A Brief History
The Stoke D’Abernon CC Ladies section first entered League cricket in 2008 with devastating results. Under the guidance of Chris Hardy, Andy Page and numerous volunteers; the side entered Division 4 of the Women’s Cricket Southern League and were promoted to Division 3. (http://womenscsl.play-cricket.com/leaguetables/divisionTable.asp?id=10052077&seasonID=9)

Sadly the girls became a victim of their own success. A number, including Stoke captain Amy Page, (pictured below with some of her team-mates), who was the first captain of the Stoke Molesey Ladies CC, were continually selected for the Surrey Women’s 1st XI, and whilst the higher leagues were able to arrange bye-weeks in their fixture cards, lower down the ladder no exceptions could be given and Stoke were unable to play their best side in Division 3, and in some case had to concede matches due to lack of numbers.

When all the girls were available, they continued to win silverware, thrashing Reigate Priory in the 2009 Surrey Women’s Trust League competition. Sadly they were denied the opportunity to defend their title the following season when the playing conditions were altered so that county players were not allowed to take part!

Following recommendations from Surrey CCC for their county players to play in the highest leagues, a number of players were given little option but to leave Stoke, and we had to withdraw from the Women’s Cricket Southern League. A very young side was reformed in partnership with East Molesey who were suffering similar problems, and the new Stoke Molesey Ladies CC won their inaugural Surrey Trust League match against Oxted & Limpsfield.

Just one transitional year was needed. Trust League participation has continued and we have won the competition four times in the short period of existence as a merged club.

We welcome all new players of all abilities – a number of the all-conquering Stoke side had never played cricket before joining. Why not give it a try?
