Match Report - Southern Electric Premier League Div 2 - 29th May 04
Gosport v Lymington by Tony Wharton

Gosport 187 for 9
Lymington 189 for 1
Lymington won by 9 wickets

Lymington captain Danny Peacock won the toss and elected to bowl due to the rain clouds around. Gosport started brightly against the Lymington opening bowling attack of Mike West (4 overs 0 for 14) and Christian Pain the latter having difficulty with line and length being replaced by Aussie Karl Whatham after 2 overs. The Gosport Aussie Ryan Hale (82) with his long hair in a pony-tail resembling a fair haired David Seaman struck the ball extremely well but the introduction of spin produced the first wicket by Danny Peacock with the score at 47 in the 12th over. Gosport lost further wickets and the Lymington Aussie then captured the wicket of the Gosport Aussie at 154 in the 35th over and the Gosport run rate dropped with Glyn Treagus (12 overs 0 for 39) and Danny Peacock (12 overs 3 for 28) keeping a tight rein. The return of Christian Pain (12 overs 2 for 47) and Karl Whatham (12 overs 4 for 43) demolished the Gosport tail and they finished on 187 for 9 after 50 overs. Former Lymington colt Adie Hunt took a good catch and 2 catches for new wicket-keeper Scott Sivier who is settling in well. The overall fielding of the side was very good benefiting from the practice by 1st team coach Dave Gelling.

In reply Martin Hunt (49) and Glyn Treagus batted with caution and both recovering their form however the former looking good was unfortunately dismissed with the score on 108 in the 31st over. Lymington without further loss easily passed the Gosport total in the 45th over with Glyn Treagus 63 not out and Karl Whatham 46 not out. After 3 matches undefeated Lymington are on top of Division 2 along with Hursley Park who they play in 2 weeks.

BEST OF WEEK

Glyn Treagus 63 not out
Karl Whatham 4 for 43.
