Sunday Round Up – One Win, One Loss

Sunday 11th August 2019

The week started with excellent availability to source a second fixture. The traditional number of drop outs, including four on the Saturday, one at 10.30pm and another tried to bail on the Sunday morning but was turned around, made for a bit of a late scramble but 21 players helped make two games; each side posting a similar score but with a different result.

Sunday Round Up : Three matches!

Sunday 28th July 2019

Excellent availability, and most importantly received early in the week, allowed us to source two great fixtures…and in the end we played three matches! An early call could be made to secure a fixture at our friends from Sutton, and later in the week Thames Ditton binned off their original opposition when an advert for a game at the Rec was placed; technically a re-match but none of the Stoke XI that played at Giggs Hill Green a few weeks ago were in Duncan Elder’s side.

Home Friendly – Match 1
Thames Ditton 91 all out (18.2 overs)

Stoke D’Abernon 92 for 4 (13 overs) Read more





1st XI beaten by the Weather / 2nd XI beaten by Kingstonian

Saturday 27th July 2019
AJ Fordham Surrey Championship
Stoke D’Abernon v Chipstead Coulsdon & Walcountians
Match abandoned without a ball bowled

The Rec was unable to beat the overnight deluge and an early call was made to call off the 3rd v 1st contest between Stoke and Chipstead. The visitors retain a 39 point gap from Stoke; and at the time of going to press there was no news of results for 2nd placed Bank of England or others with an eye on the promotion places, notably Dorking and Dulwich.
