Paul Negri Makes Contact with Stoke Again

Further to our last post, (http://www.stokecc.co.uk/2017/08/17/paul-negri-makes-contact-with-stoke/), Paul Negri has been touch again with a few comments and queries:

“Hi again! I was browsing the site and came upon a statistical curiosity you might include in the ‘carried bat’ section. In a match v Merstham in 1982 I faced the 2nd ball of the innings after we lost a wicket to the first ball, and then batted the whole innings for 40 not out as we were all out for 66! An achievement at least, and a high percentage of the total runs for a completed innings.” Read more

Tributes to Alan Wiseman flood in

We were very saddened to learn that Stoke legend Alan Wiseman, passed away at the weekend.

Within hours of the new breaking Stokers in the UK and around the world have sent in their tributes:

Chris Gudgeon : “Very sad to hear of his passing. I cherish great memories…his dogs often left to roam the Rec during games…his rather unreliable Volvo cars…his thespian skills with the Cobham Players…The Folk Club. But overall my abiding thoughts are of his huge love for the Cclub…all of us heard of his dismissals being delivered by future Test players…caused by giraffes but Alan was a great competitor. He also served the club as Chairman…and was always around…Committee meetings it is fair to say we’re amusingly chaotic…but full of good memories. Will miss you Alan…puff away on that pipe in the clubhouse in the sky.” Read more

Sunday XI defeat Magdalen

Sunday Friendly
Magdalen 184 all out (41.5 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 188 for 6 (34.4 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 4 wickets

Stoke’s Sunday XI returned to winning ways with a successful run chase against Magdalen.

The visitors chose to bat and made the worst possible start when Hogg fended the first ball of the match, a lifting delivery from Dan Douthwaite, to Michael Dolman behind the stumps. In the second over Ralph Coleman pinned Rowlands; so M.Connaghton and Whiteman had to dig in to the point that 22 runs were scored from the first nine overs. Read more
