Clive and Janet Frusher gathered with family at the Harecroft Road ground for the unveiling on April 14.

A plaque displayed on the bench read: “In celebration of 50 years of happy marriage between Janet and Clive Frusher. A fine Fen couple – hailing from Walpole St Andrew and Walton Highway – who first met and fell in love at a cricket match in the Wisbech surrounds…”

Bob Burgess, chairman of the club, said: “From a club point of view we can only say that we were delighted to be able to help to commemorate their family milestone. It shows the importance of the social network that cricket has always been able to support and lasts beyond the playing field.

“The family did also indulge the club by purchasing several ‘Crockey Dive’ entries for our big draw to be held later this year.”
