Reigate Priory v Stoke July 2017

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.

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

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.
