Match report

Mount vs Westcliff
Westcliff: 223/4 - T Hair 2/31
Mount 218ao - Frankel 73, Jackson 66, Garcia 50

A valiant effort in chasing down the Westcliff total which was dominated by their overseas player who scored a quick century before retiring. In reply we made a bright start with Ilan and Simon putting on 126 for the first wicket but once Ilan had departed wickets tumbled steadily and we declined to 186-8 before some entertaining hitting from Hilton Garcia took him to his first half century for Mount and the total to within 5 runs of Westcliff before we were finally dismissed.

Please remember that the Presidents Match is on June 21st and we would like to have as many Mount members/players as possible in attendance on this day. Please let me know if you are available to play or support in any way.

Thank you

With the cancellation of the two previous games this is still our first home game so if as many as possible can turn up early to help prepare it would be greatly appreciated!!

March report

Once again nothing to report on but hopefully next week I will be able to amuse you with some witty comments!!

Bob Palmer; Tuesday, May 12th, 2009 @ 1128

Addendum to the recent cancellations

My memory does not go back as far as some but we have played both Wenden and Raphael for many years and this is, as far as I remember, the first time either have called off. I very much hope Westcliff will not do the same next week!!

Please remember that Eton House OB are organising the tea on Southchurch Lawn on 24th.

News about a re-arranged fixture for Sunday 10th May 2009

With the help of Stewart I have contacted a couple of clubs who were shown on the Essex league website as seeking a fixture or this coming Sunday but to no avail.

Regretably I therefore have to advise you that we do not have a game on Sunday.

If you can let me know in due course if you are available for the 17th which as we are playing Westcliff, should go ahead, I would be grateful

Cancellation: Mount vs Raphael, Sunday 10th May 2009

I am very sorry to have to advise you that our scheduled opponents Raphael have just cried off as they are unable to raise a side so, as things stand at the moment we again have no fixture this weekend.

If there is any chance of getting another fixture I will of course advise you.

Having spent the week putting a team together, with the help of David and Mark, and finally coming up with 11 this morning. I was not particularly amused to hear the news and I imaging that those of you who were down to play will likely share my sentiments
