Monday night at the Kenton was packed as David Gower promoted his autobiography An Endangered Species, the title inspired by his love of wildlife and the transient nature of a cricketer’s career. The subject of the talk spanned his whole career, from turning professional at eighteen for Leicestershire to becoming captain of the England team and encountering the difficulties of rebel tours and leadership differences with fellow team mates. There was many an anecdote to be had about his colleagues; admiration for their single mindedness and bemusement at their ineptitude for aspects of life off the pitch. The lasting impression from the talk was that Gower always enjoyed himself, evident in his ability to get through two large glasses of wine throughout, and that will be his lasting legacy.
