Record Partnerships

Where we have a scorebook or result sheet, the result has been loaded on to our Play Cricket site, but Play Cricket does not have a facility to calculate record partnerships.

So we’ve gone through the books, worked them out and put them in to eighteen sections. Stoke have been involved in a number of different leagues over the years and the partnerships are split by league here as well as by team, (1st, 2nd XI, Women, T20 etc)

The majority of the 1st XI records are from our time in the Fuller’s League, but the 2nd XI records are currently split evenly between the Fuller’s League and Surrey Championship eras. Conveniently both XIs were promoted to the Surrey Championship at the end of the 2008 season.

The three highest Stoke partnerships of all time are both from our ladies team during the successful season in 2009, and half of our T20 records are from our run to the final of the Surrey Championship T20 competition also in 2009.

Amongst the oldest records still standing are some of the partnership records in friendly games, with the longest standing of all being the club record for the 8th wicket, which has stood since June 1952 – that’s over 60 years at the time of writing.

The players’ scores are what they made in the match, not necessarily their respective contributions to each partnership.
