Match Report - Fourth XI - 4th June 05
Lymington v Pylewell

Lymington 164ao - Pylewell 168 for 5

For a brief while Lymington's batting traumas seemed to be behind them as Mark Gannaway (56) and Steve Coltman (35) posted 100 relatively untroubled runs before the drinks break. From here the game started to turn in Pylewell's favour and once enterprising knocks from Will Thorp (25) and Tom Thorp (23) were ended, the innings reached a rapid conclusion. This was largely due to the belated introduction of Simon Pallister (4-37) and Tony Hayes (4-14) as seven wickets fell for the addition of only 21 runs.

An early wicket to Will Thorp (1-38) raised hopes, and thoughts of victory may have begun to trickle across a few minds as Ronnie Hawker (2-33) took wickets in successive overs, including that of Chris Todd (37). But after proving to be a thorn in Lymington's side with his bowling, Tony Hayes was to repeat the feat with his batting. With the victory target came ever closer, Pylewell lost E Trussell (24), but Hayes (61no) was not to be thwarted and oversaw victory with a flurry of boundaries.

BEST OF THE WEEK:
M Gannaway (Lymington) 56
T Hayes (Pylewell) 61no
