Over 40s v Weybridge June 2018

Overs 40s beat Leatherhead

Thursday 19th July 2018
Friendly
Stoke D’Abernon Over 40s 176 for 3 (20 overs)
Leatherhead Over 40s 96 for 6 (20 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon Over 40s won by 80 runs

Leatherhead were the latest to put together an Over 40s side as this highly successful initiative started by Stoke and Weybridge a couple of years ago continues to grow. Don’t read the scorecard as a one-sided affair. Everyone was involved and Stoke ran out winners against a newly formed team who, with games, will reduce the targets they will have to chase and put more on their own total.

Kelso and Dennis

Sunday Nine beat the Chelsea Nomads

Sunday 15th July 2018
Friendly
Chelsea Nomads 191 for 9 (40 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 192 for 3 (33.4 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 7 wickets

With World Cup fever apparently over on Wednesday night, this long-standing fixture was confirmed the following evening with the opposition saying “we have ten – should be able to get an 11th” and Stoke having 14 to pick from. A few of the 14 switched to Saturday to make the 3rd XI match happen, leaving us with 10+TBC – even if TBC wasn’t around, still a good ten. Sadly TBC wasn’t available, no worries there…but then two pulled out with bad backs – one first thing, another an hour before the start – resulting in an SOS. Roddy Kelso answered the call, so having lost a toss committing us to a fielding stint and no chance to sign up any others we made do with nine…and what a performance on another hot day.
