Teamsheet: Mount vs Old Southendians, Sunday 18th May 2014 @ Southchurch Park

Unfortunately Sunday’s game against Leigh was called off as a result of a waterlogged pitch. Somehow Suffolk did not seem to suffer as badly so my golf weekend was unaffected!

The weather for this Sunday looks much improved so you may need your sun cream!

I am delighted to report that we have another excellent side available for our first away game. Just in case anyone needs reminding, Old Southendians play at Southchurch Park. Use the Northumberland Crescent entrance and the main car park, then walk across the pitch to the pavilion at the southern end of the pitch.

The following have been selected:

  1. Ilan Frankel
  2. Simon Jackson
  3. Bob Palmer
  4. Alex Heighington
  5. Ged Williams
  6. Paul Southward
  7. Noel Smith
  8. Andrew Hair
  9. Jim Stewart
  10. Clive Lambert
  11. David Thomas

Umpire: Stewart Orrock

Please call Ilan or I as soon as possible if you are unable to play and we will endeavour to arrange Mr A N Other.

Please don’t forget that any of you lurking in the background are very welcome to come to the game and maybe please consider make yourselves available for games in the future.

Many congratulations to our new captain for his 100% success after a very good win on Sunday.

Equal congratulations to Noel for an excellent unbeaten hundred.

Cricket Teas

To all the Mount cricket wives, girlfriends, mothers... in other words, the important people!

Sending out an SOS for help with the teas this year. There have been quite a few volunteers to help this year already. The following list is all the home fixture dates and who will be doing tea on those days:

MAY:
11th May – Helen
25th May – Eton House tea

JUNE:
08th June – Anita (JWT Wilcox XI)
15th June – Simone
22nd June – Helen
29th June – Sue

JULY:
06th July – Helen
13th July – Simone
20th July – Anita (Presidents day match)

AUGUST: 17th August – Helen
24th August – Children’s tea!

As you can see the main bulk of the teas have been allocated but we are asking for cake donations from everybody to help out.

If you feel you could make/buy a cake for any of the dates above then please text me or let me know this Sunday and I will let the person doing tea on that day know.

Of course if anyone would like to do a tea I am sure we can accommodate this!

I was thinking that for the last home game of the season we could hand this over to all the children and they could bake the cakes and run the tea for everyone – I know Josh and Ruby would like this?! – let me know what you think?

Looking forward to lots of sunny afternoons and catching up with everybody, watching the men hard at work out on the field!
