Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all our Playing & Social Members, Sponsors and those who also follow us on this site, our Twitter feed and our male & female Facebook pages.

The countdown to the 2019 season is underway – indeed the Over 40s have been netting since pretty much the end of last season right up to Christmas. Contact Kev and Timmy for details of the next sessions there.

Let’s start the year with some good news. Congrats to Nat on being voted in the ICC’s T20 Team of the Year. (Full story here : https://www.icc-cricket.com/news/959051) Nat still stays in contact with the Club where it all began for her, and regularly drops us a line to say that she follows the progress of the ladies team from wherever she is in the globe.

If you fancy being part of the next generation of the Stoke Women’s XI, drop us a line and we’ll give you more details. Players of all ages and abilities are welcome!

At junior level, for those looking to get into, (or back into), the game with the World Cup and The Ashes on home soil this year, please consider joining us. Our superb colts programme is run by enthusiastic and passionate age group managers with coaching provided by senior players including the Overseas.

During the season Friday nights are our designated colts evenings. The BBQ will be on and the bar open for parents who want to enjoy a relaxing end to the week in a vibrant social setting.

We are recognised county and country-wide for growing and developing our senior players. Most of the players in our 1st XI originally joined us as colts. Our current captain, James Trower, joined us as an Under 8 and has led us to three successive promotions in the Surrey Championship, Surrey’s premier competition ladder for clubs. Beneath the 1st XI we are always on the look-out for reinforcements so don’t read this and think we’re being elitist and are only interested in 1st XI players. Cricket for everyone, league & social, at Stoke!

If you need any further information about becoming a member, please e-mail stokecc@hotmail.com and we will put you in touch with the appropriate age group, senior manager, social cricket contact or age group manager.

A warm welcome is guaranteed and we have playing and social members who support all of the Test playing nations so you can expect a banter-filled experience too!

We look forward to hearing from you!
