Peterborough Town CC, Crawthorne Road

Two images showing the old Peterborough Town cricket ground off Crawthorne Road where they played up to 1970 when they moved to their current base at Bretton Gate.

The top image dates to 1963 and the lower one to 1972 which suggests the team in that one is not Peterborough Town.
