Match Report - First XI - 6th Aug 05
Lymington v Havant II
Southern Electric Premier Cricket League Division 2

Lymington won by 152 runs:
Lymington 296 for 8 - Havant 144 all out

Having lost the toss Lymington were asked to bat against a depleted Havant 2nd XI. After last weeks batting troubles Lymington were looking for a solid start. They soon found themselves losing Jackson and Carter before the score had reached 30 and Lymington were once again in trouble. The returning Ian Young and Australian Pete Smith had other ideas though as they put on 171 for the 3rd wicket before Young departed for a well made 63. Smith soon followed him but only after completing his 3rd league century of the season in the usual brutal fashion, his 108 coming from only 87 balls. With Darbyshire, M Hunt and Pain all adding useful runs Lymington reached 296 for 8 from their alloted 48 overs.

Faced with a large target to chase Havant made the worst possible start with Lloyd Scott taking 2 wickets in his impressive 6 over spell. With Christian Pain also taking 3-34 from his 12 overs Havant never really threatened Lymingtons total. Scott returned to finish his overs and gained another wicket to finish with 3-33 and Trevor Phillips came on to finish the innings off with 2 wickets to give Lymington a much needed win in their battle against relegation.
