Description

Five Trophies and a Funeral examines how a cricketing fairy tale became a cautionary story for sports clubs, and asks 'what next?' for Durham CCC. It features interviews with the men who made the journey from first-class new boys to the brink of extinction via a spell as the country's top team - and those now planning to restore past glories.
