Senior & Academy Nets start on Sunday 25th February 2018

Dear Members! (…and Prospective New Members!)

Senior Nets(*) are starting on Sunday 25th February 2018 and will run through to Sunday 8th April 2018, although note a couple of weeks off below. (We will then make a decision on whether to net or play a match on the 15th April when we know availability and weather.)

* These nets are also provided for younger players within the colts section and the Academy who we expect to play in the Development Trust League, (we are now playing at Under 18 level rather than Under 21 – see web-site), and the new Under 17 30:30 League. Members of the Over 40s squad are also more than welcome to come along in addition to the weekly sessions with Kevin and Tim.

Outdoor Nets Start this Week!

A reminder that with effect from Wednesday 19th April 2017, the Clubhouse will be open from 6pm every Wednesday for senior nets followed by a few beers.

Please make every effort to attend. No need to check if nets are still on if the weather is iffy. The Club and the bar will still be open, rain or shine.

As many members of the Over 40s squad play in our League and other senior cricket, the weekly Over 40s nets at Parkside with Tim will shift to Thursdays.





Senior Nets Start on Sunday 12th March 2017 – New Venue

Dear Members!

Senior Nets(*) are starting on Sunday 12th March 2017 and will run through to Sunday 9th April 2017. (We will then make a decision on whether to net or play a match on the 16th April when we know availability and weather.)

Note we have a new venue and a slightly different time-slot this year:

Venue : Esher Church of England High School, More Lane, Esher, Surrey. KT10 8AP
Directions : http://www.esherhigh.surrey.sch.uk/7/contact-details
Time : 11am to 1pm
You don’t need to do the full two hours, but if you’re coming late or need to leave early, please let us know in advance so we can work out batting and bowling orders.

Cost : As always we would like to run these nets to cost, and we’ve costed on the assumption the turnout this year will be roughly the same as last. As the turnout last year was so good, there is an element of quantity discount/’Buy One Get One Free’/’Five for Four’ built in! You can:

* Bring a one-off payment for £20 for all five sessions
* Pay £10 that covers two sessions, (no rebate if you don’t come to a second one)
* There will be no charge for Under 16s or any members of the Stoke Molesey Ladies squad who want to come along, although you’re more than welcome to bring a contribution to the Clubhouse Extension Fund!

See you all on the 12th!

* Also open to younger players wishing to be considered for selection for Surrey Trust League, Under 19 T20 Blast or friendly adult cricket.





Club Open Thursday Evening this week, not Wednesday

With a few of our regulars having commitments on Wednesday this week, we have moved this week’s ‘Nets & Social’ to Thursday.

The Club will be open from 6pm for beers, (it should be a pleasant evening to continue celebrations of a good League season), and a few have expressed an interest in having a net ahead of this weekend’s fixtures against Sheen Park on Saturday, (replay after last Saturday’s rain-off), and Kingstonian on Sunday, to keep themselves in nick.

Therefore we’ll bat and bowl in the astro nets at the top, (please bring appropriate footwear), as long as light allows before joining those who will just do the ‘social’ part in the bar afterwards!

Any prospective members for next year reading this are welcome to attend and introduce themselves.





T20 Cup and Senior Nets this evening

A reminder that Stoke are in Surrey Championship T20 action this evening at The Rec against Valley End, 6pm start.

Senior nets for those not selected, (but bring your whites just in case – you never know, you might get a late call-up!), will still take place as usual up in the astro nets.

Please make every effort to come down and support the team. The bar will be open! If we win we will be at home to Oxshott in the next round after they beat Byfleet yesterday evening.

Outdoor Nets start on Wednesday

After finishing our indoor pre-season programme at the weekend, training now moves outdoors to our traditional regular Wednesday evening ‘Nets & Social.’

The Club will be open from 6pm every Wednesday for the remainder of the season for all those looking to play senior league or friendly cricket, Trust League or Under 19 T20 Blast to have a hit, turn their arms over and or have a drink or two.

Even if the weather is or looks iffy on the day please come down.

There are a couple of jobs left over from the working parties that need doing/finishing off to make sure we’re ready for next weekend’s matches.

See you there!

Pre-Season Nets start on February 14th

Nets for seniors and anyone planning to play in the U21 Trust League and U19 T20 Blast are starting on Sunday 14th February 2016 and will run through to Sunday 17th April 2016. (There is no session on Sunday 27th March, Easter Sunday.)

Venue : Downsend School, Leatherhead Road, KT22 8TJ

Time : 11.45am to 1.45pm

Cost: As in past years will run these nets to cost. Ideally, if you could come with a one-off payment of £40, (11% discount), for all the sessions, that will ease the administrative strain, but you can pay £5.00 per session on the day if you don’t think you can make them all.

See you all on the 14th!
