Match Report

XL Club v the Over 40s - 18th July 04


Side Batting First: Lymington Over-40's 304 for 1
Side Batting Second: XL Club 263 for 7

Lymington's promising Colt's policy was put on the back burner as the elder statesmen of the club endeavoured to roll back the years in this Over-40's fixture. If any of the XL Club were feeling their age before taking to the field, they certainly were 41 overs later after they had extracted only one wicket at the fairly hefty price of 304 runs. The only wicket to fall was that of Jerry Holt (60) shortly after the hundred partnership had been posted. The last 19 overs saw an average of more than 10 runs an over as Dave Griffiths (124no) and Mark Jackson (99no) kept up the onslaught. Despite a quick early response from N Dugdale (36) and Luigi Di Maria (41), the introduction of Tim Hunter (2-35) soothed any fears of such an imposing total being overhauled. Despite mid-order resistance from Steve Coltman (46) and J Davies (65), Roy Bennett (2-40) took wickets near the end saw the visiting Over-40's ironically falling just over 40 runs short.

BEST OF THE WEEK:
D Griffiths (Lymington) 124no
M Jackson (Lymington) 99no
J Holt (Lymington) 60
