Match Report - First XI - 1 Jul 06
Southern Electric Premier Cricket League Division 2


Trojans 262 for 7 v Lymington 201 for 9
Lymington lost by 61 runs

Early wickets spelt trouble for Lymo

The Sports Ground at Lymington looked a perfect cricket setting in the hot sunshine and the pitch looked a batting paradise. However when Lymington captain Adie Hunt won the toss he elected to bat feeling that his team were better at chasing runs than setting a target. Unfortunately the opening bowlers Lloyd Scott (11 overs 2 for 55) and Trevor Phillips (7 overs 2 maidens 0 for 22) were unable to make a breakthrough and the Trojans lost their first wicket when Christian Pain (12 overs 2 for 67) had Simon Williams (68) caught behind by Mark Newton. Zimbabwean Keith Dabengwa ( 12 overs 0 for 46) was unable to take any wickets and Mark Burrett (8 overs 1 for 58) was also only able to pick up 1 wicket. Lloyd Scott came back on and picked up 2 wickets but Trojans steadily progressed to 262 for 7.

Lymo started disastrously in reply Adie Hunt (0, edged to slip), Bryn Darbyshire (0 LBW) and Dan Wiggins (0 edged to slip) all dismissed without troubling the scorers so at 4 for 3 the run chase was in immediate trouble. When Mark Burrett (7) departed at 33 it was a battle to get points. Neil Trestrail (21, run out), Keith Dabengwa (52, out hit wicket with bat!) and last weeks hero Christian Pain (54, caught in the deep) repaired the damage and it was left to Trevor Phillips (18 not out) and Lloyd Scott (4 not out) to secure more points in reaching 201 for 9 - 61 runs short of the target.

Best of Week Christian Pain 54
