We have some new players, Ben Slack played in the Presidents game and I am grateful to him for recruiting his father and a friend of his father to play on Sunday. Richard Thomson has also come into the side and I am now just awaiting for Mr Nother to confirm that he will be there on Sunday.

Match report: Mount vs Tllingham

Mount: 219ao - T Hair 65
Tillingham: 220/6 - Hart 3/32

Mount batted first and posted a reasonable score thanks to mainly to Terence but with useful contributions from a number of others (in fact most others with the notable exception of myself!) When Terence and Paul hart removed both openers in the first two overs without a run on the board it seemed that we might be in with a shout but sadly the next few batsmen had other ideas and gradually our thoughts of a win turned to thoughts of a winning draw, then to thoughts of hanging on for a draw before sadly turning into a loss with three balls of the match remaining and their number 3 hitting an unbeaten century.

It has to be said however that we fought to the end with David Hewitt taking a fantastic one handed catch in the covers in the last over as Tillingham searched for the winning run.

A most enjoyable and hard fought game

Match report: Mount vs President's XI (or however many)

President's XI: 163ao - Palmer 2/11, Thomas 2/24, Jones 2/41
Mount: 165/5 - Jones 67no T. Hair 44
Mount won by 5 or so wickets

A most enjoyable game played in glorious sunshine, The Pres's team batted well but lost wickets at regular intervals and were eventually all out for 163. In reply Mount lost a 3 early wickets but a very good partnership between Ed Jones, playing his first game for a year, and Terence took us to the brink of victory.

The match was followed by a splendid curry and luscious desserts supplied by Michelle and her team from the school. Our thanks and appreciation go to them.
