Thirteen is a number seen as unlucky by some – but not if you’re Middlesex County Cricket Club. That’s how many times the Seaxes have claimed domestic cricket’s greatest prize, the County Championship.

Edward VII was on the throne when Middlesex first flew the Championship ensign above the iconic Lord’s pavilion, while few will forget the scenes surrounding their most recent success in 2016.

We trace those triumphs from the days of Sir Pelham Warner, through the Compton and Edrich post-war successes to the golden years under Mike Brearley and Mike Gatting and culminating in Toby Roland-Jones’ hat-trick seven years ago.

With the help of the archives and eye witnesses, such as Gatting, John Emburey, Mike Selvey, Norman Cowans and more, we recapture the drama and the inside story of the greatest days in Middlesex’s history.

With the future of red-ball cricket under the microscope, there could hardly be a better time to relive the triumphs of those on the north side of the River Thames and reflect on the oldest form of the game.
