Teamsheet: Mount vs President's XI, Sunday 30th June 2019. 1300 Start.

Sunday sees us take on the President’s Pick at the ACG in what is always one of the most enjoyable days of the season and this year’s fixture promises to be no exception. The match will follow the “terrier” format with batsman batting in pairs for a fixed number of overs, run deductions for lost wickets and all the fielding side (exc wktkeepers) required to bowl. As well as tea, there will be drinks and hotdogs after the game. Start time is 1pm and the following have been selected for Mount CC (players at the ACG by 12.30 please):

  1. D. Summers (C)
  2. W. Foley
  3. J. Montellier
  4. I. Frankel
  5. G. Williams
  6. V. Vayalveettil
  7. P. McKeon
  8. P. Gray
  9. A. Lukose
  10. Y. Patel

I believe the President’s side are still a player short so if you are available please get in touch asap. All are welcome to come along but please let either myself or the President know asap if you are able to come along so that he can manage the catering requirements.

On a separate note, I hope to catch up on some outstanding match reports over the next few days.

Hope to see you on Sunday.

Fixture Change

Our planned opposition for tomorrow, Brentwood Victorians have withdrawn as they were unable to raise a side. However, our good friends at Canewdon CC, having suffered a similar fate at the hands of Rankins, have agreed to step in.

Due to illness we currently have only 10 players available for tomorrow, and with Clarissa away we also require a scorer. If you are able to help with either of these posts, please let me know asap.

Looking forward to Mount vs Canewdon 3!

Teamsheet: Mount vs Brentwood Victorians, Sunday 23rd June 2019. 1400 Start.

We took our first win of the season last Sunday in a competitive match with Canewdon. Our 241 off 40 overs proving to be just about enough as we bowled then out for 212. A good all round effort by the team but the star billing is shared between Ilan Frankel, who made a stylish 125 – his 14th Mount century - and Justin Montellier who bowled magnificently to take his first ever “5fer” returning figures of 5/40.

In other news, our very own Viking, Toby Duffin took 5 including a hattrick for the AC Aces in the mid-week league. Congrats Toby.

The team selected for Sunday’s fixture is as follows:

  1. W. Foley (c)
  2. D. Summers
  3. T. Duffin
  4. J. Montellier
  5. P. Offord
  6. I. Frankel
  7. P. Southward
  8. G. Williams
  9. V. Vayalveettil
  10. R. Green
  11. S. Johnson

Can all players aim to be at the ground by 1.30pm please.

Look forward to seeing you then.
