Runs on the Board & the grey fox trophy A celebration of over 50s cricket

‘Runs on the Board’ – an artists’ celebration of amateur cricket in Yorkshire – was conceived by Graham Roberts and commissioned by  imove, as a project for Yorkshire’s Cultural Olympiad 2012.

The Grey Fox Trophy, the  limited overs knock-out competition for over 50s sides, is an integral element, providing a focus for the artists’ attention.

In 2011 Runs on the Board commissioned photographer Anton Want and poet Andrew McMillan to produce a body of new work celebrating the character of over 50s cricket and the characters mad enough to still haul their creaking, brittle, bones out onto the pitch.

A perfect gift for anyone interested in Yorkshire Cricket or Over 50's CricketThe New Runs on the Board Book is available to order here.

In 2013 four artists: Lucy Carolan, Steve Toase, Nick Ahad and Jonny Walton have been commissioned to add new work to the Runs on the Board collection.
