Stoke successfully defended a moderate total to record their first victory of the season.

They were separated when Raimondo, (23 from 26), was caught & bowled by first change Williams attempting to turn a low full toss into the mid-wicket area.

SDCC 3s v Normandy Ali Curran

Opening Day Defeat

Saturday 15th April 2017
Stoke D’Abernon 194 for 5 (40 overs)
London Tigers (Southall) CC 197 for 8 (33.2 overs)
London Tigers (Southall) CC won by 2 wickets

A mixed XI from Stoke’s playing resources kicked off the 2017 season and suffered defeat despite having control for long periods. Losing having taken six of the opposition’s wickets in the first 10.5 overs of the fielding effort is one of the more bizarre ways to lose a game, but credit to the opposition who stayed committed to their brand of cricket and hoped a couple of players would come off.

Saturday Washout

Saturday 10th September 2016
Stoke D’Abernon v Sheen Park
Match Abandoned – No Play

Frustration for Stoke and Sheen Park as efforts on the part of both clubs to raise teams came to nothing.

Prospects of play seemed bleak as persistent morning drizzle made for a miserable looking Stoke Rec as the home players arrived to set things up; but the pitch was dry under the cover so if the rain blew away there might have been some play.

Narrow Defeat for the 1st XI

Saturday 6th August 2016
Travelbag Surrey Championship – Division 5
Maori Oxshott 173 for 8 (50 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 171 all out (49.2 overs)
Maori Oxshott won by 2 runs

The craziest of Division 5s took another twist as Stoke, looking to win to keep their promotion hopes on course and effectively end Oxshott’s, failed to get over the line and in doing so introduced Oxshott themselves to the race for 2nd place, which still has no clear front-runner as the sides immediately above them all lost as well.

Stoke 1s at Churt 2016

Stalemate for the 1st XI at Churt

Saturday 30th July 2016
Travelbag Surrey Championship – Division 5
Churt 189 for 9 (55 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 144 for 7 (45 overs)
‘Winning Draw’ to Churt

The top two sides met at Churt’s picturesque ground, and whilst the match had enough quality to justify its top billing, it ended in a rather flat draw with the home side choosing to defend their position in the table, as anyone would have done, Stoke unable to mount the necessary charge to secure additional match and bonus points.
