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.

Saturday 7th August 2016
Stoke D’Abernon 2nd XI 199 for 5 (35 overs)
Esher 137 all out (30.3 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 2nd XI won by 62 runs

With Stoke’s 2s having a bye-week, Esher kindly sent a side to The Rec and a number of those looking to get into/stay in nick ahead of the final four League games got a useful work-out in a friendly.

Sunday (Away) Team lose at Chipstead

Sunday 5th June 2016
Away Friendly
Chipstead Coulsdon & Walcountians 256 for 5 declared (40 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 96 all out (32.5 overs)
Chipstead Coulsdon & Walcountians won by 160 runs

The absence of a match for the Saturday 2nd XI led to numbers being available for a second Sunday fixture, and Chipstead kindly agreed to host us. Whilst the result didn’t go to plan, an enjoyable day was had by all at an excellent venue with a phenomenal tea, and everyone had a chance to contribute to the match. Chipstead also provided an umpire, and had two scorers happy to keep a book for each club!

2nd Ten lose to Old Ruts

Saturday 30th April 2016
Friendly
Old Rutlishians 2nd XI 184 all out (45 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 2nd XI 89 all out (39.2 overs)
Old Rutlishians 2nd XI won by 95 runs

Stoke’s 2s still had more of a Sunday side look to it with a number of regulars unavailable or called up to the 1st XI, but they bowled the opposition out on a pitch where you needed to work hard for your wickets, an effort all the more commendable having fallen back to ten players after a plethora of team changes during the week.
