Logie’s Birthday Missions : 29 completed, 41 to Go

Yesterday evening saw Logie complete his 29th catch-up mission, (of 70 in his calendar so far), for his 70th birthday.

For those who don’t know Logie, he was Stoke’s 1s skipper in 1997 and 1998, (he also captained the 2s for part of 1995, all of 1996 and all of 2000), and assembled a squad of Stokers to help celebrate his birthday, (not until April!), at The Plough over the road from the Club yesterday evening.

Cooper and Engelen

Two Hundreds in the Same Innings

India have had two centurions in an innings on two occasions in the last few days.

In adult men’s cricket, Stoke have had two centurions in the same innings twice…in our entire history(!) both in the 1994 season.

On the 3rd July 1994 Mike Cooper and Simon Engelen both hit centuries in the rout of Guildford & Godalming : http://sdacc.play-cricket.com/view_results_details?id=10445529
It was Mike’s first century for the Club, (Simon’s second – of eight), having been run out for 99 less than a month earlier.

Alan Wiseman

Cover Point

With thoughts turning to Alan’s funeral tomorrow, one of many things he did for the membership – before the days of the internet and other instant messaging and social media, (and the  Play Cricket network) – was to produce “Cover Point” – a periodic newsletter that was posted to all members.

Alan Wiseman

Tributes to Alan Wiseman flood in

We were very saddened to learn that Stoke legend Alan Wiseman, passed away at the weekend.

Within hours of the new breaking Stokers in the UK and around the world have sent in their tributes:

Chris Gudgeon : “Very sad to hear of his passing. I cherish great memories…his dogs often left to roam the Rec during games…his rather unreliable Volvo cars…his thespian skills with the Cobham Players…The Folk Club. But overall my abiding thoughts are of his huge love for the Cclub…all of us heard of his dismissals being delivered by future Test players…caused by giraffes but Alan was a great competitor. He also served the club as Chairman…and was always around…Committee meetings it is fair to say we’re amusingly chaotic…but full of good memories. Will miss you Alan…puff away on that pipe in the clubhouse in the sky.”
