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.

Enjoyable day despite defeat for the Sunday XI

Sunday 1st July 2018
Friendly
Old Ashfordians 229 for 4 (40 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 200 for 7 (40 overs)

Sunday XI v Cheam 10 June 2018

Sunday XI win at Cheam

Sunday 10th June 2018
Friendly
Stoke D’Abernon 226 for 7 (40 overs)
Cheam 154 all out (35.5 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 72 runs

Stoke’s Sunday XI recorded an impressive win at Cheam who were, as ever, welcoming hosts. There was the added bonus of the game being moved to Cheam’s main pitch after their scheduled Development Trust League game against Guildford was scratched by their opposition. Oddly one of their Development XI couldn’t be cajoled into this fixture so we faced a short-handed opposition for the second week running.

Neil Foster v WVCC June 2018

Sunday XI Nearly Achieve Improbable Win

Sunday 3rd June 2018
Friendly
Whiteley Village 187 all out (37 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 183 for 9 (40 overs)
Whiteley Village won by 4 runs

Thanks to Whiteley Village for offering this fixture and then playing it in the way that they did. Poor responses to requests for availability meant we were only able to advertise for a fixture late in the week and by then there were no appropriate home matches were on the boards. The most attractive one left was this local away match, the slight reservation being that it was against an opposition who had set themselves up to play a League game and had Walton-on-Thames 1s players – including their Overseas – who had lost their Sunday league opposition, and we all know what happened at Byfleet last year when we stepped in in similar circumstances. Chat ahead of the match and at the toss about relative strengths led to the Stoke XI fielding first.

Friendly
Richmond Nomads 117 all out (28 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 120 for 0 (21.3 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 10 wickets

Stoke made very short work of a Richmond Nomads side who made a curious decision to choose to bat despite midweek discussions about relative strengths and the result of last year’s emergency fixture.

Friendly
Ham & Petersham 146 for 9 (40 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 148 for 4 (29.5 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 6 wickets

A new look Sunday XI including a number of exciting prospects from our Academy scored a good win in a match that wasn’t arranged until Saturday morning, then was under threat due to the previous day’s rains. The ground pulled up OK, Hoppy & Shawn reporting early to work on a wet patch to ensure the start was only slightly delayed.

Sunday XI v Battersea Eagles 2018

Sunday 6th May 2018
Friendly
Battersea Eagles 168 for 7 (40 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 125 all out (34.3 overs)
Battersea Eagles won by 43 runs

The Sunday XI opened their season with a defeat but the sensible decision to ensure everyone got overs & fielding into their legs and the batsmen time in the middle at the expense of the result was the right one.
