Surrey Championship T20 Entry Confirmed

Part of the League Rep’s job is to make sure we’re entered for the Surrey Championship T20 competition. Surrey are one of the participating counties in this national tournament that, if the county winners are successful, they go into the regional rounds leading to a possible finals day at a First Class County Ground televised on Sky Sports. Last year our friends and neighbours from Ashtead made it to the final; John Vaughan-Davies, (Stoke groundsman who has also played the odd game for us to show us how well our square plays!), scooped the man-of-the-match award in the semi-final.

1st XI defeated by Godalming

Surrey Championship Division 5
Godalming 292 for 8 (55 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 228 all out (44.2 overs)
Godalming won by 64 runs

Stoke’s promotion hopes suffered a dent as an off-colour display with the ball and in the field put too much pressure on the batting line up who were bowled out in the final over going for a ‘Winning Draw’ rather than settling for just a losing one.

1st XI edge out Godalming

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.

Rain ends 1st XI promotion hopes

Surrey Championship Division 5

Chipstead Coulsdon and Walcountians 243 for 5 (50 overs)

Stoke D’Abernon 103 for 3 (22.2 overs)

Chipstead Coulsdon and Walcountians, (9 points), beat Stoke D’Abernon, (0 points), by 5 runs

Stoke’s slim chances of promotion from Division 5 were finally ended by a torrential downpour mid-way through their run chase leaving them six runs short of the requisite total after 22.2 overs. At the same time, the ‘win’ points gained by Chipstead were enough to secure them a deserved promotion of their own.
