The Forty Club (England; this article dated 25 April 2005)

When Henry Grierson established the Forty Club in 1936 it was to be a crusade – high-class players were to be an example to youth both in standards of play and general behaviour. Nowadays the values are much the same, so if you are over 40, or nearly so, and looking for good class competitive non-league cricket, mostly against schools, then give The Forty Club a serious cricketing thought.

With 3300 members, an annual UK fixtures card of some 145 schools matches plus a further 70 youth and club matches; with sister clubs in Holland and Denmark which compete in an annual international tournament; with annual autumn tours (South Africa 2004, Australia 2006) and annual spring tours (Malta 2005, UAE in 2004); and all this plus an annual domestic tournament, there’s lots to attract the experienced club cricketer.

A Trip down Cricket's Memory Lane

This fascinating film of England v Australia at Lord's, narrated by John Arlott and Ralph Richardson, introduces the viewer “to a very revered patch of English turf, plumb in line with the Pavilion” and guides us through the game.

It features footage of Bradman, Compton, Hutton, and Dexter, as well as a spin-bowling master-class from Bert Rhodes who pitches balls that Graeme Swann would be proud of.

Beautifully shot, the film is an incredible tribute to a game that “began in quiet places, and lives on in quiet places, deep in the hearts of those who love it”.

This film is part of a collection of films from the British Council’s archive, now released online to the public for the first time.

The archive, preserved by the BFI, dates back to the British Council’s inception in 1934. Thirteen films are now available at timeimage.org.uk/​ and many more will be uploaded over the coming months.
