Current first team wicketkeeper at the club, Gary Forder, suggested a signed copy should be presented to Mr Stanton in recognition to his long-standing association with the club and his unstinting support.

The only other Norfolk cricket grounds to feature in the nationwide book are Holkham and Aldborough.

Mr Levinson, a writer of several cricket books who has a lifelong interest in the sport, sent his photographer David Major to Snettisham in early summer this year to take some pictures of a match at the ground with the iconic St Marys Church in the background.

The ground was then published in the 224-page Pavillion Books edition, which costs £25.

Snettisham Cricket Club is welcoming new members for the 2019 season, including men, women and youth players from the ages of five to 18.
