We close out our season with the Tri-Series tournament vs Old Westcliffians and WOSCC. The three teams will do battle for The Nick Clough Cup at The Ground of Legends where greats such as Larwood, Bailey, Gooch, Montellier and many others including my dog Basil have taken the field.
Mount have a strong side and are optimistic of retaining the trophy they took off OW last year. However, two-time winners, Old Westcliffians, in an effort to regain the treasured silverware, appear to have widened their net and qualifying criteria to include anyone who did at some point attend a school. Any school. Anywhere.
WOSCC are great competitors and will no doubt come to win, but are short of players – maybe they thought it was six-a-side again. Anyway, the other teams will no doubt help them out. Some inter-team transfers may be necessary so, despite our numerical strength, any other available players will be welcomed with open arms and, more importantly, an open bar at WOSCC. If you are available, please let me know.
The following are all selected and will, barring injury, all play on Sunday.

Players to be at the ground by 11.30, earlier if possible so we can get underway asap – light may not be on our side later in the day.
There will be a BBQ running from around the conclusion of game 1 and the bar will be open all day. Players’ families, friends and supporters are most welcome for what should be a great day to close out a great season.
I look forward to seeing you then.
