“I am more than happy to give you permission to use my interview and photographs on this website.”
Bryan Stott is one of the most charming people you are ever likely to meet.
Locally, Bryan is known through his family businesses in Yeadon and Rawdon; Stotts Plumbers and Stotts Outfitters. On a much wider field Bryan was a well-known and respected Yorkshire County Cricketer who, in his own words, had a unique – if non-conformist – style of batting. It was a batting style peculiar only to Bryan and it worked!
A Yeadon boy who was just five years old at the start of WW2, Bryan has lots of stories to tell. You must listen to the stories about Bryan’s grandmother, a truly unbelievable and generous woman, way ahead of her time.
So, if you want to know how a county cricketer is made, it starts at the age of two!
