Saturday 15th September 2018
Friendly
Ashford 214 all out (38.3 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 205 for 8 (40 overs)
Ashford won by 9 runs

A great all-round individual performance from Will Thomson that included a maiden century wasn’t quite enough to score a win at Ashford who kindly offered us the fixture in the week after their original opposition never confirmed the fixture.

The 100

Over 40s beat Leatherhead in Inaugural 100 ball match

Wednesday 29th August 2018
Friendly
Leatherhead Over 40s 77 for 8 (100 balls)
Stoke D’Abernon Over 40s 78 for 2 (70 balls)
Stoke D’Abernon Over 40s won by 8 wickets

The ECB may be trialling the 100 ball game soon, (http://www.espncricinfo.com/story/_/id/24461064/pca-confirms-involvement-trials-ecb-100-ball-competition), but Stoke’s and Leatherhead’s Over 40s got in first and played out a highly sociable game despite the time of year suggesting miners’ helmets might be needed. To avoid this prospect the sides were creative by bowling the first 48 balls from one end, then the remainder – including the ten ball final over – from the other.

Over 40s v Weybridge June 2018

Overs 40s beat Leatherhead

Thursday 19th July 2018
Friendly
Stoke D’Abernon Over 40s 176 for 3 (20 overs)
Leatherhead Over 40s 96 for 6 (20 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon Over 40s won by 80 runs

Leatherhead were the latest to put together an Over 40s side as this highly successful initiative started by Stoke and Weybridge a couple of years ago continues to grow. Don’t read the scorecard as a one-sided affair. Everyone was involved and Stoke ran out winners against a newly formed team who, with games, will reduce the targets they will have to chase and put more on their own total.

3s v Epsom Methodists June 2018

3rd XI Victorious. McMillan 70, Hafeez 57. 2s Lose.

Saturday 23rd June 2018
Friendly
Stoke D’Abernon 3rd XI 197 for 8 (40 overs)
Epsom Methodists 175 for 8 (40 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 3rd XI won by 22 runs

Good availability at the beginning of the week allowed us to accept the offer of an invitation to play the Epsom Methodists. EMCC are one of our traditional ‘Sunday XI’ opponents but a crammed fixture programme at the Rec meant this was one we had to miss this year…so it was great when they were able to host a Saturday game and enough of our ‘I’ll play either day’ candidates were able to attend.

Over 40s v Weybridge June 2018

Over 40s beat Weybridge on Last Ball with 27 off the Final Over

Thursday 14th June 2018
Friendly
Weybridge Over 40s 176 for 6 (20 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon Over 40s 180 for 4 (20 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon Over 40s won by 6 wickets

What is it about T20 matches at Stoke this year? With the boffins at CricInfo looking into our seemingly unique Surrey Championship T20 win against Horsley & Send in May, (http://www.stokecc.co.uk/2018/05/25/t20-win-over-horsley-send-on-cricinfos-radar/), they’ll be at it again to see if a side has ever won a match with three sixes off the last three balls…and before you ask, remember that Ben Stokes wasn’t hit for all those sixes off the last four balls of that World T20 Final…and he had 19 runs to play with. Stoke needed 24 off the last over of this one.

James Trower continues as Club Captain, likewise Jase Earl retains his role skippering the 2nd XI.
