Product Description

Details

Harold 'Dickie' Bird MBE is one of cricket's best loved characters and will forever be remembered as one of the games most charismatic umpires. Born in Barnsley in 1933, Dickie was a promising footballer until injury cut short his fledgling career so the youngster began to play club cricket alongside team-mates that included Geoffrey Boycott and Michael Parkinson. In 1956 Bird made his breakthrough into county cricket with Yorkshire as a batsman and during an eight year playing career at that level he also played for Leicestershire, scoring 3314 runs in 93 first class matches with a top score of 181 not out. After his retirement Bird became an umpire and officiated in his first Test match at Headingley in 1973 when England faced New Zealand. During an umpiring career that saw him umpire 66 Tests, 69 one day internationals and three World Cup finals, Bird always commanded respect from the players - with much of this down to his infectious sense of humour in the middle. A sign of the affection he is held within the game was displayed in his final Test in 1996 between England and India when both teams stood on the pitch giving him a 'guard of honour' while the crowd gave the Yorkshireman an emotional standing ovation that brought Bird to tears. Own a piece of sporting history Dickie Bird is the most charismatic umpire in the history of Test cricket and much-loved by fans and players all over the world. Dickie has picked his greatest ever England XI for us and this great presentation includes a reproduction of his choices in his own handwriting, pictures of all 11 players and 12th man - and an original hand-signed autograph of Dickie Bird himself! This is a wonderful item for any cricket fan and is a superb piece of sporting memorabilia. Each framed presentation is issued with a certificate of authenticity by our managing director.
