Lymington Under 15 League Champions

The New Forest Colts League play-offs at Wellow CC for the under 15's was between the South and North League Champions. Lymington won the toss and skipper Will Thorp elected to bat.

Openers Will Thorp (1) and Elliott Lindsay-Wood (40 retired) were soon parted when Will was caught behind trying to cut. Tom Hayward (20) batted well with 4 lovely struck boundaries and James Winderam (5) and Jonathan Marsh (2) were both caught. Elliott continued on playing his best knock of the season striking 8 boundaries before retiring on the obligatory 40 limit. Mac Duncan (37 not out) hit 4 late boundaries and 2 sixes and with Sam Tombs (2 not out) Lymington finished on 128 for 4.

In reply Hyde started well against Will Thorp (3 overs 0 for 11) and Elliott Lindsay-Wood (3 overs 0 for 11) backed up by Jonathan Marsh (3 overs 0 for 6) but the introduction of spin bowler Tom Hayward (4 overs 4 for 20) created the breakthrough. James Winderam (3 overs 3 for 30) who also made a run out with a long direct throw and Jakob Leigh (1.3 overs 1 for 4) picked up more wickets. Elliott Lindsay-Wood also took 3 catches including one exceptional high one. Hyde CC finished well short on 80 for 7 so Lymington picked up the New Forest Colts Cricket Association Under 15 League championship and Elliott Lindsay-Wood was named man of the match for his batting, bowling and catching.

After the awards Manager Tony Wharton presented an Ashes book signed by the Under 15 players to Jill Lindsay-Wood for all her help during the season and a set of coloured pens to John Winderam for his scoring and the match ball to Trevor Phillips for his help with the coaching. Tony Thorp was thanked for his help as well.
