A chance to meet some of the Lancashire XI team who played England at the Cricket Festival in Blackpool. Captain Jack Sharp, cricketer and former Everton F.C. footballer, clearly enjoys the attention, and we also see Leonard Green (Lancashire Club Captain from 1926 - 28), Alfred Pewtress, and a bashful George Duckworth - the youngest of the XI, who seems quite overwhelmed by the camera's presence.
