Will Thomson v Horsley Trust

Surrey Trust League
Stoke D’Abernon 241 for 8 (40 overs)
Horsley & Send 236 all out (39.2 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 5 runs

The 1st XI started the day knowing a win in this fixture and a victory by Churt over 3rd placed Hampton Wick Royal would guarantee promotion. Churt kept their side of the deal, but a bump in the road at Trinity means things move on to next week.
