Defeat for Sunday XI but Youngsters Shine

Sunday 11th June 2017
Friendly
Stoke D’Abernon 148 for 9 (40 overs)
Epsom Methodists 149 for 5 (34.4 overs)
Epsom Methodists won by 5 wickets

An inspection of the scorecard makes this look like a routine ‘restrict & chase’ for the opposition, but it was far from that. Stoke can take a number of positives from this, notably the contributions from their younger players.

Stoke D’Abernon 197 for 5 (40 overs)

Sunday XI lose great game by 5 runs

Sunday 30th April 2017
Friendly
Merrow 160 all out (34.4 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 155 for 6 (40 overs)
Merrow won by 5 runs

In a tremendous advert for Sunday cricket Stoke renewed acquaintances with Merrow after the latter replied to our ad that we were only able to place after Moumer Khara and Doug Gilbertson found extra resources to complete a side, a prospect that looked unlikely following the Saturday selection needing resources.

SDCC 3s v Normandy Ali Curran

Opening Day Defeat

Saturday 15th April 2017
Friendly
Stoke D’Abernon 194 for 5 (40 overs)
London Tigers (Southall) CC 197 for 8 (33.2 overs)
London Tigers (Southall) CC won by 2 wickets

A mixed XI from Stoke’s playing resources kicked off the 2017 season and suffered defeat despite having control for long periods. Losing having taken six of the opposition’s wickets in the first 10.5 overs of the fielding effort is one of the more bizarre ways to lose a game, but credit to the opposition who stayed committed to their brand of cricket and hoped a couple of players would come off.

2s v Lingfield 2008 019

2nd XI Champions in 2008

With Pagie reminiscing about the 1st XI’s promotion day out at Sanderstead in 2008, (http://www.stokecc.co.uk/2017/02/04/my-greatest-xi-andy-page/), the same day the 2nd XI crushed Lingfield to secure the Championship of the 2nd XI competition. Five of Richie P’s greatest XI, (http://www.stokecc.co.uk/2016/12/11/stoke-dabernon-advent-calendar-2016-11/), were in the side that day, and a few were out with Logie last week. Here is the team…
