2 Lymington Colts steer Lymington to victory by 1 wicket


16 year old Tom Thorp making his first team debut and 17 year old Lloyd Scott were the heroes in Lymington CC's 1 wicket win over Havant II CC at the Sports Ground. In a thrilling and enthralling tense finish Lloyd joined Tom to score the required 7 runs with 3 balls to spare much to the delight of their watching team mates and supporters.

Earlier Havant had scored 156 all out and bowling for Lymington Lloyd Scott (11.1 overs 2 for 37) and Trevor Phillips ( 12 overs 2 for 34) kept the run rate down and made an initial breakthrough in the 6th over and Mark Burrett ( 11 overs 2 for 34) picked up a wicket in his 2nd over. At 109 for 3 in the 35th over Havant looked set for a score of over 200 but Lymington's new overseas player Zimbabwean Keith Dabengwa making his debut picked up a wicket with his 4th ball.and bowled 12 overs 2 for 28 of left arm spin. Martin Hunt (2 overs 1 for 7) and Lloyd Scott and Mark Burrett finished off the tail restricting Havant to 156 all out from 48.1 overs.

In reply Lymington were soon in trouble at 45 for 5 in the 17th over with only previous match top scorer Dan Wiggins (17) reaching double figures but veteran Neil Trestrail (12) and Martin Hunt (38) repaired the damage and put on 40 for the 6th wicket before the former was bowled in the 31st over. Mark Newton (17) batted sensibly before Martin Hunt was well caught on the midwicket boundary having batted really well including 2 well struck 6's over long on. At 112 for 7 with 12 overs remaining and 45 runs still needed young Tom Thorp came in to make his first team debut and immediately settled in and although losing Mark Newton shortly after in came the experienced Trevor Phillips (12) who helped him take the score to 150 before he was out. This left young Lloyd Scott (3 not out) to weather the storm and help Tom Thorp (27 not out) to score the required 7 runs.
