Friendly
Stoke D’Abernon 148 for 9 (40 overs)
Epsom Methodists 149 for 5 (34.4 overs)

Logie’s Birthday Missions : 29 completed, 41 to Go

Yesterday evening saw Logie complete his 29th catch-up mission, (of 70 in his calendar so far), for his 70th birthday.

For those who don’t know Logie, he was Stoke’s 1s skipper in 1997 and 1998, (he also captained the 2s for part of 1995, all of 1996 and all of 2000), and assembled a squad of Stokers to help celebrate his birthday, (not until April!), at The Plough over the road from the Club yesterday evening.

Sunday XI win well

Sunday 22nd May 2016
Friendly
Battersea Eagles 144 all out (32 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 145 for 3 (27.4 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 7 wickets

Stoke’s Sunday XI recorded a comfortable win against a replacement opposition after The Vultures e-mailed to say they were unable to fulfil the fixture. Battersea Eagles, (a hitherto unknown quantity other than a few of them used to play League cricket at Sinjungrammarians), were the opposition of choice from the replies to the advert for a fixture, and the choice was a good one as they had similar views on the ethos of Sunday cricket to ours.
