Stoke D’Abernon Advent Calendar 2016 (15)

Pre-season we sent an e-mail to a pair of our most supportive parents, Hayley Townsend and the director of Surrey County Cricket Club’s Academy, Gareth, asking if they felt their Ben would be fine to start playing longer-format adult cricket for us. Parental permission secured, Ben chipped in with 15 wickets in all formats, (and displayed some incredible fielding too), to finish with these impressive numbers:

Alleyn 2nd XI 159 for 9 (50 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 2nd XI 109 for 6 (25 overs)

Surrey Trust League
Worcester Park 202 for 7 (40 overs)

Academy Tea at Old Ruts

Trust League defeat at Old Ruts

Sunday 7th August 2016
Surrey Trust League
Old Rutlishians 280 for 8 (40 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 158 for 9 (40 overs)
Old Rutlishians won by 122 runs

Match Report by Will Thomson…

Our penultimate Trust League fixture of the season saw a youthful Stoke side run into a well-drilled, more experienced Old Ruts side. Whilst the 122 run loss did show that Stoke still have work to do to compete with some of the bigger clubs, we perhaps deserved more having toiled in the field on a hot day after been asked to bowl first.

Under 19s show Learning and Progress

Nat West Under 19 T20 Blast
Maori Oxshott Tikis 115 all out (18.4 overs)
Stoke Slayers 119 for 2 (17 overs)
Stoke Slayers won by 8 wickets

Stoke’s stop-start Under 19 T20 Blast campaign finally got going again, and their points total and net-run-rate received a nice shot in the arm with an efficient win at Oxshott; untidy in places, notably the extras conceded count, but overall whole a very good night’s work.
