Abstract

Cricket in the North and South of England, has historically been attributed or ‘imagined’ in diametrically opposite and stereotyped terms. As the above quote from a display at the Bradman Museum at Bowral in NSW, Australia implies; namely a ‘competitive’ professional North and a ‘genteel’ amateur South. This paper will examine the ‘invention’ of these regionalised narratives, identify sources, and question the extent to which these opposing identities exist.
