Cancellation: Mount vs Tillingham, Sunday 30th May 2010 @ Tillingham, 1400 Start

The curse of the bank holiday has struck again. We only have 6 available for this coming weekend and so we have advised Tillingham that we have to cry off.

I am sorry for those who were available but I am afraid there is nothing more I can do!

Please let me know if you can play the following week, the 6th June at home to Manningtree.

We have not played them, to my knowledge, before so I would like to be able to put out a full team.

Have a good weekend.

Sady the rain arrived and spoilt what was looking likely to be a Mount victory. However an enjoyable if damp afternoon.

As this is the first home game of the season there will be a number of things to be done so it would be appreciated if you could turn up as early as possible to assist.

Does anyone know what happened to the stumps at the end of last season. No one seems to have them.

The Treasurer would like to remind members that the anuual subscription (£35.00) is due and he would be grateful for any payments.

My apologies to all those who were led astray by the directions to Hutton's ground. These came from the Hutton website. I am sure that the good people of Mills Way must be thrilled by the number of cars that visit their cul de sac!

As far as the match was concerned, perhaps it would have been better if we had stayed in the cul de sac. It was cold and dark, two of their players made 100's we dropped a load of catches and didn't get enough runs. I don't have the full details but the above is a good summary!
