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.

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.

Neil Foster v WVCC June 2018

Sunday XI Nearly Achieve Improbable Win

Sunday 3rd June 2018
Friendly
Whiteley Village 187 all out (37 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 183 for 9 (40 overs)
Whiteley Village won by 4 runs

Thanks to Whiteley Village for offering this fixture and then playing it in the way that they did. Poor responses to requests for availability meant we were only able to advertise for a fixture late in the week and by then there were no appropriate home matches were on the boards. The most attractive one left was this local away match, the slight reservation being that it was against an opposition who had set themselves up to play a League game and had Walton-on-Thames 1s players – including their Overseas – who had lost their Sunday league opposition, and we all know what happened at Byfleet last year when we stepped in in similar circumstances. Chat ahead of the match and at the toss about relative strengths led to the Stoke XI fielding first.

Walton-on-Thames won by 8 runs

Stoke suffered a narrow defeat in their opening Trust League match of the year in a game they were well placed to win at drinks during the chase, then seemingly out of it five overs later, but then almost pulling off the improbable with Club competition record 9th and 10th wicket partnerships.

Chessington 2nd XI 252 for 4 (50 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 2nd XI 136 all out (39.5 overs)
Chessington 2nd XI won by 116 runs

Stoke and Chessington have enjoyed some good games over the last few years but a slight lack of depth due to exams and 1st XI call ups meant this one was a bit more one-sided.

Sunday XI beat Ham & Petersham

Sunday 13th May 2018
Friendly
Ham & Petersham 146 for 9 (40 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 148 for 4 (29.5 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 6 wickets

A new look Sunday XI including a number of exciting prospects from our Academy scored a good win in a match that wasn’t arranged until Saturday morning, then was under threat due to the previous day’s rains. The ground pulled up OK, Hoppy & Shawn reporting early to work on a wet patch to ensure the start was only slightly delayed.

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.

Sunday 3rd September 2017
Friendly
Stoke D’Abernon 199 for 6 (40 overs)
Thames Ditton 188 for 9 (40 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 11 runs

After the euphoria of the previous day cricket resumed with an entertaining game at Giggs Hill Green, Stoke emerging victorious by 11 runs. Both sides should take a lot of credit for playing through persistent drizzle and on occasion arctic conditions.
