FOWLMERE staged a cricket match for the first time in 68 years at the weekend, as the new venue for Thriplow thirds, who entertained Elmdon.
Playing on the Fowlmere sports field, the visitors batted first.
Elmdon played with caution against accurate Thriplow bowling, with V Badcock and Burlin forming an opening partnership of 37 before they were both bowled by Kevin Scully.
Potter and Teame came to the crease only for Potter to be out by Tom Staley, with Teame being bowled by Kevin Scully for 5.

D Badcock joined Kimberly and they set about increasing the Elmdon run rate, by taking the game to Thriplow's trio of Scully, Staley and 15-year-old Max Baron.
Kimberly top scored for Elmdon with 29, and D Badcock (11), M Reeves (11), J Reeves (12) and Seymore (12) all chipped in to take them to 137 all out.

Baron took five Elmdon wickets for only 24 runs, and Kevin Scully finished with figures of 3-20 and Ally Cliffe 1-20.
In reply, Thriplow's young batsmen were unable to apply themselves as well as their Elmdon counterparts, and consistently lost wickets to the bowling of Foxley 2-10, M Reeves 2-19, Badcock 2-34 and Starr 3-24.
Ed Russell (16) and John Berks (11) briefly flourished, but it was left to the elder Kevin Scully's 17 runs and Nick Cliffe's 20 to restore some credibility.
Thriplow ended on 108 all out leaving Elmdon deserved winners.
