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.

Mixed 1s/2s Stoke XI lose to Old Ruts 1s

Saturday 29th April 2017
Friendly
Old Rutlishians 243 for 6 (45 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 105 all out (36.2 overs)
Old Rutlishians won by 138 runs

Stoke’s 1st XI suffered a few availability issues ahead of their final pre-season friendly before the League begins and the result was reflective of this; nevertheless the bowlers got overs under their belts, the fielders acclimatised themselves to time on the pitch and, (two or three of), the batsmen got middle time.

Ralphie v Old As 2016

50 Hundreds by Stokers – Part 5

So we reach the final part of the series. Here is Ralphie’s Top Ten…

OK, here we go…but before you read on, a bit of background as to why I chose these. When initially sorting the pieces of paper on the lounge floor, (seems ages ago, now), I kept coming back to these more than any, as they were brilliant hundreds in both their execution and importance to the match situation. All bar two had a direct influence on a positive result, (I had also been at the non-striker’s end for a short period of two of them so I am claiming an assist!); and where the hundreds were match-winning efforts they were clearly more memorable, and part of some crazy games to win given the events of the day; in some cases we met an opposition who were not as spirited as us and that made the win even more satisfying.

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.

50 Hundreds by Stokers – Part 4

The penultimate part of this series sees us enter the top 20…

Tim Handel : 129 v Ewhurst (A) on 07/07/2007 – 1st XI – Fuller’s League
Scorecard : http://sdacc.play-cricket.com/website/results/891497
We had been waiting for this. In his first season with us, Tim had threatened a ton on a few occasions without converting, but this was the day it happened. Decent attack but a small playing area, and in early after we lost Gav in the first over. Sid & Tim traded boundary after boundary in a Club record Fuller’s 2nd wicket partnership, (http://www.stokecc.co.uk/record-partnerships/) – Sid eventually holed out, (probably with his bowling duties in mind), but Tim went on and on. We were contemplating 300 but Simon pitched a six on the road that bounced several times on the tarmac and took about ten minutes to fetch. Not wanting to lose time or overs, we ‘suggested’ to Pagie that we declared and we won the game to stay in promotion contention.
