My Greatest XI : Dom Morley

The next Stoker to put forward his squad and greatest final XI is Dom Morley, who has written to us from his placement in the States…

Had a bit of time on my hands out here in Montana so thought I’d chip in to the best XI that I’ve played with debate, although mine is a very modern team: Read more

International Caps for Sonny Cott

After Bob Willis and Nat Sciver…Sonny Cott is the latest off the Stoke production line to progress to international honours.

Last week Sonny made his debut for Ireland’s Under 19s in the World Cup Qualifiers in Kuala Lumpur. Mixed results for him personally, (including being run out without facing a ball in the last match he was selected for), but nevertheless more proof of what can be achieved going through Stoke’s colts’ programme.

Sonny selected for Ireland

Former Stoke Academy product Sonny Cott has been selected for the Ireland under 15 squad.

News came in from an excited Sid Lahiri. Never one to miss out on an opportunity to give a plug to SLCA, Sid writes…

“…It gives me great pleasure to inform all of you that Sonny Cott, who started his career at Stoke D’Abernon and got an opportunity to play senior cricket at a young age, (doesn’t always happen at other clubs), and has been a student at our Academy, has been selected to represent Ireland Under 15s in the forthcoming Euro Championships starting in August.

Soggy End to Saturday Programme

Saturday Friendly
Stoke D’Abernon 127 all out (29.2 overs)
Merton 105 for 4 (19.2 overs)
Match Abandoned

Rain saved Stoke from probable defeat as the 2011 Saturday programme came to a close.

The Stoke Rec was bathed in sunshine at the agreed 12.30pm start. The Stoke XI, that frustratingly changed several times since the original team sheet was issued on Tuesday, were all present and correct, but the opposition was nowhere to be seen. Read more

1st XI force unlikely win over Sheen Park

Stoke D’Abernon 206 for 8 (40 overs)
Sheen Park 195 for 8 (40 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 11 Runs

Sheen Park made a welcome return to the Stoke D’Abernon Rec after a year’s absence and were seemingly cruising to victory at the drinks break, (120 for 1 chasing 207 to win), having posted an opening stand of 109 in just 16 overs; but were unable to withstand a great fightback and eventually fell eleven runs short of Stoke’s total.
