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.
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.
Rear (l to r): Chris Burton, Richard Elmer, Mathew Elmer, Robert De Viell (Scorer), Graham Wills, Angus Gourlay, Ben Hutson
Front (l to r): Michael (Micky) Gray, Andrew Ware, Adam Dabbs, Robert Lock, Robert Way, Sylvan Pook
We very impressively took the most wickets and lost the fewest, and finished In a creditable 3rd place and therefore just avoided promotion.
Despite a disappointing cup run we reached the quarter finals of the shield but lost to the Division 2 winners, again.
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.

Shortly afterwards we posted a total of 267 for 7, at the time our highest total on tour. We made hay whilst the sun shone as this game was abandoned midway through the second innings due to rain. Leading contributors were Richard Ware 56, Ken Griffith 53 and Gary Murton 51. Richard scoring the seasons second fastest fifty in 32 balls.
