Waresley continued their 150th anniversary celebrations last Friday – with a repeat of a fixture first staged in 1869!
And just as when they did battle in the 19th century, the home side came out on top when beating local rivals Gamlingay by four wickets in a Twenty20 clash.
The visitors reached 104-8 largely thanks to a terrific 45 from Lee Collett which included 10 fours before being removed by the bowling of Waresley veteran Steve Slater.
Pete Colebrook and Angus Flint claimed two wickets apiece for Waresley but the hosts' hero was overseas ace Tim Mulholland whose half-century carried them to the brink of a victory sealed by a boundary from captain Steve Warman.
Mulholland hit eight fours in a classy 51.
