Nick Clough

Members and friends of Mount CC will be saddened by the news that Nick Clough died yesterday.

He was a former Captain of the Club, back in the Seventies. After he moved out of the area he kept in close touch, attending the President's Match and others. For many years he was a tourist to Somerset, where his umpiring was much appreciated.

On a personal level, I enjoyed playing for a very good Westcliff 'A' Xl under his captaincy 35 years ago. On one occasion he declared after 2 1/4 hours, giving the oppo 3 hours to get our total of about 200 and us 3 hours to take 10 wickets. They didn't. We did.

I will send more news when I receive it.
