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.

Stoke D’Abernon Advent Calendar 2016 (16)

Sixteen different players appeared in what turned out to be a reduced Under 19 T20 Blast programme in 2016, availability savaged by injuries and holiday commitments. Nevertheless when the squad took the field they showed growth and learning that they took into their weekend longer format cricket.

SDCC 3s v Normandy Ali Curran

2nd XI win at Alleyn to finish 4th

Saturday 3rd September 2016
Travelbag Surrey Championship – Division 4 2nd XI Competition
Alleyn 2nd XI 159 for 9 (50 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 2nd XI 109 for 6 (25 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 2nd XI won on Faster Scoring Rate

The fixture computer had a laugh at our expense, sending us to the furthest away ground for a 12 noon start, but on arrival the clubs played out three-quarters of a game to finish the League season; Stoke eventually winning on run-rate in a match that had similar duration to the 1st XI match.

Surrey Trust League
Worcester Park 202 for 7 (40 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 206 for 8 (39.5 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 2 wickets

The cliché ‘you had to be there’ is often over-used but not in this case; and for those who were, this will be very much one of those ‘I was there’ games when talked about in years to come.

Under 19s show Learning and Progress

Friday 29th July 2016
Nat West Under 19 T20 Blast
Maori Oxshott Tikis 115 all out (18.4 overs)
Stoke Slayers 119 for 2 (17 overs)
Stoke Slayers won by 8 wickets

Stoke’s stop-start Under 19 T20 Blast campaign finally got going again, and their points total and net-run-rate received a nice shot in the arm with an efficient win at Oxshott; untidy in places, notably the extras conceded count, but overall whole a very good night’s work.

Stoke weaken their Academy side but still win big

Sunday 24th July 2016
Surrey Trust League Surrey – Zone 2
Stoke D’Abernon 275 for 7 (40 overs)
Epsom 107 all out (23.5 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 178 runs

Firstly some more kudos for Stoke – and Epsom – for going ahead with this game. Epsom contacted us to say they were a little weak but Stoke agreed to manage the game accordingly and sat down a couple of 1st XI players from their original line-up.

Sutton U17 v Stoke T20 - July 2016 1

Excellent T20 Evening at Sutton

Tuesday 19th July 2016
T20 Friendly
Sutton U17 147 for 8 (20 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 138 for 9 (20 Overs)
Sutton Under 17s won by 9 runs

Great relations between Stoke and Sutton were further enhanced as both Clubs got a game on despite Stoke not having enough Under 17s, (due to holidays), to play the original cup tie. The Stokers originally selected, (many well under the age of 17), were supplemented by some senior assistance from Rod, Ralphie and Charlie Thomas.

Tarrant Hat-Trick but Stoke positivity goes unrewarded

Saturday 16th July 2016
Travelbag Surrey Championship – Division 5
Stoke D’Abernon 260 for 7 declared (49.5 overs)
Old Emanuel 263 for 6 (42.2 overs)
Old Emanuel won by 4 wickets

Stoke didn’t do a lot wrong in this one but there was a lot of head-scratching after a solid batting performance and a positive declaration went unrewarded. Some days you just have to say well played to the opposition.
