    Librarian David Studham (pictured here, left, with assistant librarian Trevor Ruddell) was more than delighted that The Yorker, first published in 1993 and now available by subscription, had been given such an accolade by ISHA.  

    The Yorker features a potpourri of material researched and written by library staff and a loyal band of productive volunteers who write on anything from skittles to squash and lawn bowls to baseball, plus the many characters associated with the club and the ground over the years. Book reviews are also on the menu.

    Its broad charter brings into play the vast resources of the MCC collections, allowing themes and individuals to be examined and showcased to great effect. In short, there’s something for everyone with a sporting interest.
