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.

Worcester Park 202 for 7 (40 overs)

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.

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.

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.

Stoke weaken their Academy side but still win big

Sunday 24th July 2016
Surrey Trust League Surrey – Zone 2
Stoke D’Abernon 275 for 7 (40 overs)
Epsom 107 all out (23.5 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 178 runs

Firstly some more kudos for Stoke – and Epsom – for going ahead with this game. Epsom contacted us to say they were a little weak but Stoke agreed to manage the game accordingly and sat down a couple of 1st XI players from their original line-up.

Chessington Blue Caps 109 for 5 (19 overs)
Chessington Blue Caps won by 5 wickets

A new season of Under 19 T20 Blast Cricket began at The Rec, but the Stoke Slayers showed some old failings and fell to a narrow, albeit comfortable defeat to Chessington; a shortage of runs and not batting the overs – again! – proving crucial.

Narrow Trust League Win for the Academy

Sunday 19th June 2016
Surrey Trust League
Stoke D’Abernon 213 all out (32.4 overs)
Godalming 209 all out (39.5 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 4 runs

Stoke’s Academy nearly paid the penalty for not using 7.2 of their allotted 40 overs at Godalming, but did enough to maintain their 100% record in the competition with a narrow win.

Stoke Academy v Malden Wanderers - May 2016

Academy start Trust League Campaign with Big Win

Sunday 29th May 2016
Surrey Trust League
Malden Wanderers 143 all out (38.3 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 146 for 1 (26.2 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 9 wickets

“We got schooled” was the verdict of the Malden Wanderers coach as Stoke’s Academy commenced their 2016 Surrey Trust League campaign with a commanding performance at the Rec. The visitors were only able to fulfil the fixture after their Under 15s match was cancelled, and their young side ran into a well-drilled Stoke unit that was a little older and stronger all round.

Hoppy Hundred as Academy finish on a high

Sunday 16th August 2015
Surrey Trust League
Stoke D’Abernon 278 for 7 (40 overs)
Dulwich 187 for 8 (40 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 91 runs

A dead rubber as regards qualification for either side, but players still had records to put on the line, (and for Stoke the wooden spoon to avoid), and they put on a good show at the Rec.
