April 2013 News

Availability: May

After a less than impressive effort this week, can you please advise your availability for this Sunday's first home game and future games in May if you have not already done so. There are some players I have heard nothing from so please let me know if you will be playing.

Cancellation: Mount vs Wrotham, Sunday 28th April 2013 @ Wrotham. 1430 Start

Regrettably, due to insufficient numbers, we are unable to fulfil the match at Wrotham. This is a very disappointing start.

We expect to host a nets session at Alleyn Court at 5pm Sunday.

If you have not advised availability for future games, please do so.

Availability: Mount vs Wrotham, Sunday 28th April 2013 @ Wrotham. 1430 Start

Good net session yesterday, thanks to those who attended.

Please provide your availability for the first fixture next Sunday and for the next month's games. So far I have received few positive responses for availability to the first fixture. Please let's get the season off to a good start and get 11 players out.

If you know of new players please send me their details.

Mount CC 2013 Season Kick-off

Another season approaches, and no doubt you have all been training in readiness....

If not, we intend to have a nets session at Alleyn Court on Sunday at 5pm, weather permitting, in preparation for our first game on Sunday 28th April vs Wrotham (a), with warm down afterwards in the Angel.

On the subject of availability, I have attached the fixtures. Please advise your availability for the first month's games asap.

Housekeeping matters:

We are always on the look out for new members, whether they would like to play regularly or infrequently. I have included two new recruits to the distribution, Mick Maddocks (who comes highly recommended by Chris Sutherby!) and Max Richards (via Richard Hair). Welcome both, please come along to the nets or to a game so you can gauge your level (!!!). We hope to see plenty of you in the forthcoming season.

If you are aware of any others who wish to play, please let me know so I can add them to the list. Conversely, if there is anyone on the distribution who no longer wishes to receive Mount details, please advise and I will remove you.

Good luck to Bill Foley as he attempts the London Marathon this weekend. Bill, if you make it back in time, please note the start time of nets! Or more likely, meeting in the Angel afterwards! Please note Bill's sponsorship request from, an earlier email.

Best wishes to Chris Sutherby who undergoes another back op and will be out of action for a few weeks. Get well soon Suthers!

If you have not already advised, please speak to David Thomas regarding this year's Somerset Tour (28 July - 2 August). If it was anything like last year, ie the only hot week of summer, yoiu will have a great time.

That's it. Welcome back, let's hope for more seasonal weather than last year and we actually get some cricket played!
