Sutton U17 v Stoke T20 - July 2016 1

Excellent T20 Evening at Sutton

Tuesday 19th July 2016
T20 Friendly
Sutton U17 147 for 8 (20 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 138 for 9 (20 Overs)
Sutton Under 17s won by 9 runs

Great relations between Stoke and Sutton were further enhanced as both Clubs got a game on despite Stoke not having enough Under 17s, (due to holidays), to play the original cup tie. The Stokers originally selected, (many well under the age of 17), were supplemented by some senior assistance from Rod, Ralphie and Charlie Thomas.

T20 at Sutton Tonight – Players Needed

There is the good news and bad news, writes Rod.

The bad news is that we have been unable to raise a team of eleven Under 17 players for tonight’s cup game against Sutton, and so have had to concede.

The good news is that we suggested that we play a friendly T20 game with a Stoke XI containing a few over-17s/seniors on what is likely to be a very warm and pleasant evening, and the Sutton manager has agreed that this would be a good idea.

More good news from Kevin…

Batting first Richmond where overwhelmed by Stoke’s strong bowling. The first four overs saw 4 wickets for no runs or extras. Jack R was deadly with his two overs, taking 3 wickets including a double wicket maiden supported by James M bowling 2 maidens with a run out. Marcus N then delivered 2 wickets for only 1 run from his two overs, an impressive start.

Tarrant Hat-Trick but Stoke positivity goes unrewarded

Saturday 16th July 2016
Travelbag Surrey Championship – Division 5
Stoke D’Abernon 260 for 7 declared (49.5 overs)
Old Emanuel 263 for 6 (42.2 overs)
Old Emanuel won by 4 wickets

Stoke didn’t do a lot wrong in this one but there was a lot of head-scratching after a solid batting performance and a positive declaration went unrewarded. Some days you just have to say well played to the opposition.
