The crowds at English county cricket matches are dominated by senior citizens. Some media commentators can make rather dismissive and patronising comments about these spectators, using terms like the Gold Card Brigade, from the name used for the pensioners’ bus pass in some parts of the country. This book argues that senior cricket spectators deserve more respect. It is an observation of how these spectators behave, both individually and collectively, and a reflection on the conversations they have while they are watching cricket. The book provides an affectionate tribute to the enthusiasm, wisdom and stoicism of the older generation at our county grounds and an invitation to all of us to make sure that we value and treasure these loyal spectators.
