Close of Play!

Around four and a half years ago, I started writing a cricket blog. Only last year, I commenced scripting a football (Soccer) themed alternative. My interests stretch beyond those two subjects however, so I am slowly winding down both sillypointcricket.com and leftbackfooty.com.

Thank you very much to anybody and everybody who has ever taken the time to view, let alone comment on either of my blogs.

I intend to start from scratch with a new blog that will of course feature cricket and football but also primarily film and book reviews regardless of the subject matter. I might also detail other things in life such as hiking or anything else that might pique my interest.

I enjoy writing and think that it’s healthy to get some opinions off my chest and share them. I’m particularly looking forward to sharing my thoughts on films. With two young children, one of whom has some additional needs and with neither of them currently in education, it’s been challenging to find the hours to watch movies. Last night, I finally got around to watching Loving Vincent on DVD (Yeah that’s right…DVD!). I’ve also got plenty of books to read.

Once again, thank you for viewing my blogs and I look forward to meeting you in a new guise sometime in the future.

I’ve since read a few more as well, so please check out the Book Review tab on my homepage.

I’ve still got a few TBR (Is that what BookTubers call it?) in my drawer but there are some writings due for release soon that I’m looking forward to getting my hands on.

Former Zimbabwe captain come priest come selector Tatenda Taibu’s autobiography should be an insightful read. It’s due for release next month.

Former England spinner Vic Marks, widely and on this occasion correctly regarded as one of the more endearing and astute voices on the game, also has some scripture due for release this summer.

Are there any cricket books that you’ve particularly enjoyed reading or are looking forward to doing so?
