Under 17s brought back to earth by Walton-on-Thames

Tim Dyer writes…

Oh dear, the wheels fell off in fairly spectacular fashion!

From the highs of Weybridge to the lows of Walton, nothing went right from the toss onwards.

A warm, humid, slightly overcast morning at SDCC, with the vague possibility of rain later on. The wicket was quite green and looked like it would assist the bowlers, especially with the new ball. Win the toss, field and chase a total was the right call.

Valiant Ladies lose to Blackheath

From Stoke’s perspective, Sunday’s match represented in equal measure the frustration and the joy of league cricket, rolled into the ‘wacky’ package of a potential table-topping clash between Blackheath and SDCC.

The availability of Stoke’s players for this important match was ravaged by the combination of county cricket and A level revison. For inexplicable reasons, Surrey CCC decided to book matches for every girl’s age group in the county and, in so doing, decimated the squads of the stronger clubs, including Stoke.

Stoke 2s record 4th consecutive win

Matt won the toss and elected to bat on a warm and muggy day. Ali Mac and Steve saw us off to a solid start and the run rate was good at 4.5 per over. Steve in particular was punishing anything with width and hit 9 boundaries on his way to 41. Having seen the opening bowlers off, the change bowlers started to slow the run rate. Steve had looked certain to record a half century, but came down the track to Nasir and found himself stumped for 41.

Weekend Round Up

Match Reports for the Surrey Championship matches appear elsewhere on this site, (as does Tim Dyer’s account of the Under 17s Cup win),  but the club has enjoyed success at other levels over the weekend…

Under 9s

Johnny Lawes writes : “…In the Horsley & Send Under 9 Tournament played on Monday 31st May the boys did fantastically well in winning the plate final, (beating the winners of the main competition, Teddington, in the group stages.) They played 5 games throughout the day and I can’t name a man of the tournament as they all played well and each contributing with bat and ball. It was a long day but great fun and boys were a credit to the club.”
