New Book - Wanstead CC 1978 & 1979

30 Jul 2019

In 1978 Wanstead C.C. won the Essex League for the first time when they secured victory in the last league match of the season. A year later they repeated that success in a campaign that also required them to win the final league fixture. Pete Long – who played at the club from 1972 to 1993 - has compiled a record of those two seasons, and his book documents, week by week, the highs and lows of 1978 and 1979 as the club sought to capture, and then retain, the highly prized championship.

Produced in a very limited edition of just 79 copies, the book can be obtained by contacting Martin Pluck at pluckmartin@gmail.com.

I would like to thank Pete for not only writing this book but also paying for its production. All proceeds will go to Project Heron.
