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.

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.
