2017 was the most successful season in the club’s history. The 1st XI won the first division of the Fuller’s Brewery Surrey County League and lost in the final of the league cup. The 2nd XI came 5th but at times struggled to field a full eleven. The Sunday team played a series of very good friendlies but the mid-week team was blighted by bad weather that seemed to affect many Wednesday evenings.
Three batting records were broken in 2017: Charlie Major and Matt Clarke posted the second highest partnership in the club’s history when they scored 246 against Long Ditton on the 8th July. This is also the best opening partnership ever recorded beating the previous record set by Dan Jones and Matt Ross in 2002. Ian and Andrew Kehl broke the record tenth wicked partnership. Their 75 broke the previous record of 74 set by Peter Pople and Jack Bowley in 2006. What with Bill Turner and Jack Bowley breaking the highest seventh wicket partnership this has been a vintage year for batting.
