Friendly
Wisley Southside 139 for 6 (40 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 140 for 7 (36.1 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 3 wickets

Stoke’s Sunday XI completed a clean sweep of senior cricket victories at the weekend with a successful run chase at The Rec. Lots of familiar faces in the visitors’ line-up when they arrived, but they advertised themselves as “stronger than usual” and hustled Rod Thomson into giving them first use of the strip.

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.

Sunday 4th September 2016
Friendly
Worcester Park 217 for 4 (40 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 215 for 4 (40 overs)
Worcester Park won by 2 runs

Stoke’s run of thirteen straight wins in all senior cricket came to an end with a narrow defeat in an exciting game at the Rec. Full credit to visiting captain Wilkinson for keeping the game live which would not have been the approach in a League game.

Badgers 130 for 5 (30.1 overs)

An unbroken stand of 59 runs, the last 41 of them coming in the space of just 24 balls, brought an unexpectedly early finish to a match that looked like it was going to go the distance, the Badgers emerging victorious for the first time in this fixture since 2013.
