Product description

Product Description

Boxing Day, Melbourne 2010: a packed house of over 80,000 sits down to watch the crucial fourth Test unfold. Three days later, only 12,000 remain - and it's just the Barmy Army, celebrating as England retain the Ashes. They run through their full repertoire of songs, cheering on England's success. Meanwhile, the England players salute those who have made the effort to be there, spending thousands of pounds to support their side, inspiring them to another great victory.

What was it like to be there? How did it come to pass that thousands gathered together? Who is the trumpeter? Who came up with the songs? What else do the Barmy Army get up to when the cricket finishes? This book answers all those questions, and many more, providing a brilliant and hilarious insight to life on tour with the Barmy Army. For those who were there, it will bring back a flood of memories. For those who weren't, this book will show you what you missed, and why you need to join in next time to have the time of your life.
