Sunday 20th May 2018
Friendly
Richmond Nomads 117 all out (28 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 120 for 0 (21.3 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 10 wickets

Stoke made very short work of a Richmond Nomads side who made a curious decision to choose to bat despite midweek discussions about relative strengths and the result of last year’s emergency fixture.

Sunday XI v Battersea Eagles 2018

Sunday XI beaten by the Battersea Eagles

Sunday 6th May 2018
Friendly
Battersea Eagles 168 for 7 (40 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 125 all out (34.3 overs)
Battersea Eagles won by 43 runs

The Sunday XI opened their season with a defeat but the sensible decision to ensure everyone got overs & fielding into their legs and the batsmen time in the middle at the expense of the result was the right one.

The first three show Richie looking to go past Michael Holding’s count of 249 wickets. He equalled Mikey’s count with an early one but a few near misses meant the day ended in a tie. The tale of the tape is now as follows:

Sunday XI Complete Bank Job

Sunday 13th August 2017
Friendly
Bank of England 158 all out (39 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 159 for 8 (30.2 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 2 wickets

By Thursday morning this match looked highly unlikely as a succession of injuries, other withdrawals and an alarming absence of regulars left us with just four players and a reluctant fifth. Our thanks to Bank of England CC for giving us enough time to have another ring-around – miraculously an XI was completed and we kept one of our best Sunday fixtures alive.

Sunday XI v Concorde 18 06 2017

Sunday XI One Wicket Away

Sunday 18th June 2017
Friendly
Stoke D’Abernon 236 for 5 declared (43 overs)
Concorde 179 for 9 (40 overs)
Match Drawn

The hottest day of the year saw Stoke and Concorde play out a draw at Sendholme.

Batting first, Doug Gilbertson was originally listed at No.3 but faced the first ball of the match as the person originally selected for the role was sat on the roller at Stoke with less than 20 minutes to the start. After a quiet opening maiden, it was anything but at the start of the second over as debutant Ishan Mulchandani drilled the first two balls he faced through the covers and mid-off, then pulled the third along the ground through mid-wicket – not a bad way to start your Stoke career – and he hit another four before the over was out.

Phipps and Connell 1

Sunday XI beat Wisley

Sunday 21st May 2017
Friendly
Wisley Southside 139 for 6 (40 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 140 for 7 (36.1 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 3 wickets

Stoke’s Sunday XI completed a clean sweep of senior cricket victories at the weekend with a successful run chase at The Rec. Lots of familiar faces in the visitors’ line-up when they arrived, but they advertised themselves as “stronger than usual” and hustled Rod Thomson into giving them first use of the strip.

In contrast to the previous day, the Stoke Rec was bathed in sunshine as Stoke opened early for business with the visit of the Surrey Championship Grounds & Facilities Committee to, (hopefully), ratify the 1st XI’s promotion to Division 4.

A second successive 100% weekend at all levels for the Club as the Sunday XI made relatively short work of a Maori Oxshott side that contained a few veterans and a sprinkling of colts.
