6 wins in a row for Stoke 2s as Pagie leads us home

Surrey Championship Division 5

Cranleigh 2nd XI 205 for 9

Stoke D’Abernon 2nd XI 206 for 4

Stoke D’Abernon 2nd XI, (13 points), beat Cranleigh 2nd XI by 6 wickets

Whilst the day had started quite brightly (weather wise) it clouded over at lunchtime and as the day wore on we got slowly colder. Still, the conditions were good for swing bowling and having won the toss Matt asked Cranleigh to bat first. A great start for Stoke saw the visitors 12-2 early on. Crispy was fit to bowl again and got the ball moving early on, taking a wicket in his 3rd over. Shortly afterwards the dangerous Greaves tried to take a run off a misfield, only to see Ali Mac recover the ball and throw down the stumps from mid off.

Under 9s – Latest

Match reports from Duncan Stewart… 

Friday 11th June – Gladys Chitty match v Esher – Lost by 6 runs

Esher elected to field first, with Stoke reaching 247 in their 16 overs.  Olly top scored with ten with everyone else chipping in a few.  The outfield was large and slow making 4s difficult to come by, (only two scored in the whole match.)  On a positive note, Stoke only lost 3 wickets in their 16 overs compared to Esher’s five.  There’s still work to be done on running between the wickets. The bowling and fielding was much improved from the last game, with some strong bowling figures from Nicholas, Rory, Olly, and a great first over by Matthew. There was also some great keeping from Zach.
