Availabilities: Mount vs Tillingham, Sunday 6th July 2014

Please can you advise me of your availability for the game this Sunday the 6th of July at home against Tillingham.

If you can't play, but are around on Sunday afternoon, please drop down to the ground to enjoy an extended birthday tea as Jamie Lambert and I both celebrate birthdays this week. Needless to say you can also enjoy some quality cricket at the same time.

I'd also like to remind you that the President's game is approaching soon (July 20th) and we are trying to pull together some well matched sides for the day. If you are available for this game, please can you let me know as far in advance as possible.

Teamsheet: Mount vs J.W.T. Wilcox XI, Sunday 8th June 2014

Sunday looks all set to be a very enjoyable day. We have an excellent 11 selected to play against the John Wilcox XI.

As you will probably know the school are having a large celebration on Sunday, centred around the walled garden, starting at 12.00. I suggest you try to arrive early as parking may be interesting.

The following are selected:

  1. Bill Foley (Captain)
  2. Simon Jackson
  3. Andrew Hair
  4. Clive Lambert
  5. Jamie Lambert
  6. Jim Stewart
  7. Alex Heighington
  8. Finlay MacKay
  9. David Mackay
  10. Harry Slack
  11. Lewis Groves

On standby and probably playing for John will be Bob Palmer and Richard Hair.

I understand there may be a pre-game photo-shoot so please bring your smartest kit!

Please note the start time of 2.30, not 2.00 as on the fixture card.

Guests and spectators are, as always, very welcome.

Availabilities: Mount vs J.W.T. Wilcox XI, Sunday 8th June 2014. 1430 Start.

Hi all,

Our first game against Belhus (after about 5 years of trying to complete the fixture) was a success and it was a really enjoyable place to play cricket. This was helped by contributions from the whole team, particularly the bowlers who kept the opposition tied down after we lost the toss and were asked to bowl first. After being set 200 to win from 40 overs, Noel and Simon got off to a flying start and we managed to wrap up an early victory for the loss of 5 wickets. Noel finished with 125 n.o and Simon made 43.

Please can you confirm your availability for the game this Sunday. We have lost some players to John's team and there are some Alleyn Court staff members who are involved in the anniversary celebrations and so unable to play. So I have a feeling that we will struggle for numbers this weekend.

Lastly, our trusted treasurer and asked me to include the following message this week:

Dear All,

Please can those who did not sign up for the “Monthly” scheme please let me have their yearly subs soonest. You can send cheques to me, or see me on Sunday, or pay automatically into the Club’s account (details on request).

Subs this year are £40 for adults and £15 for U16’s/Students.

As always I would be more than happy to welcome "contributions" from non playing members and supporters, and would like to take this opportunity to thank those who have already made this generous gesture. Every penny helps to secure the continued future of the Club in the face of rising costs.

Yours, Clive Lambert (Treasurer)
