Availabilites: Mount vs Great and Little Warley, Sunday 5th September @ Great Warley, 1300 Start

I will be away for a few days next week so I would be most grateful if you can let me know if you are available for selection for the game on September 5th if you have not already done so..

Also if you are interested in playing in the 7 a side tournament mentioned below and have not advised me, again I or David Thomas (01702 556684) would be grateful for your reply

Advance notice

Mount have again been invited to participate in the annual David Skinner Memorial 7 a side tournament to be held on SATURDAY September 11th. David was a former player and president of Mount who sadly died from heart attack a few years ago. The tournament is held annually in Sussex to raise funds for the Lords Taverners. It is a most enjoyable day. There is an entry fee of £15.00** per player which covers the cost of a team shirt and an all day BBQ.

If you would like to participate or just come along for the fun of it, please let either David Thomas or myself know

Availabilities: Mount vs Rayleight, Sunday 15th August @ 1330

Unfortunately our scheduled opposition were unaware that they were suppose to be playing yesterday and so we had no fixture. We did however have a useful net session which enabled me to practise my leave to the ball hitting the stumps...

We are scheduled to play Rayleigh this coming Sunday and I have checked on their website and they do show the fixture so we should be OK. They however have it down as a 2.00pm start whereas our fixture list says 1.30pm I will try to clarify this before sending out the team sheet.

If you have not already advised your availability please do as there is a strange phenomenon looming this week - not the new moon and start of Ramadan but a Mount selection meeting!

On a different subject, a friend of mine has 4 tickets for the Friday of the Oval teas match (20th August) which he is unable to use. The tickets cost £58.00 each but he is willing to sell at half price. If anyone is interested in all or any of these please let me know.

DT is on standby if we are short although he would prefer not to play because of the injury he received on tour so ideally I am looking for another two players. If you would like a game and have not advised me please let me know.

I am still awaiting responses from a few people to enable me to finalise the team for Sunday which I hope to be able to circulate later today.

However I can confirm that those who have indicated that they are available will be playing!!

However, for the following week, 15th August, we do not have anyone at present to prepare and organise teas.. Please can you let me know if there are any wives, girlfriends, mistresses or any combination, of the above or indeed any males who would be prepared to help out on that day.

I trust that those who toured have had a good week and those that didn't are refreshed and raring to play.

Can you let me know if you are available for this coming Sunday, at home 2.00pm start
