On a nice sunny morning Lymington won the toss and batted first with captain Tim Noble (11) and Stuart Beveridge (40 not out) opening with the former being well caught in the gully. Tom Thorp (35) also batted well putting on a good partnership with Stuart Beveridge who retired on reaching 40. Scott Tapper ( 6 not out) striking the ball well took the final score to 132 for 1 in the 18 overs.
Although opening bowler Elliott Lindsay-Wood retired with a sore heel Hythe & Dibden struggled against the tight bowling of Scott Tapper ( 4 overs 1 for 1) which included 3 maidens and Stuart Beveridge (4 overs 0 for 4). The other bowlers all bowled well Tom Hill (2 overs 0 for 14), James Winderam (2 overs 0 for 7), Dan Walters (3 overs 0 for 22) and Tim Noble (2 overs 0 for 17).
A convincing win for Lymington with Mr Winderam being scorer for the first time ever and hopefully not the last. It is very encouraging when parents help with the various jobs involved with running a colts team and much appreciated by the club.
