Cricket Bats 1974

5 mins United Kingdom

Using the experience he gained playing first class cricket for Worcestershire, Duncan Fearnley set up a business making bats for the country's best players. Here we see him being visited in his Worcester workshop by the Warwickshire and England player Dennis Amiss who was an early exponent of the Fearnley bat. Amiss was shortly to take his bats on the 1974-'75 Ashes tour of Australia where as an opener he racked up 175 runs over the six match series.

The Media Archive for Central England is the public screen archive for the East and West Midlands. An independent charity and company based at the University of Lincoln, MACE acquires, catalogues, preserves and makes widely available moving image materials that inform our understanding of the diverse cultures and histories of communities between the Lincolnshire coast and the Welsh border.
