Sunday Defeats (x2) but two Fixtures Fulfilled

Sunday 16th June 2019

Excellent availability after last weekend’s sheets came in led to us investigating a second Sunday fixture. As appears to be the norm the pool of 25 available fell back to 18 once the fixtures had been booked(!) but planning ahead for this we booked in Battersea Eagles for the game at Stoke knowing that if we did have any availability issues, our good friend Khalid Harris would probably be able to bring a spare or two – after a ring around of our own for extra resources we sent an XI to Thames Ditton, (although the curse continued as only ten showed!), and gave Stoke debuts to two loan signings at the Rec.

Stoke’s second string built on their victory from the previous week with a winning draw at Merstham.

1st XI Washed Out

Saturday 8th June 2019
AJ Fordham Surrey Championship
Oxted & Limpsfield 1st XI v Stoke D’Abernon 1st XI
Match Abandoned without a ball bowled

Frustration for Stoke and their good friends from Oxted as an already wet ground that was marginal at best on arrival due to the previous day’s rains suffered another pre-match deluge making any prospect of play impossibility.

There was play in all the other games in the division but not all results were positive meaning Stoke sit in mid-table ahead of next week’s home game against Dulwich who have the same number of points.
