EDITORS COMMENTS
Capturing the historic moment, this print showcases Lancashire County Cricket Club's first indoor coaching school at Old Trafford. The members dining room was transformed into a hub of training and instruction as Nigel Howard, the esteemed captain, inaugurated the facility by taking his turn at bat. Amidst the excitement, one of the skilled coaches, Geoff Edrich, is seen guiding 18-year-old Douglas T. Rossington in perfecting his grip on the cricket bat. A promising talent from Winton CC and a student at Manchester University, Rossington eagerly absorbs every ounce of knowledge imparted to him in pursuit of his dreams. The year was 1951 when this snapshot froze an important milestone for cricket enthusiasts everywhere. The image not only captures a significant moment in Lancashire County Cricket Club's history but also reflects the dedication and passion that drives young athletes like Rossington to hone their skills relentlessly. As we delve into this memory from yesteryears through Mirrorpix's lens, let us appreciate how sports can bring communities together and inspire generations to strive for excellence. This photo serves as a timeless reminder that even within humble beginnings – such as converting a dining room into an indoor coaching haven – greatness can be nurtured.
