Availabilities: Mount vs Tillingham, Sunday 5th July 2015

Another great game yesterday, which we won comfortably after a bit of a rocky start batting first.

Big congratulations to David Jackson for getting a wicket in his first over of adult cricket!

Please can you send me your availability for the next fixture this Sunday. It’s a home game against Tillingham starting at 14:00.

Another exciting game yesterday – I thought that we all batted, bowled and caught really well and thoroughly deserved our victory against Rankins!

Please can you send me your availability for the game this Sunday at home against Canewdon.

Also, if you haven’t done so already, please can you let me know if you are available for the President’s game on Sunday the 19th of July. We need to try and sort out numbers for this game as soon as possible.

Cancellation: Mount vs Old Southendians, Sunday June 14th 2015

Regretfully we have received notification from OS&S that they are unable to raise a side for the game on Sunday. There is little opportunity of getting an alternative fixture at this late stage, so we have taken the decision to call off the game this weekend. Let’s hope that this is the last one!

If there are enough people who are keen we could hold a net session on Sunday afternoon.

Lastly, please could someone at the school let Jerry know that we don’t need a pitch prepared for this weekend.

Availabilities: Mount vs Old Southendians, Sunday 14th June 2015

If you haven’t already, please can you confirm your availability for the game this Sunday. We’re still looking for 6 for this weekend, so if you know anyone that would like a game please let me know asap.

Also there is not going to be a net session tonight.

Please can you confirm your availability for our next game, which is a home fixture against OS&S this Sunday starting at 14:00.

In addition our president has asked if you can give us confirmation of your availability for the Presidents fixture on the 19th of July.
