May 2022 Report

PEPPARD Stoke Row CC have started their summer with several close pre-season games – albeit sadly falling on the wrong side of the result more often than not!

The most exciting match to date was the National Village Cup home clash with White Waltham, where PSR totalled 227-8 (Rich Ashton 76, Scott Harris 55) before the away side sensationally chased the score down off the final ball – their captain Ben Scarborough named as the Player of the Round for the whole of Great Britain and winning a case of beer for his troubles.

The league season started at the beginning of May and the 1st XI are excited to be playing in the Thames Valley League for the first time, having won promotion last season.

Elsewhere, the 2nd and 3rd XI continue to compete in the Berkshire League, while the club runs two Sunday sides and junior cricket from Under 6s to U19s, including girls.

Weekly nets take place at club sponsor The Oratory School from 6.15pm on Thursday nights, with any potential new members welcome to join.

If interested in becoming part of the club, please contact ex-Chairman Gerry Bacon on 07785 771 847 or psrccltd@gmail.com

MORE than 70 youngsters enjoyed some fun in the sun as they took part in Peppard Stoke Row’s first primary schools Kwik Cricket competition for Years Four and Five on Wednesday.
Emmer Green, Caversham primary and Thameside all provided two teams for the afternoon, while one each came from Woodcote and Pangbourne.
The sides all played four matches at Peppard Common, with Woodcote eventually crowned the inaugural champions on a day when enjoyment was the number one aim.
The club’s first-team wicket-keeper Michael Chard, who runs MNR Coaching, led the organisation and running of the event and said: “It was a fabulous day, and we expertly evaded the flash floods by around 10 minutes.
“Well done to everyone who made the day so enjoyable, but especially The Oratory School young helpers who controlled the matches by scoring and umpiring, Priya Sukul and Nichola Watts for sorting the refreshments, and Director of Junior cricket, Adam Lotery, for his support.
“However, the most important people were the players and there was some fabulous cricket on show – my thanks to all the teachers who brought their pupils along.
“It was brilliant to see so much action and hopefully the kids will continue to play cricket as they get older.”
Peppard Stoke Row CC runs junior cricket from Under 6s to U19s. If you would like to get involved, please contact Nichola Watts on 07880 743 112 or via email at nichola2watts@yahoo.co.uk
