Trinity Midwhitgiftians 2nd XI 154 all out (49 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 2nd XI won by 36 runs

A noon start for the 2nd XI and Stoke left it late but secured a win that, when the final points totals are tallied in September, could go down as one of the most significant of the year.

3s v Epsom Methodists June 2018

3rd XI Victorious. McMillan 70, Hafeez 57. 2s Lose.

Saturday 23rd June 2018
Friendly
Stoke D’Abernon 3rd XI 197 for 8 (40 overs)
Epsom Methodists 175 for 8 (40 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 3rd XI won by 22 runs

Good availability at the beginning of the week allowed us to accept the offer of an invitation to play the Epsom Methodists. EMCC are one of our traditional ‘Sunday XI’ opponents but a crammed fixture programme at the Rec meant this was one we had to miss this year…so it was great when they were able to host a Saturday game and enough of our ‘I’ll play either day’ candidates were able to attend.

The Over 40s squad’s unbeaten run stretching back to last July came to an end as Walton-on-Thames chased down the required total with 14 balls to spare and plenty of wickets in hand.

Toby Tarrant Award

My Greatest XI – Toby Tarrant

Another “My Greatest XI “ has dropped into the Club in-box, this one courtesy of Toby Tarrant who writes…

Here you go guys, I’m sat by the pool in Verona compiling this. The things I do for this Club…

Ian Hopton
“Hoppy” has to be one of the first names on the teamsheet. Mr.Reliable in many ways, I can’t think of a game where he hasn’t contributed with either the ball, the bat or in the field. I’ll put him at the top of the order because the rest of this line-up likes to have a slog and we need someone to at least try and stick around. Plus we need him to lead the warm up and roll the wicket.

Sunday XI v Cheam 10 June 2018

Sunday XI win at Cheam

Sunday 10th June 2018
Friendly
Stoke D’Abernon 226 for 7 (40 overs)
Cheam 154 all out (35.5 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 72 runs

Stoke’s Sunday XI recorded an impressive win at Cheam who were, as ever, welcoming hosts. There was the added bonus of the game being moved to Cheam’s main pitch after their scheduled Development Trust League game against Guildford was scratched by their opposition. Oddly one of their Development XI couldn’t be cajoled into this fixture so we faced a short-handed opposition for the second week running.

My Greatest XI – Adrian Mills

The latest Stoker to submit his Greatest XI is our newest member of the 500-club Adrian Mills. Selected by many others in their best ever sides, it’s time for Po to share his own selection with the world. Po writes…

I’ve had 16 seasons at Stoke, (so far), during which time I’ve played alongside hundreds of other players of varying abilities. Selecting the best will always be a matter of judgement so feel free to disagree with my selections – I know some of you will. I’ve decided for the purposes of this list that I have to have played at least 10 games with each player. That way I’ve been able to disregard anyone I’ve just played the odd one or two games with. Here goes…

Tough Day for the 2s

Saturday 26th May 2018
Travelbag Surrey Championship Division 3 – 2nd XI Competition
Chessington 2nd XI 252 for 4 (50 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 2nd XI 136 all out (39.5 overs)
Chessington 2nd XI won by 116 runs

Stoke and Chessington have enjoyed some good games over the last few years but a slight lack of depth due to exams and 1st XI call ups meant this one was a bit more one-sided.
