The Trust XI played a friendly against Graces CC at Cheam Road.

Batting first, Graces did well to reach 200, largely thanks to attacking fields set by stand in skipper, Dan Edwards. Sam Schofield, as miserly as ever, took 4 late wickets.

In reply, Joe Lunn (pictured) got off to a flyer as Sutton's youngsters made hay in the sunshine.

Lunn eventually made his maiden century for the club off just 56 balls including 17 fours and when he fell for 104 it was left to two promising batters in Dylan paskaran and Aarav Rajnikanth to see Sutton home by 6 wickets.

Sutton Ladies v Streatham & Marlborough Ladies - 12th July

While England were losing the test match at an empty ground in Southampton, a decent crowd witnessed a most entertaing ladies match at Cheam Road.

The visitors won the toss and asked Sutton to bat on a beautiful day and Aamna Ahmed hit some decent shots on her way to 18. Streatham's bowling was tight and was well supported by good fielding meaning Sutton could never really get on top. Emma Waite (16) and teenager Sofia Stapleton Parslow (9) played well and a brisk 25 (retired not out) from Carolyn Brady allowed Sutton to reach 144 for 8 off their 35 overs.

S & M's opening bowler, Beth Kerins looked as sharp and accurate as most men I had seen the previous day!!

The visitor's reply started briskly with Zarish Rehman, in particular, bearing the brunt of a batting onslaught from Izzy Marin-Cortaud (retired 25 not out) but, gradually, Sutton clawed their way back via a superb caught and bowled by Clare Daniels.

Verity Quade (15) and Emma Crandon (21) got Streatham back on top but good middle order bowling from Waite, Beth Greenhaulgh and Stapleton-Parslow fought back assisted by two run outs from Ahmed and Rehman. Rehman's second bowling spell returned a crucial 2 for 9 spell.

There were two vital catches for Aly Arzente as well.

At 99 for 10 (this was a 12 a side match, skipper Tanya Wanless (26 not out) was joined by the returning opening bat and this solid pairing got them within 4 runs before Daniels cleaned up Marin-Cortaud (42) for a hard fought home success.

We seem to always have entertaining games with Streatham and, no doubt, both sides will relish the next encounter on 2nd August I am told. A winning start for new captain Jess lewis as well.

The positive terrace comments re the continued improvement of the ladies club game can only help in further development.

Sutton 3rds v Sutton 4ths - 11th July

Steve Hall - Man of the match today

While the 1st and 2nd teams did battle at Cheam Road (the 1st XI won), Sutton's 3rd and 4th teams went head to head at Holmwood Close as cricket returned in a pleasant and rather light hearted manner.

The toss was agreed and Chat Premasinghe opted to bat first on a flat but sluggish track.

A remarkable scorecard developed once Sam Griffin (3 for 15) and Nav Nonis (2 for 14) weaved their magic to reduce the 3s to a measly 39 for 6 in the 16th over.

A fightback of sorts followed when Nepalese batter Sudhir Gurung (34) and left arm spinner Kumar Selveraj (18) added 49 but at 102 for 9, an early finish looked imminent.

Enter the late arriving birthday boy, Richard Clark (30*) and Steve Hall (33) to add 58 swashbuckling runs for the final wicket allowing a respectable 160 from 38.5 overs. Martin Gardner snared 2 wickets as well.

The reply was going well for the 4s as Aarav Rajinkanth (16) and Matt Lewis (19) put on 47 for the opening wicket in just 12 overs. However, Ali Hasan Butt (2 for 15), Kumar Selveraj (3 for 8) and Steve Hall (5 for 18) saw the innings end in the 27th over for a total of just 89!

So a 71 run win for the 3s but everyone just seemed happy to be back playing and how nice to see two Surrey Championship umpires standing at such a fixture.

NB memo for future teas when they return – tuna sandwiches with a hint of green chillies, Mmmm!
