2nd XI lose to Leatherhead

Stoke DAbernon 2nd XI 208-8 (40 overs)

Leatherhead 2nd XI 212-2 (37.4 overs)

The 2nd XI suffered a disappointing loss to their Leatherhead counterparts this afternoon on one of the warmest April days we’ve seen for many years.

Having won the toss Crispy decided to make first use of a good looking track, but we were pegged back early on when Peter and JT, (who once again played some attractive strokes), were both out early on.

Sunday XI tie with Newdigate

Newdigate CC v Stoke D’Abernon – Sunday 17 April 2011 

The first Sunday match of the season produced a very entertaining tie at Newdigate, in which both teams were on top for periods, but neither could finish the opposition off.

Having arrived with only 10 men available this early in the year, we were fortunate to discover that the home side had 12. We were given spin bowler Matt Dilger for the day. Malcolm won the toss and decided to bat first, with the weather expected to cloud over as the day went on.

Pre-Season Working Party – Saturday 2nd April

Dear All,

Our first matches of the season are scheduled for April 16th and 17th, so I am writing to ask for volunteers to help with the usual pre-season preparations. We need to clean and repair the sightscreens, put the netting on the frames for the astro and mobile nets, clean the garage out etc. This will only take a few hours if we have sufficient volunteers, so please try and give some of your time to help us get the jobs done.
