The new season is almost upon us and kicks off with the ever popular tri-series Nick Clough Cup. Please can you let me know as soon as possible if you are available for this fixture.
A bit of housekeeping bits before the start of the season.
There will be fixture cards available on the first day of the new season, but if you would like to review the full fixture list now please check the Mount website. On this point I'd like to extend a big thanks to Clarissa for updating the site and adding in even more stats and information to enjoy!
Subs and Match Fees
In reference to Clive's email earlier in month, I'd like to remind you that the subs and match fee structure has been updated for the 2017 season. There is a preferential monthly payment scheme in place which I urge you to join. If you want more information or bank account details, please contact me or Clive at any time.
Cricket gear and sponsorship
I'd also like to remind you that you can find our team shirts and a range of other Mount CC branded gear by clicking on the team store link.
I'm also pleased to advise that our sponsorship deal with 11 Plus Pod is now in place and that the committee has decided that, for the first year of the deal, the funds generated from sponsorship should benefit the team. Therefore you can receive a £10 discount on team shirts purchased at the online store by entering the code 'MountCC10' at the checkout page. This will bring the price down to just £12.99 plus delivery. The offer is limited to 1 shirt per purchase but if you wish to buy more than 1 (e.g. for you playing fathers and sons out there) the best route is to make separate purchases and contact serious sport who will then remove the additional delivery charges.
Ground and Tea Duty
Finally and apologies that this is turning into a very long email, but I also wanted to make all members aware that the responsibilities relating to ground duty on match days has been extended slightly. In addition to arriving an hour before the start to prepare the ground, we are also requesting that members on ground duty:
- Prepare the pavilion for tea by putting out the tables and chairs.
- Bring one cake to accompany the sandwiches which are being catered for tea.
- Remain after the game to help with clearing up the grounds and cleaning the pavilion before we lock up for the evening.
I wish you all the best for the forthcoming season and hope to see you down at the ACG!
