Messages of Congrats from Ian Wellman, Medders and Others

The Club has received this e-mail from Ian Wellman, (for those who don’t know he was our leading run scorer until a couple of years ago and his late father Derek founded our colts section):

“Just want to add my own personal congratulations to those from other former players of the Club who have all been, I am sure, again watching the Club’s progress again this season. Read more

1st XI stay in promotion places with draw at Chertsey

Saturday 4th July 2015
Surrey Championship Division 5
Chertsey 239 all out (53 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 131 for 7 (47 overs)
Winning Draw to Chertsey

Stoke’s 1st XI set themselves another 230+ target on a warm day in Chertsey, and whilst the chase started with good intentions, no-one really got a start and the sensible option to play for the draw towards the end was taken. Read more

Sunday XI lose at Thames Ditton

Sunday 3rd May 2015
Stoke D’Abernon 151 form 9 (40 overs)
Thames Ditton 152 for 7 (36 overs)
Thames Ditton won by 3 wickets

It would always be a matter of debate to make such a statement, but had we gone into ‘league mode’ it was probable we would have won this game comfortably. Instead, our Sunday ethos of making sure everyone is involved in the game was a small price to pay in the overall scheme of things as we played out a close game on a terror pitch that the home side’s League XI were bowled out for 41 on the previous day.

This year has shown some new faces at the top of the charts; three of last year’s trophy winners, (pictured), going on to other areas of our roll of honour; Nico and Baz heading the Sunday batting and bowling for the first time. Danny D popped in for a couple of games at the end of the season, registering the highest individual innings of the year against Twickenham in one of them. Medders Snr himself put in a match double in his only League appearance, but it was Ben Holder who returned the season’s best individual bowling analyses. Read more

Will Frost pushes for 1st XI recall as Academy defeat Horley

Surrey Trust League
Stoke D’Abernon 209 all out (40 overs)
Horley 171 all out (36.3 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 38 runs

Drew Patrick reports…

Stoke batted first on a slow wicket.

It was difficult to get the ball off the square and a total of 209 looked pretty competitive. Dan Douthwaite scored a brisk 46, Lian Meyer a cautious but necessary 30, (in the context of the game.) Jack Raimondo came in at No.8 with six overs to go and scored a rapid fire 26, ably supported by Hugo Solway with 18. Read more

Stoke’s Academy lost control of their own destiny after suffering a four wicket defeat at Worcester Park.

After being inserted, Stoke lost Dan Douthwaite and Tom Abraham early; but James Trower got the board moving with a run a ball 39. Read more
