Match Report - Sunday Friendly - 29th May 05
Lymington v Bexley Park

Lymington 195 for 8 - Bexley Park 162 for 9

Lymington made a cautious start to their innings but, after a moist May, many of the batsmen were simply glad of some time in the middle. Tom Thorp (21) took such advantage, but it was Mark Jackson (75) who dominated the partnership, before P Hewagama (6-50) removed both. Late runs were added by Adie Hunt (26no) but Lymington were left concerned that they may not have scored sufficient runs.

Such concerns were proved to be unduly founded as Ed Molloy (1-13) and Adie Hunt (3-20) took early wickets. Lymington never lost control from this point, and Dan Waters (3-44) again picked up middle order wickets. Bexley Park rallied with some late defiance, but a wicket off the penultimate ball, left the last man needing to survive one ball – which was successfully negotiated - to hang on to the draw.

BEST OF THE WEEK: M Jackson (Lymington) 75

Mark Gannaway
