Chaotic day for the Sunday XI ends with a Win

Sunday 4th June 2017
Friendly
Stoke D’Abernon 101 all out (33.4 overs)
Richmond Nomads 69 all out (26.3 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 32 runs

Another mad day in the life of the Stoke Sunday side but it all worked out in the end!

A sunny day, all the Stokers present and correct, clock ticking towards the point where the opposition should be starting to appear…but no sign of them. A speculative call to them to see how they were getting on was met with a rather surprised voice at the other end suggesting that the fixture was next Sunday. Cue panic with the tea lady now on site too!

Stoke D'Abernon v Old Paulines Cricket.

T20 Cup Victory at Camberley

Tuesday 16th May 2017
Surrey Championship T20 – Round 1
Camberley 107 all out (19.2 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 111 for 3 (14.4 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 7 wickets

Stoke progressed to the next round of the Surrey Championship T20 with a superb all-round team performance where every player left something positive on the scorecard. By their own admission at the toss the home side “scraped” a team together, but Stoke faced the same challenge, plus the lengthy round trip that included a closed M3 on the way home.

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

A mixed XI from Stoke’s playing resources kicked off the 2017 season and suffered defeat despite having control for long periods. Losing having taken six of the opposition’s wickets in the first 10.5 overs of the fielding effort is one of the more bizarre ways to lose a game, but credit to the opposition who stayed committed to their brand of cricket and hoped a couple of players would come off.
