The Tony Webb Collection

Much of this material was compiled by Tony Webb whilst researching for the ACS project for the collection of Minor Counties Championship Match Scores 1895 to date. Tony has generously allowed the paper archive to be scanned and made available on-line. We are grateful to him for this.

The material is available on the CricketHistory website - but this is very much a work in progress.

A search for scorecards function is available to help you get to a scorecard directly. However, this is still a work in progress and not all the files below are included in the search at the moment. Please contact us if you could help with this.

The seasons

Each season is presented in one or more sections:

  • A series of newspaper cuttings organised by county. Researchers should be aware that the information given for a county is not comprehensive - it is the information collected by Tony whilst researching a specific topic. Researchers should also bear in mind that newspapers often covered news from other counties too.
  • A series of information on Minor Counties Championship matches organised by match. These are essentially the raw material for the books, showing related newspaper reports and iterations of research as the scorecard is updated with new or corrected information.
  • A section of general correspondence about the Minor Counties Championship matches for the season.
