SCC won by 33 Runs with 148 all out

SRCC at 115 runs all out
40 over match timed match



Stoke Row CC is a brand new fixture and came out of our great game at Stonor a couple of years ago. It’s a very pretty village and the ground is neatly filed at the top of the high street and conveniently close to a very nice pub – our kind of ground! Surrounded by trees and beneath a warm sky of dark, flat clouds and sunshine, the weather behaved itself and we got under way.

Skipper Jontin

Under the fine skipperage of comrade commissar Jontin, we set to the game. It’s true that comrade commissar Jontin is a firm hand upon the tiller, it’s true that he is stiff of voice and firm in approach, but there is no doubt that he is the right man to be stiff and firm once taken in hand.

Taking guard together was opener Marx-B and Yankheroff. The former was to settle in for a good long stretch, but sadly not Yankheroff. Caught May off Roberts. Marx was in true form and not off anywhere in a hurry.

Up to the crease followed Busteroff adding 9 to the score and then Conbramovich. This fine gentleman of cricket was to be seen scampering back and forth with Marx, each passing each other in a graceful manner. However after adding 13 he was taken by A.Roberts.

Twizzle showed great flash and panache and knocked up a commendable 32. This was a great addition and put a slight air of unrest amongst the oppo. He was eventually LBW to Kimber, but this knock put us up on the map.

Another knock of note is 17 scored by Soldya. Great ball placement and a vigorous demeanor. So when finally we were all NINE out for 148, I feel we had a made a fairly good bash.

And now for tea – THE VICTORIA SPONGE was gorgeous!

Bowling opened with Yankheroff and myself, Yuri. It took a while to work ourselves up into a stew, but we kept good economy and kept their run rate down. And then the wood began to tumble. Yankheroff was outstanding and  bowled two, LBW another caught another later on!

I obliged with a niggley wicket and my new and amusing skippy run-up. Caused souly by my lack of effort in measuring out my run! But talking of run-ups, Soldya provided just what the atmosphere required – a breath taking run up of 100 yards! That had everyone tittering and remembering the point of an amateur Sunday XI game – fun.

Say what
He called me a what?

Hats off to Twizzle – Skipper advised him to lower his pace below 80mph and he took it down to 79.8 – which was generous!! He slammed into the wickets of May, Roberts and Kimber and those balls that didn’t hit the stumps, were later found in Middlesex.

Chipmonkski was wicky for the majority of the match and made great work with his hands and I must also commend skipper Jontin for helping scoring whilst i made my brief journey to the crease.

We got them all out on the 30th over leaving them on 115.

Comrades, from the bottom of my heart and on behalf of us all who form the SCC, I say congratulations and thank you. May we preserve forever the memory of this game in our hearts for it showed us that victory is possible for us, that comradery is a key element to our play and that if we lose sight of FUN in our team, we lose the point in playing at all.

MATCH REPORT – Grace Cup Tournament


All games out of 4 lost.
Last place of 4

Once more we grace the fields of Roehampton. Fields which are as flat as a billiard table, wickets as tended as a maidens vizog. The bacon baps and coffee were laid for us to devour and the reception was warm. Our team this year was new blood, Hodderofski, Yuri, Sewelski, Chipmunkski, Cobramovich, Soldya and of course, Yankheroff! What a line up. The opposition against us were: Deutsche Bank, Slaughter and May, Osborne Clarke and Willis.

What follows now is some random stats. The reason is I couldn’t photograph all of the score sheets for the matches and so I am relying on fond memories of the day by the players. Self verification required, comrades!



From Soldyai got one wicket – caught T.Richardson. Runs – am trying to remember…didn’t get any 4s or 6s – got about 6 runs in the last game and only 1 or 2 in the others I think – maybe 12 runs in total???

Booby Duck

From Cobramovich: I only batted in the 2 matches you don’t have. As I walked in after succumbing, the scorers announced me as scoring 13 in the first of these, and 17 in the final one. (2 fours in the later innings). I also got a catch in the first match off Hodderov’s bowling, but no wickets bowling.

From Hodderoffski: 1st Match – 12 runs (not out), 2nd Match – 4 runs (run out), 1 wicket (caught, Cobramovich), 3rd Match – DNB, 1 wicket (bowled), 4th Match – 1 run,  1 wicket (caught and bowled) – 1×6=scored

So comrades, please pay it some heed next season as it truly is good fun and we are able to do a lot of good work for a good cause. Thank you!

Well comrades, that’s the kind of numbers we don’t see very often. Indeed, I think that maybe our highest score – time will tell as I delve into our records. Yes, I know we lost – I mean come on. We know our motto, we our know our ethos. To us it is the fun and the comradery and the hope of a win. Today we achieved all of those things and more and that makes me a happy Premier and I hope the SCC proud too?

The Count

We had a very different team in make up too. A big welcome goes out to The Count Oblonskaya – Owen Sewellski, Son of Andropov Sewellski and first time in the field for a whole match. Not an easy feat for a pre-teen – we salute you! (Admittedly his nickname is a mix of Tolstoy’s characters, but who’s complaining? You talking to me? Yeah, you… If Tolstoy has a problem he can roll in his grave! Incidentally, Tolstoy’s grave can be found here.

Chesham Bois were into bat first. Our Captain Marx gathered us up and in we went. Our field looked new and vital. Faces for the day and special guests Kelly Lunn and Jerry Canifyouneedoneski. Founder member Dil Dhillonoffsky was back amongst the fold and 2013 new blood, Tomsk (Tom Mayhew). Bowling opened with our usual bowlers of myself and Brother Chipmunkski. We withered away at them for 12 overs shared for 38 and 42 but Withams and Holloway were reluctant to be out. How annoying! With more yelling in the field and brotherly encouragement we pushed on to the new blood of Lunov and Twizzle (Tristanoff). This certainly was an increase in pace and the put masses of pressure on until Withams was caught for 61 off Lunov – who held it? I don’t know.

Big Stretch for Robski

Great figures for Lunov with 18 off 8 with 1 wicket to boot. Twizzle not far ahead with 12 off 8 and 4 maidens – as if scoring runs is an illegal activity! Well done you two. Bowling then carried through to Dhillofski, Soldya and Tomsk – 23, 57 and 18 off 4,6 and 2 respectively. BUT a superb Golden duck wicket for Soldya on the last ball. Their wickets were retired: J.Holloway, 2 run outs for Beeson & Hazelhurst and of course, Golden Duck for L.Saunders.

A very hospitable Tea followed, very nice folk at Chesham it has to be said. I like the tactic of weighing down the wanderers with delicious cake – but in this instance, it backfires as we like to languish as the un-victorious anyway, so we achieve success AND eat cake!

As we slotted into bat, Dil and Marx strolled out. The latter amply supported by his most encouraging of sons, Twizzle. Dil solidly provided 25 until caught off Saunders (get used to that name). But Marx was defiant and was making a good exterior toilet facility impression, that made of bricks. He and Tomsk were now plying their trade. Lovely to see Tomsk amongst us, in particular his fast swivelling stroke.

At 6pm, Marx was strolling back, caught off Saunders. His score 27. Our praise for his dots may earn a new Dorothy award – we shall see. Robski was now with Tomsk but unfortunately briefly – shame as we love the Robski drive (caught off Saunders – aha! Getting the pattern?) Twizzle next for an 8 minute knock before being Run-Out – Saunders. The guest Lunov to join Tomsk. Good bowling from this comrade and batting too. As Tomsk left (A delicious 44, thank you!) – Lunov and Soldya were present.  The former finally departed by L.Saunders (different!) for a very useful 33 and now The Count. Young Sewellski  strolled to the crease with admirable determination and grit – all the pain of a classic Andropov Stop now going from his memory, he was ready to bat. And a fine beginning to his career he had. In total facing 12 balls and scoring his first ever run. Well done Comrade!

Yuri for a change - in bat!
Yuri for a change – in bat!

Chipmunkski and Yuri came up the rear but despite the former adding 23 to the total before being bowled P.Withams, we had not achieved our goal by 29 runs. But a high score for us and as i review the stats soon, you can all see for yourselves. Big thanks to our hosts of course who are very welcoming and have a nice pitch for us to play on. Many thanks to the all of those were in our team and especially congratulations and welcome to The Count, Owen Sewellski.

It’s a lovely little fixture that nods goodnight to the season and leaves us all with a feeling of joy with a tinge of sadness. But the greeting is very warm and the pitch very sweet, so we shall hopefully be back next year.

Do Svidaniya!
