(years) not out! - a history of cricket in Horsham
One hundred years after the first
movie film of County Cricket at Horsham, it seemed a
good idea to review the history of Horsham cricket.
We learn that cricket started here nearly 250 years
ago and is still going strong. We hear about the
characters and the circumstances which have shaped
cricket in the town. We see some of the triumphs
which have made the Cricket Club the success that it
is today. We also see glimpses of how other sports
have joined to form today's Horsham Sports Club.
The 1913 film was donated to The
Horsham Society by the family of the late Harold
Scott, projectionist at the Central Picture Hall.
The still photographs have been donated by various
individuals and organisations as credited at the end
of the film.
This DVD will be of interest to both
cricket enthusiasts and to local historians.
