Trust League Defeat to Dulwich / Under 19 T20 News

Sunday 13th August 2017
Surrey Trust League
Stoke D’Abernon 186 all out (36.4 overs)
Dulwich 189 for 3 (37.2 overs)
Dulwich won by 7 wickets

Stoke went into their final zonal match unable to qualify for either of the semi-final competitions, but they had a direct influence on the final positions in the table as a win over leaders Dulwich would have opened the door for the winners of the Ashtead v Wimbledon match to top the group. (Wimbledon actually conceded that match!)

Reigate Priory v Stoke July 2017

Learning Experience for Weak Academy XI

Sunday 9th July 2017
Surrey Trust League
Stoke D’Abernon 125 all out (36.3 overs)
Reigate Priory 126 for 1 (21.3 overs)
Reigate Priory won by 9 wickets

It would be an understatement to say that this weekend’s selection and finalising teams was like herding cats, (great book of the same name for those who may care to read it, by the way), and Stoke’s Academy bore the brunt yesterday, running into a different herd, one of llamas in Reigate, and did their best with limited resources.

Ollie John 99 not out v Old Whitgiftians

Ollie John 99 Not Out in Trust League Defeat

Sunday 2nd July 2017
Surrey Trust League
Stoke D’Abernon 211 for 4 (40 overs)
Old Whitgiftians 212 for 4 (35.5 overs)
Old Whitgiftians won by 6 wickets

Without players’ scores displayed on the board and the scorers tucked safely away in the shade of the Clubhouse, Ollie John was unaware that a six off the final ball of Stoke’s innings would have brought him a first century in any form of cricket. He swatted it over cow for four to finish unbeaten on 99 to help post a total of 211 for 4 in 40 overs after Will Thomson won the toss and elected to bat on a warm afternoon.

Trust League Defeat at Ashtead

Sunday 28th May 2017
Surrey Trust League
Stoke D’Abernon 122 all out (30 overs)
Ashtead 65 for 4 (12.5 overs) – revised target of 62 in 20 overs
Ashtead won by 6 wickets

The rain rule heavily favours the side batting second in Trust League cricket, but a bowler-heavy Academy side were masters of their own downfall and it would be wrong to use this as an excuse as they opened their 2017 campaign with a defeat at Ashtead.

Will Thomson and Charlie Hill v Worcester Park - August 2016

Incredible Trust League Victory over Worcester Park

Surrey Trust League
Worcester Park 202 for 7 (40 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 206 for 8 (39.5 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 2 wickets

The cliché ‘you had to be there’ is often over-used but not in this case; and for those who were, this will be very much one of those ‘I was there’ games when talked about in years to come.

Academy Tea at Old Ruts

Trust League defeat at Old Ruts

Sunday 7th August 2016
Surrey Trust League
Old Rutlishians 280 for 8 (40 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 158 for 9 (40 overs)
Old Rutlishians won by 122 runs

Match Report by Will Thomson…

Our penultimate Trust League fixture of the season saw a youthful Stoke side run into a well-drilled, more experienced Old Ruts side. Whilst the 122 run loss did show that Stoke still have work to do to compete with some of the bigger clubs, we perhaps deserved more having toiled in the field on a hot day after been asked to bowl first.

Stoke Slayers 153 for 7 (20 overs)

Under 19s show Learning and Progress

Friday 29th July 2016
Nat West Under 19 T20 Blast
Maori Oxshott Tikis 115 all out (18.4 overs)
Stoke Slayers 119 for 2 (17 overs)
Stoke Slayers won by 8 wickets

Stoke’s stop-start Under 19 T20 Blast campaign finally got going again, and their points total and net-run-rate received a nice shot in the arm with an efficient win at Oxshott; untidy in places, notably the extras conceded count, but overall whole a very good night’s work.
