Friendly
Wisley Southside 139 for 6 (40 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 140 for 7 (36.1 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 3 wickets

Stoke’s Sunday XI completed a clean sweep of senior cricket victories at the weekend with a successful run chase at The Rec.

Friendly
Stoke D’Abernon 197 for 5 (40 overs)
Badgers 185 all out (38.3 overs)

A fixture that was in jeopardy on Friday due to late drop outs, including the author of this report, was fulfilled due to some much appreciated assistance from those who played in the League the previous day, and a highly entertaining game was played out where all results were possible going into the closing overs.

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…
