Important announcement

On September 2nd Mount will be taking part in the David Skinner memorial 7-a-side tournament which takes place at Lurgashall Cricket Club which is between Guildford and Horsham. The tournament is, as the name suggests, in memory of David who was a former Mount player and President and raises funds for the Lords Taverners. The tournament commences at about 10.30 although by arrangement Mounts first game is at 11.30am. There will be a number of teams involved and they will play each other in a 'round robin'. Any Mount members who wish to participate will be welcome. The number of players participating will decide the number of games each individual can participate in. The cost of the day is approx £15.00 per head to include tea.

If you would like to take part please let me know as early as possible so that I can pass the names to David Thomas who will be organising as I will be on holiday that week.

Availabilities: Mount vs Rayleigh, Sunday 19th August 2007, 1330 start

As I was away for the weekend I do not have many indications of availability for this coming weekend . This is our last home game of the season and as you will note from the heading it is a 1.30pm start.

Please can you let me know if you are available for thi game.

Also if there are any volunteers to organise tea, I would be delighted to hear from you.

I have been asked to point out that a number of players left immediately after the game yesterday without settling match fees and the captain had to pay the opposition for teas from the limited resources which he had.

Please do help out by proffering cash before you depart.

Match Result: Mount vs Westcliff
Westcliff: 228/7 - G Cox 4/41
Mount: 214ao - G Williams 61, I Frankel 42

An enjoyable game played in the hottest conditions so far this season. Resulted in a narrow loss. It looked as though we were on course for a win whilst Ged and Ilan were together but with their dismissals we collapsed to the spin of John Pratt and finally lost to the penultimate ball of the match.
