Stakerchurch: Parish Council to Consider Renaming Proposal

After scoring 50+ with the bat, taking 5 wickets with the ball and buying a round of drinks, the Parish Council are considering a proposal to commemorate John Staker’s deeds with an extra day’s holiday next week and renaming the village ‘Stakerchurch’.

Batting first, and struggling to get anything to the boundary, Whitchurch looked like getting a below-par score when JS went out to bat at No. 5.  A quick 60, ably supported by Nick Turner and Paul Higgs, ensured a competitive 179.

After tea, with Sonning Common keeping up with the run rate and their opener looking good, JS came on as fourth-change (where have heard this before??).  5 wickets, this time with support from Floody and Scooby, ensured a comfortable victory by 9 runs with 7 balls remaining.

The Parish Council turned down the idea of a street party saying it was ‘a ridiculous idea’.
