Toby Tarrant Award

My Greatest XI – Toby Tarrant

Another “My Greatest XI “ has dropped into the Club in-box, this one courtesy of Toby Tarrant who writes…

Here you go guys, I’m sat by the pool in Verona compiling this. The things I do for this Club…

Ian Hopton
“Hoppy” has to be one of the first names on the teamsheet. Mr.Reliable in many ways, I can’t think of a game where he hasn’t contributed with either the ball, the bat or in the field.

Plus we need him to lead the warm up and roll the wicket.

My Greatest XI – Adrian Mills

The latest Stoker to submit his Greatest XI is our newest member of the 500-club Adrian Mills. Selected by many others in their best ever sides, it’s time for Po to share his own selection with the world. Po writes…

I’ve had 16 seasons at Stoke, (so far), during which time I’ve played alongside hundreds of other players of varying abilities. Selecting the best will always be a matter of judgement so feel free to disagree with my selections – I know some of you will. I’ve decided for the purposes of this list that I have to have played at least 10 games with each player. That way I’ve been able to disregard anyone I’ve just played the odd one or two games with. Here goes…
