Surrey Championship Division 5
Stoke D’Abernon 198 all out (48.5 overs)
Godalming 188 all out (49.5 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon, (9 points), beat Godalming, (0 points), by 10 runs
Just one place separated the sides in the table before the start of play, and the excellent contest that wasn’t decided until the final over was reflective of how well the sides, both missing first choice players, were matched. Stoke’s marginally better strength in depth on the day proved decisive in a tremendous advertisement for the division and the spirit of cricket.
