Alex Travers batting for Surrey Women's 1st against Middlesex at The Oval this summer
Congratulations to 16 year old EMCC and Stoke Molesey player Alexandra Travers who has been selected for the England Women's Academy (formerly EWDP u19s).
Alex first picked up a plastic bat at East Molesey Cricket Club at the age of 9 and has been part of our quadruple Trust-League-champions side, Stoke Molesey Ladies since its inauguration. She has played County Age Group cricket for Surrey from the age of 11 and this summer played her first full season for the Surrey Women's 1st XI. She was also part of the Surrey Girls U15 side who won their regional league to go on to achieve joint 3rd in the National County Finals this year.
Alex says she would like to thank so many people at EMCC and Stoke Molesey Ladies as well as her Surrey coaches who have helped her get this far and she really looks forward to the new challenges on the England programme.
Very Well Done, Alex and Best of Luck with your future career!
Following a season finale at Graburn Way, defeating Epsom twice on the same day, Stoke Molesey Ladies who are undefeated this year, have claimed the Surrey Trust League Trophy for the 4th year on the trot. This must make the ladies the most successful squad in the club (we think).
A massive congratulations to the all the ladies and thank you to Emma and Amy for all the organising -and last but not least; A big thank you to Elliott Hanson for taking on the coaching this year
We look forward to welcoming some more young colts to the ladies' training next season.
The Moles knew it would be tough, but after six games played they were winless and desperately looking for a win. The next two weeks felt like must wins, away to Beddington and Sutton. Despite turning up late, Dominic Reed literally steamed in and took 5-60, leaving the Moles with 141 to win. Well placed at 58-2, the rain set in and despite best efforts the teams couldn’t get back out. 4 points shared. Sutton was now an even bigger game, however the English summer won this encounter without a ball being bowled.
At the halfway point in the season, the Moles were winless but still fighting. Week 10 was the week of Frankos on fire. Guildford were met by new arrival, Frank Knight who took 5-61, as the Moles crept over the line 8 down chasing 123. From here on in, performances improved and so did the atmosphere, with FNB – Friday Night Beers becoming a regular event.
Week 12 saw Wimbledon travel to the fortress – Graburn Way. After dismissing Wimbledon for 205, openers Nicos (70) and Mooro (49) set the chase up, with Jonty Hadfield getting the Moles over the line. Losses followed to Ashtead and Sunbury, with a healthy number of bonus points becoming a theme. Next up, Sutton travelled to Graburn and with contributions from a number of the Moles, Sutton were beaten and the momentum seemed to shift.
