Sunday XI v Concorde 18 06 2017

Sunday XI One Wicket Away

Sunday 18th June 2017
Friendly
Stoke D’Abernon 236 for 5 declared (43 overs)
Concorde 179 for 9 (40 overs)
Match Drawn

The hottest day of the year saw Stoke and Concorde play out a draw at Sendholme.

Batting first, Doug Gilbertson was originally listed at No.3 but faced the first ball of the match as the person originally selected for the role was sat on the roller at Stoke with less than 20 minutes to the start. After a quiet opening maiden, it was anything but at the start of the second over as debutant Ishan Mulchandani drilled the first two balls he faced through the covers and mid-off, then pulled the third along the ground through mid-wicket – not a bad way to start your Stoke career – and he hit another four before the over was out.

Defeat for Sunday XI but Youngsters Shine

Sunday 11th June 2017
Friendly
Stoke D’Abernon 148 for 9 (40 overs)
Epsom Methodists 149 for 5 (34.4 overs)
Epsom Methodists won by 5 wickets

An inspection of the scorecard makes this look like a routine ‘restrict & chase’ for the opposition, but it was far from that. Stoke can take a number of positives from this, notably the contributions from their younger players.

Chaotic day for the Sunday XI ends with a Win

Sunday 4th June 2017
Friendly
Stoke D’Abernon 101 all out (33.4 overs)
Richmond Nomads 69 all out (26.3 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 32 runs

Another mad day in the life of the Stoke Sunday side but it all worked out in the end!

A sunny day, all the Stokers present and correct, clock ticking towards the point where the opposition should be starting to appear…but no sign of them. A speculative call to them to see how they were getting on was met with a rather surprised voice at the other end suggesting that the fixture was next Sunday. Cue panic with the tea lady now on site too!

Sunday XI beat Wisley

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.

Surrey Championship T20 – Round 1
Camberley 107 all out (19.2 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 111 for 3 (14.4 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 7 wickets

Stoke progressed to the next round of the Surrey Championship T20 with a superb all-round team performance where every player left something positive on the scorecard. By their own admission at the toss the home side “scraped” a team together, but Stoke faced the same challenge, plus the lengthy round trip that included a closed M3 on the way home.
