FOULSHAM produced a cricket team for the first time in over 50 years on Sunday when they played Elsing in the settings of Elsing Hall.

The team consisted of many of the old Bintree and Foulsham team which was founded by the late Les Heyhoe and 'Snaggles' Rutland. Les' son and grandson played, as well as Snaggles' son Colin. Nine of the team were related.

Chris Crane, who plays for Fakenham, started his cricket career, with his brother Stuart, at the Bintree ground alongside Fakenham's current first team captain Sean Cooper.

Paul Bushell and Johnny Clipston opened the batting for Foulsham and put on 70 before Clipston was caught for 25. Colin Rutland's first scoring shot was a six. Bushell was out for a stylish 78. Graham Wade (38) and Rutland (67) put on 68 as Foulsham made 252.
