Synopsis

Three times an Ashes winner, Trevor Bailey is regarded along with Ian Botham as Englands premier all-rounder since the Second World War. He was a schoolboy prodigy at Dulwich College and won cricket and soccer blues at Cambridge University and an FA Amateur Cup winners medal with Walthamstow in 1951/2. At the heart of the story is the fighting spirit of a loyalist who served England and his home county Essex so well in a crisis. Bailey played in 61 Tests in which he became only the second Englishman to score 2000 runs and take 100 wickets. After retirement from first-class cricket, he became a broadcaster on the BBCs Test Match Special programme.
