Mike Brearley speaks to CLS 

Thursday, 22 April 2021

On Thursday 25 March, CLS alumni, staff and pupils had the pleasure of welcoming Old Citizen and former England cricket captain Mike Brearley (Class of 1960) to (virtually) speak to us about his recently-released book, The Spirit of Cricket, and take our questions.

Over the course of his hour-long interview with fellow Old Citizen and journalist Joe Shute (Class of 2002), Mike gave the audience fascinating insights into his captaincy and post-retirement work as a psychoanalyst.

We thank Mike for taking the time to speak to us and providing us with such an interesting evening.

You can purchase books from Mike Brearly and Joe Shute via our John Carpenter Bookshop website

His passion for the game and for captaining sides well were obvious.
