Valiant 1st XI Come Up Just Short in Thriller

Saturday 6th July 2019
AJ Fordham Surrey Championship
Farnham 278 for 8 declared (53 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 263 all out (44.1 overs)
Farnham won by 15 runs

The unpredictable trend of results in this year’s division continued at the Stoke Rec as Farnham, occupiers of one of the bottom two spots, scored a win in a high-scoring encounter.

Put into bat on a good pitch, the visitors made a fast start, posting an opening stand of 65 before first change Shawn Dyson nicked off Hicks for 32. Davies and No.3 Thorpe continued to keep the scoring rate high; moving the total to 127 before Max Subba Row castled Davies, (65), and No.4 Berry with successive deliveries.

Farnham made light of this double-strike, though, and a partnership of 114 followed as Thorpe, (68), and Rooney, (84), tried to bat Stoke out of the game. Dyson, (2 for 67), and Robbie Blackburn, (2 for 52), collected wickets towards the close, as did the returning Toby Tarrant. A run out effected by Ian Hopton off what would be the last ball of the innings prompted a 53 over declaration on 275 for 8.

Whilst many sides would think pessimistically about a winning draw or defeat avoidance when faced with such a total, Stoke played the brand of cricket that has served them so well over the last three seasons and gave it a right go. Subba Row and James Trower were early departures, but Hopton and Dyson constructed a nice stand of 84 before the former was dismissed for 36.

Alastair Curran, (26), helped with another stand of 64; and when he and Dyson, given leg-before for 87 from 72, departed in quick succession, most sides given this match situation might assess other options.

Not this Stoke side, though. Blackburn was promoted and smashed 45 from just 18 balls; Roddy Kelso gave good support and despite both their dismissals Tom Frost continued the chase, cracking 33 from just 19 balls. Sadly he was to run out of partners was the last man dismissed with seventeen balls to go and Stoke just 13 short.

A tremendous advert for the game and both clubs. The return 50:50 match is something to look forward to if this one was anything to go by.

We now have reached the half-way stage and Stoke sit in fifth place in the table, but still within one win of the top two. Another home game next week, this time Worcester Park come to The Rec.

1st XI P2 W2 after beating Bank of England

Saturday 18th May 2019
AJ Fordham Surrey Championship
Bank of England 209 for 9 (50 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 210 for 2 (29 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 8 wickets

Two wins out of two for Stoke’s 1st XI as they chased down Bank of England’s moderate total in double-quick time.

BofE’s openers made a fast start having been inserted, but the bowlers then found their ranges reduced them to 74 for 5; three wickets for Robbie Blackburn, (3 for 57), and the first, (of two each), for Shawn Dyson and Will Frost.

Frost Jnr, Dyson and Hopton, (1 for 19 from his ten), suffocated the scoring; and once a sixth wicket partnership of 41 was broken, BofE laboured to 156 for nine.

A frustrating unbroken last wicket stand of 53 meant a total of 209 for 9 was achieved, but not many sides will beat this Stoke team when the highest scorer in the innings is 27. Five players made it to the 20s but no further. There were 22 extras.

Toby Tarrant, (1 for 45), Will Frost, (2 for 28), Dyson, (2 for 35), complete the bowling figures. There were three catches for Dyson – one off his own bowling – and one each for Kane Fullalove, Roddy Kelso and the Frost brothers.

In reply Max Subba Row and James Trower made a quick start to the chase; 21 from 3, 40 from 6, 68 from 10, and the century partnership was brought up in just the 16th over.

Having passed 1000 runs as captain last weekend, Trower added another 49 to his count, hitting four fours and a six along the way before being caught off the bowling of Winder who would be the only bowler to go for less than a run-a-ball throughout the innings.

Absenteeism of a couple of regulars provided an opportunity for Tom Frost at number 3 and he made full use of his chance, finding the fence seven times in an unbeaten 38.

At the other end Subba Row moved serenely to 82, (16×4), before he was leg-before with the total on 177.

Dyson, (16 not out), smashed off the majority of the rest in the space of three overs to complete a resounding win.

Next week Stoke travel to picturesque Chipstead who are also unbeaten following an opening day tie and a crushing defeat of Sanderstead.
