Mark Peel

Having read History at Edinburgh University, Mark Peel taught History and Politics at Fettes for twenty-four years from 1983 to 2007, whereupon he gave up teaching to concentrate full-time on his writing. He is an award-winning author who, in addition to biographies of Shirley Williams, Donald Soper and the 14th Duke of Hamilton, has written eight cricket books. Mark has penned biographies of Ken Barrington (The Cricket Society’s Book of the Year in 1992), Colin Cowdrey, Colin Milburn, and Mike Brearley. His Ambassadors of Goodwill: On Tour with the MCC 1946/47-1970/71 was one of the six shortlisted titles for The Cricket Society/MCC Book of the Year in 2019 whilst Playing the Game? The Ethics of Cricket from Bodyline to the  Present was shortlisted for The Telegraph Cricket book of the Year in 2019. In The Hollow Crown: The England Cricket Captaincy from 1945 to the Present Mark presents portraits of each of England’s 43 post-war captains, examines the huge demands placed upon them and why so few of them demit office with their reputations enhanced. His latest book, published in August 2021, is another biography, Never Surrender: The Life of Douglas Jardine.

West of Scotland meetings: normally held on the second Monday of the month at 7.30 p.m. at Clydesdale CC, Beaton Road, Pollokshields, Glasgow, G41 4LA.
