Dear Mount Member
Mount have once again been invited to participate in the David Skinner Memorial 7-a-side tournament to be held on SATURDAY September 13th at ELSTED near Midhurst in Sussex.
David was a past President and fine player for Mount before moving away and would regularly return to participate in the Mount President's matches where many of you will have met him.
Sadly, David suffered a heart attack and died whilst supporting England on their last tour to the West Indies. In addition to playing, David was an active supporter of the Lords Taverners and helped raise many thousands of pounds for this very worthwhile charity.
The memorial tournament is now held each year featuring cricket teams with whom David had an association over the years to continue to raise funds for the Lords Taverners. As one of these teams, Mount have been invited and we would like to continue our association with the tournament.
I would be very grateful if you could let me know as soon as possible if you would be able to participate. The tournament commences at about 10.30 and runs throughout the day with the invited teams of 7 a side playing against each other. We need to take a squad of more than 7 as it can be quite tiring for those of us of advancing years.
The cost of the day is £15.00 per player but this includes a commemorative shirt, an all day barbecue and tea.
Please do let me know as soon as possible if you are able to. and would like to, participate in this very worthwhile day.
