New Don Kenyon Book Launch To Be Staged In Hick Pavilion

New Don Kenyon Book Launch To Be Staged In Hick Pavilion

The new book on former Worcestershire captain Don Kenyon  – 'Don Kenyon – His Own Man' will be officially launched in September.

The author, Tim Jones, will be available to sign copies in the Graeme Hick Pavilion on September 22 – the first day of the final LV = County Championship match of the season against Middlesex.

He is a well known and popular figure at New Road as chairman of the Worcestershire Heritage Group and a member of the Worcestershire Board.

Opening batsman Kenyon remains Worcestershire's record run-scorer with 37,002 and skippered the county to their 1964 and 1965 County Championship triumphs.

But the book also gives an absorbing insight into the personality of Kenyon – as the title indicates. It costs £15 – plus an extra £2 for postage – and consists of 260 pages and 55,000 words.

Anyone unable to attend the book launch, can contact Jones to order a copy via email at or drop him a text on 07890138682.

Jones said: "The book launch will be a chance for people to come along and purchase a copy and meet me.

"We have quite a few advanced orders and that's just by mentioning it around the ground. It's been a really good response.

"I am inviting all those people who have expressed an interest, those people who have helped or provided information or articles or who were interviewed by me."
