Jack Potter’s autobiography Born Lucky, the story of Jack Potter, Australia’s finest 12th man is available exclusively from me.
It is a magnificent full length biography, a hardback with picture covers.
Twelfth man three times for Australia without playing a Test, Jack Potter’s legacy will live forever in spearheading a vibrant set of innovative coaching structures pivotal in the advancement of many emerging champions including Shane Warne, Justin Langer and Damien Martyn at the Australian Cricket Academy.
A dashing batsman, magnificent field and brilliant leader, Potter remains among the finest cricketers not to play a Test. ‘He retired from cricket far too young,’ says the legendary Bill Lawry in his foreword. ‘Jack was a flowing strokemaker and a superlative fielder… he had balance, anticipation and could throw and catch even the hardest hit balls with stunning nonchalance.’
Forty of the first 50 copies signed by Jack and Sarah are available to the public. They are housed in quality maroon cloth slip cases (these cost $75; just email me if you would like one of these).
