Because of injuries and business commitments there have been a few changes to the team. We have some new players, Ben Slack played in the Presidents game and I am grateful to him for recruiting his father and a friend of his father to play on Sunday. Richard Thomson has also come into the side and I am now just awaiting for Mr Nother to confirm that he will be there on Sunday.
I have also had to revise those on ground duty and I apologise to you for picking on you again.
I just hope that the weather is fine!!
The following have been selected
- Simon Jackson (Ground)
- Ilan Frankel (Ground)

I am still seeking one more so if you are available, not on the list and would like to play please let me know!!
Umpire: Stewart Orrock
Scorer; Clarissa Clement
Match report: Mount vs Tllingham
Mount: 219ao - T Hair 65
Tillingham: 220/6 - Hart 3/32
Mount batted first and posted a reasonable score thanks to mainly to Terence but with useful contributions from a number of others (in fact most others with the notable exception of myself!) When Terence and Paul hart removed both openers in the first two overs without a run on the board it seemed that we might be in with a shout but sadly the next few batsmen had other ideas and gradually our thoughts of a win turned to thoughts of a winning draw, then to thoughts of hanging on for a draw before sadly turning into a loss with three balls of the match remaining and their number 3 hitting an unbeaten century.
It has to be said however that we fought to the end with David Hewitt taking a fantastic one handed catch in the covers in the last over as Tillingham searched for the winning run.
A most enjoyable and hard fought game
