If there are others who have not advised they are available please feel free to turn up on Sunday in any case.

Last week's game at Farningham was called off as they could not field a side (we were struggling) but in view of the weather I doubt if we would have played anyway.

Better luck this week.

Availabilities: Mount vs Alleyn Court, Sunday 3rd June 2007

I am now back from China and resuming my team secretary duties.

Can you please let me know if you are or are not available for this coming Sunday 3rd June at home to Alleyn Court.

I have had some indications, for which many thanks, but please let me know if you haven't already done so.

Many thanks.

Cancellation: Mount vs Farningham, Sunday 27th May 2007 @ Farningham

Unfortunately - and same may say luckily due to lack of numbers on our behalf - Farningham have cried off due to the fact they have a christening on Sunday and a cup match which will leaves them with not enough players for Sunday's game.

As we don't have great numbers this week we will not be rearranging a game for Sunday, so you can all go and enjoy your bank holiday weekend and I hope to see you for next week's home game against Alleyn Court.

Please could you get in touch with Bob Palmer about availabilities for next week.

All the best.

I'm having the same problem with numbers this week as I was last week.

The main problem I'm finding with contacting people is that not many reply to the e-mails sent out and I don't have that many telephone numbers to get in touch with you all to talk about availabilities.

Therefore I hope you will have all read the e-mail Richard Hair sent round about contact details and hopefully this will stop our shortage of players.

Match Result: Mount vs Raphael
Game call off after 4 overs due to bad weather

A victory at last. An enterprising partnership between the two Simons saw Mount reach a useful total in very warm conditions before Messrs Eden, Hair and Thomas exposed the demons in the wicket aided by some superb catching from the captain who held on to three saw us to our first win of the season. Now we are on a roll, watch out Westcliff...

Hi guys,

Hope you're all well, unfortunately our game was called off at the weekend after just four overs of play and we only lost one wicket in that time which is an improvement!

I've only got six players so far for this weeks game, so could I please have your availability for the next two weeks, which will be 20th May away to Great Waltham and 27th May away to Farningham and if there is anyone who you know that would like a one off game or to become a new member please let me know there details and I will get in touch with them.

This well be a great help to me.
Many thanks.

Match summary: Mount vs Wendon
Wenden: 143 ao - B. Palmer 4/27, S. Jackson 2/22
Mount: 129ao - S. Orrock 30
Lost by 14 runs

A low scoring game on a tricky batting wicket with uneven bounce with players from both sides being dismissed by balls which scuttled along the ground . 'Extras' was in fact the highest scorer for us. At least the fielding seemed to be an improvement with a number of catches being held, two by Stewart, and Ged running out one of the opposition with a direct hit from the boundary.
