This is quite a nice little setup – and another example of a football scoreboard that was unused in summer until converted. Vermont is in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs. The score at the end of the first day’s play against Koonung Heights was home team Vermont 9/270, off 80 overs.

Vermont Cricket Club was formed in 1895. No electronic scoreboards back then!
