Will Thomson v Horsley Trust

Last Over ‘Win’ for the ‘Academy’

Sunday 17th June 2018
Surrey Trust League
Stoke D’Abernon 241 for 8 (40 overs)
Horsley & Send 236 all out (39.2 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 5 runs

Planning for Sunday took a strange direction this week as having previously e-mailed to say they would not be able to play a Trust League fixture on this date, (copy e-mail available on request!), when contacting the opposition to re-arrange they came back saying they had a team. As people know we play nice and rather than enforce a result we scrambled an XI together, ruining any chance of a Sunday XI friendly for some but paid-up members from that squad were offered the chance. Those who declined or were unable missed out on a tremendous game.

Robbie Blackburn

Robbie at the Double as 1s beat Cheam

Saturday 16th June 2018
Travelbag Surrey Championship – Division 3
Stoke D’Abernon 233 all out (47 overs)
Cheam 106 all out (32.5 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 127 runs

Stoke’s 1st XI moved up to 2nd place in the table with a big win over lowly Cheam who arrived at the Rec with quite a few of their players seen more recently in the 2nd XI and Sunday XIs. Nevertheless the necessary was done in an entertaining and dominant manner to secure maximum points.

Sunday XI v Cheam 10 June 2018

Sunday XI win at Cheam

Sunday 10th June 2018
Friendly
Stoke D’Abernon 226 for 7 (40 overs)
Cheam 154 all out (35.5 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 72 runs

Stoke’s Sunday XI recorded an impressive win at Cheam who were, as ever, welcoming hosts. There was the added bonus of the game being moved to Cheam’s main pitch after their scheduled Development Trust League game against Guildford was scratched by their opposition. Oddly one of their Development XI couldn’t be cajoled into this fixture so we faced a short-handed opposition for the second week running.

Neil Foster v WVCC June 2018

Sunday XI Nearly Achieve Improbable Win

Sunday 3rd June 2018
Friendly
Whiteley Village 187 all out (37 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 183 for 9 (40 overs)
Whiteley Village won by 4 runs

Thanks to Whiteley Village for offering this fixture and then playing it in the way that they did. Poor responses to requests for availability meant we were only able to advertise for a fixture late in the week and by then there were no appropriate home matches were on the boards. The most attractive one left was this local away match, the slight reservation being that it was against an opposition who had set themselves up to play a League game and had Walton-on-Thames 1s players – including their Overseas – who had lost their Sunday league opposition, and we all know what happened at Byfleet last year when we stepped in in similar circumstances. Chat ahead of the match and at the toss about relative strengths led to the Stoke XI fielding first.

A 65-ball century, (eventually out for 121 off 79), from Alastair Curran helped set up a great win for 10-player Stoke at Worcester Park. (Note not ten-man here as Anya Devon-Berry created a bit of history by being the first female player to play Under 21 Trust League cricket for the Club.)
