THERE are few former Town players quite like Ken Taylor.
Not content at being one of only four men to play football for Town and cricket for Yorkshire, he also found time to study at the Slade School of Fine Art in London.
He was good enough at the summer game to play three Test matches for England, and his first-class career, from 1953-68, scored more than 13,000 runs, helping Yorkshire win the championship seven times as well as the Gillette Cup in 1965.
He played 269 games for Town, mainly as a midfielder, between 1953 and 1965, when he joined Bradford Park Avenue.
Having missed the 1963-64 football season to play cricket in New Zealand, he later headed out to South Africa to teach art and coach cricket and football at a school in Cape Town.
Primrose Hill-born Taylor, whose brother Jeff played football for Town, Fulham and Brentford, and then became an opera singer, returned to Britain in the early Seventies, settling in Norfolk, where he continued to coach cricket and paint.
It's a fascinating life, and one the 70-year-old recalls in a new book Drawn to Sport (Fairfield Books), written by Bath-based journalist and author Stephen Chalke and featuring many of Taylor's works.
The book, which includes memories of playing football with Denis Law and Ray Wilson under manager Bill Shankly and cricket alongside Geoff Boycott, Fred Trueman and Brian Close, costs £20.
But we have four to give away, and to have a chance of winning one, simply answer this question:
