole, bowler Percy Jeeves played 50 games for Warwickshire and was on the verge of the
team when World War 1 intervened. England
Halford’s book The Real Jeeves explores the player’s life before and during the conflict and reveals how Wodehouse modelled his character on Percy Jeeves after seeing him play in a county match.
Coincidentally, the foreword to the book is provided by Dennis Amiss, who will be the speaker at the Cricket Lovers’ Society December meeting.
Brian Halford will be at Cleethorpes Cricket Club on Thursday, November 13. The evening starts at 7.30pm and is free to Society members and £5 for guests.
