Aaron celebrates the wicket of Geriant Jones

England keeper's fate decided by ex-Lymo star?
If England wicketkeeper Geriant Jones fails to make the starting line-up for Thursday's Third Test in Perth, then a former Lymington player may well have played a major part in sealing the Kent keeper's fate. The cricketer in question - Aaron Heal - dismissed the oft-criticised gloveman for a golden duck in the recent tour match between the tourists and Western Australia at the WACA, and with deputy Chris Read scoring runs and taking three catches in the match, Aaron's dismissal of Jones may well have given Read the edge.

The unassuming left arm spinner who spent a highly successful season at the Sports Ground in 2002 also took the wicket of England opener Andrew Strauss, but will perhaps be best remembered in this match for being run out by a direct throw from Monty Panesar. With Panesar generally considered to be one of the worst fielders in the game, the Sky Sports News reporter at the Waca was so shocked by the run out that he described Aaron as "the unluckiest batsman in world cricket”! Aaron's early season performances for Western Australia have been receiving rave reviews Down Under, and all this despite the handicap of a very dodgy hairstyle!

Lymington's New Forest Indoor League side bounced back from their recent poor run of form to record a surprise victory over Fawley. Mind you, it took a major helping hand from ex-Lymo player Wayne Smith to end the losing streak. more

Dabs top scores, but Zim get thrashed again
Lymington's former overseas player Keith Dabengwa top scored for Zimbabwe in their latest One Day International in Bangladesh. But his 32 at the Shere Bangla Stadium in Dhaka wasn't enough to prevent Zim from slipping to a fourth straight defeat in the five match series. The hosts overhauled the African's modest 146 all out with 8 wickets and almost 18 overs to spare.

Dabengwa, who often flattered to deceive during his spell at Lymington last summer, is currently top of the Zim batting averages for the series having scored 82 runs in three innings including a not out. To highlight the depth of Zimbabwe's problems, he is also their second highest wicket taker with three.

This crushing series defeat against the second worst side in world cricket is the latest in a long line of disasters to beset Zimbabwe. Worryingly, the country that seems to lurch from one crisis to another is due to regain its Test status as early as next November.

11 Dec 06 Lymo crash out of the cup
Lymington's New Forest Indoor Cup hopes floundered at the first hurdle when they suffered a last ball defeat against Pylewell Park. The plucky underdogs scrambled a three off the last ball of the match to secure a dramatic 1 wicket victory. Tony Hayes was the unlikely hero for Pylewell, scoring an unbeaten 42 as his side chased Lymington's 126 for 3 (Simon Naylor 27no, Adam Darbyshire 25no). At least Lymington can now concentrate on the their league campaign which resumed on Sunday 10th December against Fawley.

.Here we go again….

You can almost cut the anticipation with a knife. After nearly 15 months of waiting it's finally here. No we're not talking about Wobbly Wharton's new blow-up doll, we're talking about the Ashes: the greatest contest in World sport. But can England hang on to the treasured urn or will the convicts steal it back again? We asked a few Lymington members for their expert opinions on how the series will unfold:

Adie Hunt: Australia will win it 3-1. We'll struggle to to bowl them out twice, although that's what I said in 2005! Straus will be a key player - if he can have a good series we will have a fighting chance.

Jim Lowe: 2-2, which means England retain the Ashes. 5-0 to the barmy army, all venues drunk dry, and Glenn McGrath retires to take up his new career as a clairvoyant. (like mystic meg, cant get anything right!)

Lloyd Scott: I think it will be 2-3 to the Auzzies

Mike Vimpany: Australia will win at least three, maybe four Tests. Whereas English cricket has taken a distinct down-turn since the Ashes win, Australia are massively motivated and, in addition to having a fervent, partisan following behind them, are man-for-man far superior to England, who will be vulnerable to batting collapses and lean days with the ball, particularly in the pace department. The loss of Troy Cooley as bowling coach is already being felt: quite how Kevin Shine can have been chosen as his replacement is beyond me.

Steve Scott: My predication is 2-1 to the Poms, I think the wickets will suit Freddy and Harmison.

Nick Lee: 2-1 to England because I'm an optimist and I think with my heart! I also predict that Pompey will qualify for the Champions League.

Trevor Phillips: I predicted a 3-1 loss last time and we won, so I'm plumping for 3-1 to the Aussies again! I also predict that Nick Lee is totally deluded!

Simon Naylor: I'm banking on a 2-2 draw with England retaining the ashes. We'll win in Sydney to tie the series.

Ed Molloy: I reckon Australia will win 3-1. England will struggle due to having rubbish bowlers and rubbish batsmen!

Tony Thorp: I think the Aussies will win the Ashes 3-1. In my opinion the Australian batsmen cannot collectively have such a bad time of it. England will miss bowling in English conditions and the loss of Simon Jones will prove to bigger a hole to fill. The Aussies will bat first, pile up a huge first innings total and lob the ball to Shane Warne who is still a mystery to most Englishmen! One positive note for England, Monty will cause the Aussies (and Gerriant Jones!) no end of problems.

John McGuirk: 2-1 or 3-1, but I don't know who to!

And from the other side:

Peter Smith: 4-0 to the Aussies!

Matt Bowdler: No final prediction but Australia will win at least three Tests

All predictions were before the series started, it was just published late.

Second XI saviour returns home - exclusive interview!

Aussie Matt Bowdler has returned to his Perth home after a highly successful season at Lymington.

The popular all rounder overcame the initial trauma of being turned back at Heathrow due to a visa mix-up (unbelievably, Matt didn't know he needed one!), and returned a few weeks later to inspire a struggling Lymo Second XI to safety with a series of match-winning innings. We caught up with the baby-faced Aussie at the Cartwheel public house the night before he departed for home, and we asked Matt to reflect on some of the highs and lows of his time in England.

Stalwarts missing for Trojans finale

Lymington First XI travel to Trojans for the last game of the season tomorrow without captain Adie Hunt and Trevor Phillips. The skipper will be 3000 miles away in the USA undertaking best man duties for former Lymo pace bowler Jason Carr, while veteran seamer Phillips injured his back attempting to climb Mount Ventnor last Saturday. Also missing will be quickie Tom Myatt who impressed on his one and only appearance of the season last week. Coming into the team will be Second XI saviour Martin Hunt, stand-in skipper Christian Pain and Mark Newton who could clinch the Division 2 wicketkeeping award. Keith Dabengwa will be hoping to improve on his modest haul of 269 runs and 16 wickets on his farewell appearance for the club.

Safe!

Fears of a treble relegation for Lymington's senior sides were banished on Saturday as the First and Second XIs confirmed their places in their respective divisions for next season.

The Seconds pulled off a crucial last-day victory over Flamingos at the Sports Ground. Inspired by Marty Hunt's classy 70, Lymo overhauled the visitor's 208-8 to win by 4 wickets with Tom Thorp chipping in with a vital 30. The victory lifted Lymington to fifth from bottom with Cadnam, Petersfield and Redlynch the unlucky teams to be relegated. Match report.

Some strange goings-on at Hungerford meant that Lymo First XI were virtually safe from the drop from SPL Division 2 before a ball had even been bowled at Ventnor. News filtered through that the Berkshire side had forfeited their match against Rowledge, making it nigh-on impossible for Lymo to be caught. Heartened by this stroke of good fortune, the team put in a much improved performance against the champions-elect. Tom Myatt took 3-53 as the Islanders totalled 226-7, and Lymo replied strongly through Adie Hunt (21), Keith Dabengwa (41), Bryan Darbyshire (40), Mark Burrett (43) and Trevor Phillips (28). But when the latter two both fell with the score on 195, Lymo collapsed to 203 all out with John Birchall grabbing 7 wickets. The official Southern Premier League website later confirmed that Lymington were safe from relegation and the team complete their league programme with a trip to Trojans on Saturday. Match report.

The end of the season couldn't come quick enough for the Third XI who fell to a 13th defeat of the season against Bashley at Woodside. Lymo were bowled out for 116 after their local rivals had totalled 231-4.

Sunday saw Lymington record their first victory in four attempts over Dan Peacock's Zimbabwean XI. A healthy Presidents Day crowd witnessed man-of-the-match Christian Pain take 3 wickets and then score 43 as Lymo chased the African's 190-9 to win by 3 wickets with just under 10 overs to spare. Bashley's Drew Porter notched up a fine 73 for Lymington while it was great to see Damian Shirazi back at the Sports Ground.

Presidents Day man of the match: Christian Pain

The curtain was drawn on another summer of cricket at the Sports Ground with a Bank Holiday fixture against neighbours Milford. The highlight of the match was a superb innings from Dom Di Maria who came agonisingly close to a maiden century. The stylish Italian was brilliantly caught by keeper Pete Hammet just one run short of his ton. Di Maria and Trevor Phillips (82no) had rescued Lymo from a perilous 67-5 and took the score to 249-6 at tea. With youngsters Chris James and Dan Waters grabbing wickets, Milford were all at sea before their young last pair bravely fended off everything that Will Thorp and Scott Tapper could throw at them in the final overs to earn a creditable draw.

Presidents Day

This Sunday sees the annual Presidents Day fixture between Lymington and Dan Peacock's Zimbabwean XI. Dan's team currently lead the series 3-0 but are weakened this year by the absence of Test stars Trevor Gripper and Brian Murphy, and with Lymo including Bashley's talented Drew Porter, Sunday's encounter will hopefully be rather less one-sided than the previous three.

Dan Peacock and John Hardy
John Hardy and Dan Peacock

Despite the absence of Murphy and Gripper, the former Lymington First XI skipper will still be fielding a more than useful side including Clive Chadhani who has played First Class cricket for Mashonaland, Keegan Taylor who has appeared for Manicaland, and of course Dan himself who has represented Zimbabwe A. Another familiar name is Alec Taylor who played against Lymington for Sparsholt last season and formerly attended the Zimbabwe Cricket Academy in Harare. With Lymo including their own Zimbabwean Keith Dabengwa, the Sports Ground may well resemble a little piece of Africa this Sunday.

 

The match, which commences at noon, will be preceded at 10am by a colts fixture between Lymington's highly successful Under 11A and B teams. All club members and supporters are welcome to come along to the Sports Ground to watch both matches.

24 Aug 06

Down to the wire

Those of a nervous disposition may wish to avoid the Sports Ground over the next few days as Lymington attempt to salvage something from a pretty disastrous summer. The First and Second XIs face a nailbiting end to the season with both sides in real danger of relegation. The First XI - who face a daunting trip to top-of-the-table Ventnor this Saturday - probably need a victory from one of their two remaining matches to ensure their SPL Division Two survival, although if Hungerford and Purbrook both lose their final two matches then Lymo could well be safe anyway.

Lymington could have put all these relegation worries behind them if they hadn't suffered an all too familiar batting collapse chasing Andover's modest 210 last Saturday. The top order again collapsed, and it was left to Adie Hunt - who scored a fine half-century - and Mark Burrett to glean some vital bonus points as Lymo were bowled out for 175. Earlier in the day Christian Pain had continued his good season with the ball taking 4-29. Match Report

.
Adie top scored with 54
.
Mark chipped in with 33

Meanwhile the Second XI's Hants Division 1 status is hanging by a thread. They lie one place and just a few points above the relegation places as they go into Saturday's final match of the season at home to Flamingos. A defeat, coupled with victories for Redlynch or Cadnam, would almost certainly see Lymo back in Division 2 for the first time since 1995. Like the First XI, the Seconds could have all but secured safety but for a dismal 6 wicket defeat at Cadnam last Saturday. Match Report

The Third XI complete a miserable season with a local derby against Bashley at Woodside this Saturday.

Fitting tribute for Dale

The annual Dale Middleton Memorial match at Bashley saw Lymington record a highly unlikely victory after being set a daunting target of 316 in just 40 overs. Incredibly, Lymo cruised home with an over and 6 wickets to spare on a day when batsmen from both sides took full advantage of some lacklustre bowling on a feather bed of a wicket.

In an all-too-brief cricket career Dale Middleton became highly adept at smashing the ball out of the ground with sublime ease, so it's almost certain that he would have greatly enjoyed this match which saw a barrage of sixes disappear over the BCG boundary (and in some cases beyond!). And it was one of Dale's former New Forest Colts teammates Simon King who emerged as Lymington's hero, notching up a superb century. Kinger and Keith Dabengwa (80) turned the match on it's head with a 140 run partnership before Dave Griffiths and Matt Bowdler saw Lymington home in the 39th over.

Earlier in the day, Bashley's openers had set off like a house on fire, scoring 19 off the first over of the match. This total would probably have been even greater had umpire Bob Iles not taken pity on the beleaguered Trevor Phillips and called 'over' after just 5 balls! Ben Nolan-Stone, Neil Thurgood, Neil Prince and John Ward all hit half centuries as Bash bashed the ball to all parts of the BCG. Dabengwa's 4 wicket haul edged Lymo back into the game and kept the final total down to 315-9 when a score of 400 plus had looked on the cards for a while.

Meanwhile on the adjoining pitch the two club's under 15s sides fought out another suitably enthralling encounter. Will Thorp's swashbuckling 80 helped Lymo to 180 all out before Bashley reached their target for the loss of 9 wickets thanks largely to Josh Digby's battling 60.

Following the men's match Dale's mother Sue presented commemorative medals to the players and officials, while Lymo skipper Adie Hunt thanked everyone at Bashley Cricket Club for their superb catering and organisation.

Yet more agony for Lymington

Lymington Cricket Club are beginning to know just how the Queen felt when she talked about her 'annus horriblus' a few years back. All three sides were well beaten again on Saturday, and with the Third XI already relegated, the club now faces a battle to prevent its First and Second XIs from going the same way.

The Firsts produced a woeful performance at Rowledge, letting the home side off the hook after reducing them to 41 for 3. Ricky Yates (51) led the recovery, and as several simple catches went begging, Rowledge totaled a formidable 258-9. 'Formidable' soon became 'impossible' as Lymo slumped to 27-5 before debutant Paul 'Ginge' Newton (38) and Mark Burrett (55) salvaged a little pride and helped Lymington reach 161 and gain crucial bonus points. Ginge's innings was particularly memorable, slogging his first three balls for two fours and a big six after being told to “get your head down and bat for as long as possible in case it rains”!!! The pain of the defeat was later soothed a little by news of heavy defeats for Purbrook and Hungerford, but with tricky matches against Andover, Ventnor and Trojans still to come, Lymington will have to improve in all aspects of their game if they want to maintain their Division 2 status.

Mark
Mark Burrett reached 55, his best 1st team knock of the season

Like the First XI, the Seconds lie perilously close to the relegation zone, and they face real crunch matches against fellow strugglers Cadnam and Flamingos. A poor bowling display on Saturday allowed visitors Sarisbury to score 262-8. Lymington were well set at 180-2 when Guy Hayward was disastrously run out for 53 and the team subsequently slumped to 221 all out (Bowdler 53). Simon Naylor's Match Report

The agony is almost over for Lymington Third XI. They fell to a 7 wicket defeat against BAT despite an improved batting performance which saw them total 164. They now have just two matches left to try to muster up that elusive first win of the season.

Lymington Mini Cricket Week

Lymington's 'mini' cricket week kicked off with the club's annual six-a-side tournament which, due to a mathematical dilemma, hastily became a five-a-side tournament instead. None of these numerical problems seemed to affect Keith Dabengwa whose team cruised to victory, giving rise to the extremely rare sight of a Zimbabwean cricketer picking up some silverware!

The following day saw BATS Cricket Club visit the Sports Ground for one of Lymington's longest standing touring fixtures. The visitors totaled a competitive 205 with leg spinners Dan Waters and Justin Joachim both taking 3 wickets. Ed Molloy led Lymington's reply with 48, but wickets tumbled at the other end and when Matt Bowdler (20) was the seventh man out with the score on 140 BATS were definitely in the ascendancy. Some frantic running between the wickets from Waters and Joachim saw the target whittled down to 50 off 7 overs, but sadly a downpour put paid to any hopes of an exciting finish and the players retreated to the bar early to celebrate an honourable draw.

Deal Victoria & Barns Close CC were Lymington's next visitors and the Kent side were put to the sword by Matt Bowdler who notched up his second century inside four days. The little Aussie's scorching 129 included 3 sixes and 14 fours. Chris Todd also chipped in with 33no as Lymo declared at tea on 205-5. In reply Deal reached 41 before losing their first wicket. Marsh (24) and Hudson (32) progressed the score past the hundred mark, and with Killip smashing the ball to all parts the visitors began to sniff the chance of victory. The wily off spin of Marty Hunt eventually accounted for Killip for 50 while Trevor Phillips claimed 3 wickets to leave Deal requiring 16 from 2 overs with just 2 wickets in hand. The dangerous Francis then went for 16, setting up a tense finale as last man Scott McNamara bravely strode to the crease with his left arm in a sling due to a nasty injury sustained whilst fielding. Despite this handicap, McNamara kept out Phillips' final 3 deliveries and his fellow tailender Bone straightbatted Bowdler's last over to ensure a well deserved draw for the visitors.

Wonderful Weekend for Lymington Colts

Lymington's Colts section is celebrating after carrying off THREE trophies last Sunday. The Under 15s and Under 13s both won their League Play-off finals at Wellow, while 20 miles away the Under 11s triumphed in the inaugural Bashley Six-a-Side tournament. All this came just two days after Lymington Colts had made their first ever appearance at the Rose Bowl in the Hampshire Under 11 cup final.

Great weekend for the seniors too!

It wasn't just the colts who were celebrating over the weekend - all the club's senior Saturday sides went a whole day without losing a match! Admittedly, this was mainly due to the apocalyptic thunderstorm which swept in at lunchtime, but it's a start! There were unreal scenes in Lymington as the Sports Ground was temporarily turned into a giant paddling pool and lightening streaked down all around. The Second XI fought their way through torrential rain on the M27 to get to Locks Heath only to discover that the match had already been called off. "You couldn't actually see the road, it was raining that hard" said a relieved Mark Jackson on arriving back in Lymington. The Third XI too had a wasted journey to Hordle. Bizarrely, once the storms had cleared, the sun came out and it turned into a beautiful sunny afternoon. Unfortunately, the downpour had left the Sports Ground square and outfield in an unplayable state and the umpires decided to call the game off at around 3.30pm, to the disappointment of visitors Hungerford who had traveled more than 60 miles for the match. They perhaps felt that the officials could have waited a little longer before abandoning the match, although in fairness to the umpires, by 6pm the square was still wet in places and, more importantly, large areas of the wicket were like putty after water had seeped in under the covers.

The following day the Sunday XI pulled off an unlikely win at Calmore thanks to Matt Bowdler who turned the game on its head with 7 for 15 as the home side collapsed from 150 for 2 to 185 all out in reply to Lymo's 211. Martin Hunt (68) and Lloyd Scott (48) were the main contributors in Lymington's total.

Double Crossed!

Lymo's First and Second XIs both fell to defeats at the hands of their St Cross counterparts on what turned out to be a Black Saturday for Lymington Cricket Club.

KP
Danny Wiggins (or is it Kevin Pietersen?)

The Firsts were bowled out for just 122 at the Royal Green Jackets Ground in Winchester with Danny Wiggins' gutsy 58 providing the only decent score of note. The home side made heavy weather of reaching their modest target, and were endebted to Graham Noble whose unbeaten 31 guided them to a 4 wicket victory after a mid-innings wobble. The one bright note for Lymington was Keith Dabengwa's best bowling stint of the season so far. He took 4-34 in 12 overs as Lymo were left to ponder what might have been had their batsmen nurdled out 20 or 30 more runs. Tony Whartons' match report

The Seconds were thumped by St Cross Second XI at the Sports Ground. Simon Naylor's men were smashed for 297 before being bowled out for just 105 with the stand-in skipper top-scoring with 29. Simons' match report

The Thirds and Fourths also endured maulings at the hands of Brockenhurst and Hordle respectively - the latter skittling out Lymington for just 24. That humiliating defeat left the Lymington hierarchy seriously pondering the Fourth XI's future - for the remainder of this season at least. Quite what newcomer Steve Van Guising made of the Hordle catastrophe was anyone's guess. Brought in at short notice, the South African-born batsman top-scored with 14 (which surely puts him into the Lymo record books for the batsman making the highest percentage of runs out of the final total on debut!) as Lymington were bowled out in less than 45 minutes. The Hordle opening batsmen wasted little time knocking off the runs and the whole match lasted just 12.5 overs.

At least the Third XI made their match against Brockenhurst last a little longer, scoring 107 before falling to an 8 wicket defeat.

Seconds' victory is Naylor made!

Simon Naylor was the Lymington hero as the Second XI gained a priceless second victory of the season when they defeated Eastleigh & Otterbourne at the Sports Ground on Saturday. The former Brockenhurst opener scored a vital 78 as Lymington successfully overhauled Eastleigh's 239-7 to win by 3 wickets. Sadly, Simon's availability has been so patchy this season that club photographer John McGuirk has been unable to track him down to take a photo, so we'll regrettably have to print a photo of Chairman Peter Tapper (who scored 53) instead! The win lifts Lymington out of the relegation zone for the first time in weeks and gives Dave Griffith's side a real chance of avoiding the drop. Interestingly, four of Lymo's last six matches are against teams currently occupying places in the bottom six. Simon Naylor's Match Report.

The First XI sank to a disappointing 32 run defeat at Purbrook on an uncovered wicket. Extras again proved to be Lymington's undoing as the home side scored 202-9. Only Dan Wiggins, Bryn Darbyshire and Neil Trestrail looked at home as Lymo committed the cardinal sin of being bowled out with more than 8 overs to spare.

The Third XI's tortuous season continued with an 8 wicket defeat at Woodgreen, while the Fourths put up a good fight against Ellingham before losing by 3 wickets despite Luigi Di Maria's unbeaten 52.

Aaron proves he's not over the Heal!
Former Lymington overseas player Aaron Heal has been offered a full contract by Western Australia. The left arm spinner and middle order batsman earned his reward following a successful season back home in First Grade cricket.

Aaron made his First Class debut for WA against Tasmania in 2004, but has been on a rookie contract ever since. Unfortunately opportunities for the full state side have been limited, not least because of the bouncy Waca wicket which favours quicker bowlers rather than spinners and when Aaron paid a visit to Lymington in April he was skeptical about his chances of earning another rookie contract, let alone a full contract. Fortunately the WA selectors were impressed with Aaron's form for his Perth side during the last Australian season and offered the gangly off-spinner a new deal. Other WA squad members include Aussie Test stars Adam Gilchrist, Mike Hussey, Brad Hogg, Justin Langer and Damien Martyn, while four other former Southern League cricketers - Shawn Gillies, Chris Rogers, Luke Ronchi and Adam Voges - are also on full contracts at the Waca.

Aaron played for Lymington in 2002 when he scored over 600 runs and took more than 30 wickets. He is currently piling up the runs for Darlington in the South Durham & North Yorkshire League and hopes to pop in to the Sports Ground again to see his old mates before returning home at the end of the season.

Double trouble for the colts
Lymington's hopes of a league and cup cleansweep at all age levels was ended earlier this week when both the Under 11A and Under 13A teams were defeated in their cup quarter finals. Tony Thorp's Under 13s suffered a disastrous batting collapse at BAT and were sent spinning to a 63 run defeat while the 11s came a cropper at Bashley. It was the first time that either team had been beaten this season and although the defeats came as a big disappointment, both sides are still on course to win their relative league titles.

The Under 15s meanwhile are still in with a chance of the double. They are due to meet Wellow in the last eight of the cup and face a top-of-the-table showdown with Langley Manor this Sunday.

Jim
Jim Lowe

Despite the aforementioned cup exits, it has been a quite remarkable season for Lymington's colts section. The Under 11As, 13As and 15s are so far unbeaten in their leagues, while the Under 11Bs have suffered just one defeat all season and are currently top of their division with two matches to play. A very young and inexperienced Under 13B side managed by Jim Lowe (pictured) has made great progress during the summer and won more games than was ever expected. Add to this the growing number of youngsters turning up for training on Monday and Tuesday evenings and it's clear that the future for Lymington Cricket Club looks very bright indeed.

Hillman the Avenger as the Fourths are back in the black!

Laurie Hillman's splendid all round performance not only helped Lymington Fourth XI to their first win of the season, but also enabled the team to take their points tally back into positive figures following the 40 point deduction imposed by the HCL for Lymo's failure to fulfil two previous fixtures.

Bearing in mind Lymington's wafer-thin playing resources at the moment it was a minor miracle that Meg Gannaway somehow managed to scrape together a Fourth XI for the fixture with Suttoners II - especially on a day when several other sides cancelled matches due to the lure of the World Cup. Lymo's line-up was actually reasonably strong with the two Thorp boys, Luigi Di Maria and the hobbling Steve Coltman all returning to the side. And it was Di Maria (4-16) and Hillman (3-35) who set up the victory, helping dismiss Suttoners for just 108. Hillman then led the way with bat, scoring 30 as Lymo romped home for the loss of just 2 wickets.

Luigi
Luigi De Maria Batting

Lymington are still well adrift at the bottom South West 4, averaging just 1.14 points from seven matches (which actually isn't too bad when the 40 point deduction is taken into account!), but at least the win does give a glimmer of hope at the end of a rather long tunnel.

There was little good news elsewhere as the Seconds and Thirds both continued their dismal runs at Hursley Park and Trojans respectively.

The First XI were batted out of their SPL2 match by high-flying Trojans at a sweltering Sports Ground. The visitors' 262-7 was always likely to be too many for Lymington, especially after a dreadful start to the Lymo innings which saw the team collapse to 4 for 3. Keith Dabengwa (52) briefly threatened, but once the Zimbabwean had departed it was left to Christian Pain (54) and Trevor Phillips (18no) to salvage some pride as Lymo ended on 201-9. Match report

On Monday 12th June @ 7.00pm Cricket-Hockey.com are sponsoring a club night for us.

As the UK's Premier supplier of cricket kit Cricket-Hockey will be bringing along cricket equipment for the colts, (and their parents, club members etc) giving parents a chance to SEE, TRY, and BUY if they wish to.

The correct kit is an important part of colts cricket, and after the recent run of colts with bats that would be better suited to myself (Jim Lowe!), I would recommend parents who intend to purchase bats to have their budding test players sized so the bat is properly suited to the player in future. Weather permitting there will be a B-B-Q going, and the bar will be naturally open. This is also a chance to chat with the coaches after a training session.

Taps on the main square

Who left the Taps on?!!!

All eight of Lymington's senior and colts matches over the weekend fell victim to the attrocious recent weather. As the photo clearly shows, Friday night's storms left the Sports Ground square with three huge puddles - one of which extended right underneath the covers, leaving Saturday's wicket dry at each end and sopping wet in the middle. Not even the famous Lymington Water Hog could help on this occasion: as soon as one lot of water was sponged off the square another lot would appear in its place! The Woodside square was slightly dryer (presumably due to the water gushing off down the slope towards the car park end which was like a swamp), but the wicket itself was still too wet and slippery to be deemed playable. At least the early cancellations saved the First XI a long journey to Hungerford where their recent record is pretty dire. However the Seconds, Thirds and Fourths might have fancied their chances of recording their first victories of the season in their respective matches.

Lloyd Scott and Christian Pain picked up a couple of wickets apiece. Match report

All you need is glove!
Having spent the winter searching for an overseas player, First XI captain Adie Hunt has spent the past week frantically looking for a wicketkeeper for this Saturday's opening SPL match against Purbrook. Incredibly, his five potential keepers are all unavailable and Adie – who has occasionally donned the gloves in indoor league matches – might even have to do it himself. With regular keeper Ed Molloy unavailable until his Cardiff University studies end, Mark Newton had agreed to step in, but is away at a wedding this weekend. Ian Young is unable to travel back from his new London home while Bryn Darbyshire misses the match through injury and Matt Molloy has apparently retired. When asked to comment on his quandary Adie replied: "Who is this Quandary fellow, and has he ever kept wicket?"

The Second XI also have wicket keeping problems and, like Adie Hunt, skipper Dave Griffiths may be forced to do the job himself as they face a tricky trip to South Wilts. The Third XI travel to Bransgore with new captain Jim Lowe at the helm, while Meg Gannaway's Fourth XI entertain Sway at Woodside.

A dapper Lew with son David
Happy birthday to Lew!
Club stalwart Lew Gregory recently celebrated his 75th birthday. A surprise party was arranged by wife Mary in honour of the Lymington legend who has been associated with the club since the early 1950s. Lew spent his playing years as a useful top order batsman and wicketkeeper, before fulfilling such varied roles as umpire, committee man and, more recently, resident organist at the Sports Ground! Lew's offspring continued the family's cricketing tradition - son David is reputed to be the first Lymington colt to score a half century, while daughter Frances played the game to a high standard and apparently once even bowled out the great Jon Hardy!

Will he go?
Wonderkid Will in shock transfer rumour sensation!

Lymington have been shocked by the news that teenage wonderkid Will Thorp is rumoured to be at the centre of a bidding war between two rival SPL Gold League giants - believed to be Bashley and BAT. Teen sensation Thorp attracted the attention of the SPL big guns with a string of sensational performances for Lymington last season and has been valued at between 12 and 15 bottles of Panda Pops.

The 15 year old whizzkid is said to favour a move to Bashley in order to play alongside his hero Mark 'Figgy' Figgins. A source close to Thorp said: "Will idolises Figgy and it would be a dream come true for him to play alongside him in Bashley Fourth XI".

Speculation intensified with news that Lymington Chairman Peter Tapper was allegedly spotted at Bashley's training ground last week. Rumours persist that the Lymington supremo was there to discuss a deal to take the youngster to Bashley as part of a Panda Pops-plus-player exchange, possibly involving veteran batsman Shaun Lilley. However, Tapper laughed off the speculation, claiming that he had only been there to check out the electric cables.

SPL champions BAT are also monitoring the situation closely and sources claim they are ready to top any offer that Bashley may make. The mega-rich Totton club are confident that their pool table and superior range of bar snacks could swing things in their favour. Meanwhile, an eleventh hour bid from Sway seems destined to fail.

Thorp himself has been unavailable for comment, but his agent - father Tony - last night issued a press statement. In it the used-car magnate claimed: "every player has his price - a bit like one of my quality used cars now available at incredibly competitive prices (part exchange welcome - finance never a problem)."
