Surrey Championship Division 5

Stoke D’Abernon 2nd XI 118 all out (49 overs)
Hampton Wick Royal, (9 points), beat Stoke D’Abernon, (0 points), by 6 runs
Traditionally Stoke and Hampton Wick have been very closely matched on the field and this game was no exception. In last year’s league opener Stoke chased down 242 with just 3 balls to spare, and despite fewer than half as many runs being scored, yesterday’s game was no less tense.
