Away versus Cheesewring CC 31st July 14:00

Following our disappointment last week when the opposition failed to raise a team we are in the same position this week.  After late withdrawals and lack of response to phone calls etc,  we find ourselves still needing 3 players for our match at Upton Cross on Sunday.

If anyone reading this wishes to play, or indeed knows someone else who may like a game, please don’t hesitate to give me a ring on  07812 609512.

It is disappointing and annoying being let down by an opposition, when we have a home game and people have given up their free time to prepare the ground, make the teas etc.

It is not a position I want to be in personally or as the representative of our cricket club. However unfortunately I will be, and we will be ones to let the opposition down this week.

Thanks Andrew

 

 

The New Inn

Fans of The New Inn maybe disappointed, it has recently been refurbished to include a roof terrace, a very neutral colour scheme and parque flooring.

The traditional boozer styling has gone, along with ale casks behind the bar and nearly all of the pub games.

However the toilets have been greatly improved and have benefitted from a bright selection of glossy tiles.

On the 6th May 2007 Mount Edgcumbe played against Cheesewring CC at Upton Cross.

Batting first we set a then club record score of 271-1.  John Fearon carried his bat to score 114*, his maiden century.  He opened with Steve Boyd (62) in a first wicket partnership of 105.  Martin Moore joined John to score 59* and help post a record second wicket partnership of 166*, which was also the all-time highest score for any wicket.

This may have been the only instance ever of an innings featuring two century partnerships or  an innings  where all three batsmen scored half centuries.
