Oxshott v Stoke September 2018

Late season fun at Oxshott

Sunday 16th September 2018
Friendly
Stoke D’Abernon 220 for 5 (40 overs)
Maori Oxshott 222 for 5 (38.4 overs)
Maori Oxshott won by 4 wickets

With the clubs in different divisions in League cricket and the pre-season friendly wiped out by rain it took until mid-September to play a game against our friends and neighbours this year. It was worth the wait, though, as the sides played out an enjoyable match. Stoke took this one deep but the home side timed their run chase well with former Stoker George Depree pulling a six to win to and end his reign as Maori Oxshott’s Sunday skipper.

Finch 85 not out and Phipps 51 not out v Whiteley Village and Kingstonian September 2018

Two Sunday XI Matches – Two Wins! – President 85*

Sunday 9th September 2018
Incredible availability meant that we needed to source an additional Sunday fixture to the one already in the card against Kingstonian. Our friends from Whiteley Village had an ad on the board, and a call to them resulted in a second game being agreed meaning everyone who was available at the time got a chance to play.

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.

Sunday XI play well but settle for a Draw

Sunday 19th August 2018
Friendly
Stoke D’Abernon 223 for 7 dec (43 overs)
Surrey Cryptics 123 for 7 (42 overs)
Match Drawn

In years to come people could look at this scorecard and think ‘bore draw’ but the game went the distance and remained interesting until the last few deliveries.

Thomson 79 v Kingstonian August 2018

Sunday XI Beaten despite Thomson Career Best

Sunday 12th August 2018
Friendly
Stoke D’Abernon 169 for 8 (30 overs)
Kingstonian 172 for 4 (25.2 overs)
Kingstonian won by 6 wickets

Both sides were rewarded for giving it a go and got in a fun game that, although ended in defeat for Stoke, gave the younger players more valuable experience in adult cricket and the older ones time in the middle.

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.

Kelso and Dennis

Sunday Nine beat the Chelsea Nomads

Sunday 15th July 2018
Friendly
Chelsea Nomads 191 for 9 (40 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 192 for 3 (33.4 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 7 wickets

With World Cup fever apparently over on Wednesday night, this long-standing fixture was confirmed the following evening with the opposition saying “we have ten – should be able to get an 11th” and Stoke having 14 to pick from. A few of the 14 switched to Saturday to make the 3rd XI match happen, leaving us with 10+TBC – even if TBC wasn’t around, still a good ten. Sadly TBC wasn’t available, no worries there…but then two pulled out with bad backs – one first thing, another an hour before the start – resulting in an SOS. Roddy Kelso answered the call, so having lost a toss committing us to a fielding stint and no chance to sign up any others we made do with nine…and what a performance on another hot day.

Enjoyable day despite defeat for the Sunday XI

Sunday 1st July 2018
Friendly
Old Ashfordians 229 for 4 (40 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 200 for 7 (40 overs)
Old Ashfordians won by 29 runs

The original Women’s Surrey Trust League match was postponed in the week after the opposition were unable to raise a side. This left the Stoke Rec free for a home friendly and our good friends the Old Ashfordians were able to come along and play.

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.
