After an opposition cry-off last week, Stoke D’Abernon’s 1st XI finally kicked off their 2010 season, and secured an eleven run victory at the Rec in a 40 over encounter over Ashtead’s 2nd XI that was played in a great spirit.
New Stoke skipper Siddhartha Lahiri won his first toss, and gave his openers Brian Berthoud and Will Patrick first use of the newly laid square. Steady progress was made against opening bowlers Morris and Neil-Hall, Morris’s first five overs yielding just four runs; but the breakthrough came in the 7th over when Patrick turned for a second run only to find Berthoud having settled for a single and was lost to a run out for just 5.

Stoke’s sunday XI kicked off their season with a familiar away tie at Newdigate on Sunday 18th April. Having lost the toss Stoke were put into the field on a very sunny afternoon.
The two openers, Tom Frost and Alex Bond, both bowled well with figures of 6-2-12-1 and 6-1-18-2 respectively. First change pair of Andy Page (5-0-27-0) and John Crisp (6-2-25-0) continued to keep the run rate down and after 23 overs Newdigate were 82-3. Matt Gottschalk (10-1-35-4) and Jack Raimondo (7-1-36-1) continued the good bowling, helped by a solid fielding performance from all involved. Newdigate finally declared on 213-8 after Adam Cooke (3-0-27-0) and James Trower (4-0-25-0) finished off the 47 overs bowled by Stoke. Read more
