2nd XI beat Esher

Saturday 7th August 2016
Stoke D’Abernon 2nd XI 199 for 5 (35 overs)
Esher 137 all out (30.3 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 2nd XI won by 62 runs

With Stoke’s 2s having a bye-week, Esher kindly sent a side to The Rec and a number of those looking to get into/stay in nick ahead of the final four League games got a useful work-out in a friendly. Read more

2nd XI come up just short of Chertsey total

Saturday 21st May 2016
Travelbag Surrey Championship – Division 4 – 2nd XI Competition
Chertsey 2nd XI 245 for 8 (50 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 2nd XI 234 for 7 (50 overs)
Chertsey 2nd XI won by 11 runs

Thankfully there was no Peter Moores-esque data available to analyse after this one or we would all have gone crazy, but Stoke were left scratching their heads as this one got away. Perhaps the concession of a few too many in the field and a few missed run-scoring opportunities after tea proved decisive; nevertheless a patched up side savaged by 1st XI call-ups, the lack of a sixth bowler and a midweek injury to one of our starlets, put in a tremendous effort and nearly pulled off a great win in a great game on a good pitch.

Bank of England 159 for 9 (40 overs)

2nd XI lose to Chessington

Saturday 27th June 2015
Surrey Championship Division 4 – 2nd XI Competition
Stoke D’Abernon 2nd XI 116 all out (51.4 overs)
Chessington 2nd XI 117 for 1 (26.5 overs)
Chessington 2nd XI Won by 9 wickets

Stoke’s patched-up 2nd XI ran into a well-drilled, promotion challenging Chessington outfit with inevitable consequences. Once again the Team Secretary had a world of adventures in the week helping to put an XI together, and a big vote of thanks to those who made themselves available and in some cases altered plans as holidays, school sports days and Glastonbury(!) savaged the pool of available regular players.
