Stoke 1s v Battersea Ironsides April 2017

Stoke beat Battersea Ironsides

Saturday 22nd April 2017
Friendly
Stoke D’Abernon 152 all out (37 overs)
Battersea Ironsides 116 all out (36.2 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 36 runs

Stoke successfully defended a moderate total to record their first victory of the season.

Batting first having won the toss, there was an early wicket when Alistair McMillan edged B.Grindell to the keeper; but Jack Raimondo and James Trower added 57 runs in 8.3 overs to get the board moving. They were separated when Raimondo, (23 from 26), was caught & bowled by first change Williams attempting to turn a low full toss into the mid-wicket area.

SDCC 3s v Normandy Ali Curran

Opening Day Defeat

Saturday 15th April 2017
Friendly
Stoke D’Abernon 194 for 5 (40 overs)
London Tigers (Southall) CC 197 for 8 (33.2 overs)
London Tigers (Southall) CC won by 2 wickets
