Today’s Sunday XI Friendly OFF

With a dire weather forecast, (local news coming in that it has started spitting in the Cobham area already), and some of the opposition having a c2 hour trip to the game; we have made an early decision to call off today’s match.

Thanks to those who made themselves available, to the ground staff and some of yesterday’s players to get as many covers on as possible to give it a chance, and to Jo for being at the ready for another mega tea.

Stoke made good starts in both innings but lost both middle over sections, largely due to the opposition captain who grabbed the game by the scruff of the neck to boost his own side’s survival chances, and an eleven game unbeaten run came to an end.
