Lancashire's Championship winning season is once again available on a 2-disc DVD after the initial stock sold out at Christmas.
Peter Moores' assessment was spot on. "It's been a magical season," he said as we surveyed the pictures and reports from every newspaper, spread across the breakfast room at the players' Taunton hotel, the morning after Lancashire had defeated Somerset to land the 2011 LV= County Championship.
Indeed it was. Drama, thrills, excitement, passion - magic. Lancashire’s season had it all as Glen Chapple and his side battled to the end to capture the title in thrilling style.
A team written off by many at the start of the year confounded their critics by meeting every challenge thrown their way to win Lancashire’s first County Championship title since 1950 (which was shared with Surrey), and their first outright title since 1934 -77 years ago.
How did they do it? See for yourself as Moores and members of the team take you through the entire season that ended with a memorable dénouement at Taunton in September.
Using highlights from the ‘behind the arm’ cameras installed at each county ground, additional footage on the final day at Taunton, and specially filmed interviews with the players, this is a unique insight from the dressing room on how a group of predominantly young Lancastrians landed the biggest prize of them all.
2011 turned out to be a ‘Magical Season’ indeed!
Introduced by Gordon Burns, this 2-disc DVD contains a month-by-month account of the season, the reception at Buckingham Palace, where the players received their Championship medals from the Duke of Edinburgh, and highlights from the Player of the Year Dinner.
The 'Extras' disc contains some of the players 'Champagne Moments', plus interviews with Glen Chapple, Gary Keedy and Mark Chilton, plus and an extended interview on the season with Head Coach Peter Moores.
The total running time is approximately 3 hours and 30 minutes.
