New Forest Colts Cricket Association - Under 15s CUP

OT's & Romsey 124 for 4 - Lymington 95 all out

Lymington lost by 29 runs

On a glorious evening at the picturesque Sports Ground the wicket looked an excellently prepared strip and the opposition although losing the toss and being inserted made the most of it. Will Thorp ( 4 overs 0 for 31) including 19 in one over and Elliot Lindsay-Wood (4 overs 1 for 15) bowling his best spell of the season and not one wide. Jonathan Marsh (4 overs 1 for 21) and bowling exceptionally well spinner Tom Hayward ( 4 overs 2 for 8) then took wickets after Steve Smith (42 retired) and Phil Hughes (40 retired) had taken the score to 97 with the loss of one wicket. Aidan Lindsay-Wood (1 over 0 for 13) and George Hayward (1 over 0 for 9) were unable to get further wickets and the opposition finished on 124 for 4 after 18 overs a run rate of 7 per over.

Needing a good start Will Thorp (2) was bowled and although Elliot Lindsay-Wood (19) and Tom Hayward (16) batted well they were unable to get the run rate up to the required rate. Jonathan Marsh (24) was also unable to increase the impetus and Sam Tombs (2), Aidan Lindsay-Wood(3), Charlie Kinsella (0) and George Hayward (6) all perished in the run chase. With Jakob Leigh (0 not out) and Tom Hill (4 not out) the Lymington reply finished 29 runs short. OT's and Romsey move into the semis to play Hyde.
