Sunday 12th May 2019
Friendly
Stoke D’Abernon 148 all out (39.3 overs)
Odney 151 for 1 (26 overs)
Odney won by 9 wickets

Sunday 9th September 2018
Incredible availability meant that we needed to source an additional Sunday fixture to the one already in the card against Kingstonian. Our friends from Whiteley Village had an ad on the board, and a call to them resulted in a second game being agreed meaning everyone who was available at the time got a chance to play. Read more
