The Tony Webb Collection

Most 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.

Each season is presented in several 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.
