Sunday 13th August 2017
Surrey Trust League
Stoke D’Abernon 186 all out (36.4 overs)
Dulwich 189 for 3 (37.2 overs)
Dulwich won by 7 wickets

Stoke went into their final zonal match unable to qualify for either of the semi-final competitions, but they had a direct influence on the final positions in the table as a win over leaders Dulwich would have opened the door for the winners of the Ashtead v Wimbledon match to top the group. (Wimbledon actually conceded that match!)

Surrey Trust League
Stoke D’Abernon 125 all out (36.3 overs)
Reigate Priory 126 for 1 (21.3 overs)
Reigate Priory won by 9 wickets

It would be an understatement to say that this weekend’s selection and finalising teams was like herding cats, (great book of the same name for those who may care to read it, by the way), and Stoke’s Academy bore the brunt yesterday, running into a different herd, one of llamas in Reigate, and did their best with limited resources.

Ollie John 99 not out v Old Whitgiftians

Ollie John 99 Not Out in Trust League Defeat

Sunday 2nd July 2017
Surrey Trust League
Stoke D’Abernon 211 for 4 (40 overs)
Old Whitgiftians 212 for 4 (35.5 overs)
Old Whitgiftians won by 6 wickets

Without players’ scores displayed on the board and the scorers tucked safely away in the shade of the Clubhouse, Ollie John was unaware that a six off the final ball of Stoke’s innings would have brought him a first century in any form of cricket. He swatted it over cow for four to finish unbeaten on 99 to help post a total of 211 for 4 in 40 overs after Will Thomson won the toss and elected to bat on a warm afternoon.
