#039;I can truthfully say that there has never been a nicer man in the game. George Chesterton is a gentleman to the core. And he wasn't a bad bowler either!' Tom Graveney OBE. Wartime pilot dropping supplies over occupied Europe, county cricketer, housemaster teaching and disciplining mischievous teenage boys, family man and civic figure, there have been few dull moments in George Chesterton's life. And he can probably manage to turn even those into amusing anecdotes. Andrew Murtagh tells the story of this remarkable man.


Andrew Murtagh was educated at St Joseph's College, Beulah Hill, in London, a grammar school founded by the De La Salle Order of Christian Brothers. He went to Southampton University to read English. His desire to do a combined honours course with cricket was rejected by the university authorities, but he did it anyway. In the 1970s, he played professional cricket for Hampshire and played in the team that won the county championship in 1973 and the John Player League in 1975. In 1980, he joined Malvern College to teach English and to run the cricket, remaining in those posts for the following thirty years. He was a housemaster for eighteen of those years and, as he wryly points out, you get less for murder these days. Following the conclusion of his time as a schoolmaster, he has embarked on his third career as a writer. He met his wife, Lin, at university. They have three grown-up children and they now live in a quiet village in Worcestershire.
