In the early 1900s Felmersham CC was also known as the The Toff Team and they played in the meadow on the Sharnbrook side of the river.
On occasions they were umpired by Squire Green who lived at The Grange. Hence the name Toff.

The Cricket Club reach their maximum bid of 24,000 for the field but unfortunately two other parties were also biding. The field was sold to for 31,000.
