3rd XI lose narrowly at Guildford

Saturday 26th August 2017
Friendly
Guildford 82 all out (27 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 3rd XI 69 all out (32.2 overs)
Guildford won by 13 runs

Good availability for the League sides provided an opportunity to play an additional friendly match. In the end, numbers fell back after demands for players higher up the chain, another also pulled out two after confirming he was available; but Stoke still managed to get a team of ten and nearly pulled off a great win.

The first three show Richie looking to go past Michael Holding’s count of 249 wickets. He equalled Mikey’s count with an early one but a few near misses meant the day ended in a tie. The tale of the tape is now as follows:

Curran v Worcester Park - August 2017

Curran Century in Trust League win at Worcester Park

Sunday 6th August 2017
Surrey Trust League
Stoke D’Abernon 228 for 8 (40 overs)
Worcester Park 139 all out (29.2 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 89 runs

A 65-ball century, (eventually out for 121 off 79), from Alastair Curran helped set up a great win for 10-player Stoke at Worcester Park. (Note not ten-man here as Anya Devon-Berry created a bit of history by being the first female player to play Under 21 Trust League cricket for the Club.)

2nd XI complete double over Ewell to stay in the hunt

Saturday 5th August 2017
Travelbag Surrey Championship Division 4 – 2nd XI Competition
Stoke D’Abernon 2nd XI 218 for 9 (50 overs)
Ewell 2nd XI 170 all out (38 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 2nd XI won by 32 runs (Revised target of 203 in 43 overs)

Stoke started the day at the bottom of a group of hopefuls for the second promotion spot along with runaway leaders Chessington, and did their cause no harm when the XI, missing a few first choice players including the Captain and Vice Captain, scored a superb win having lost the toss.

Reigate Priory v Stoke July 2017

Learning Experience for Weak Academy XI

Sunday 9th July 2017
Surrey Trust League
Stoke D’Abernon 125 all out (36.3 overs)
Reigate Priory 126 for 1 (21.3 overs)
Reigate Priory won by 9 wickets

It would be an understatement to say that this weekend’s selection and finalising teams was like herding cats, (great book of the same name for those who may care to read it, by the way), and Stoke’s Academy bore the brunt yesterday, running into a different herd, one of llamas in Reigate, and did their best with limited resources.

Chaotic day for the Sunday XI ends with a Win

Sunday 4th June 2017
Friendly
Stoke D’Abernon 101 all out (33.4 overs)
Richmond Nomads 69 all out (26.3 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 32 runs

Another mad day in the life of the Stoke Sunday side but it all worked out in the end!

A sunny day, all the Stokers present and correct, clock ticking towards the point where the opposition should be starting to appear…but no sign of them. A speculative call to them to see how they were getting on was met with a rather surprised voice at the other end suggesting that the fixture was next Sunday. Cue panic with the tea lady now on site too!

Under 13s Bounce back from Cup Defeat

Trevor Davis reviews the first week of the Under 13s season:

We completed our first weekend of the season on a high note, having lost in the Surrey Cup to a well-drilled Pyrford team on Friday night. Patrick O’Neill was definitely the pick of the players in that first game, retiring on 32 and taking 2 wickets for 13 in 4 overs. William Loughlin also weighed in well on debut, scoring 28 runs and taking 1 wicket for 36 off his 4 overs. Nevertheless, our 39 extras, (pity we couldn’t retire them on 30 too!), came back to haunt us, and we final lost by 48 runs.
