Improving Lymington

Lymington 95-6 Sway 66-5

A much improved performance saw Lymington record their first victory of the season courtesy of a 29 run win over Sway.

Aidan Lindsay-Wood (16) and Josh Thacker (27) gave Lymington a solid start on a ground where the long boundaries and slow outfield made quick runscoring difficult, although this didn't seem to affect George Hayward who managed a big six over square leg before departing for 9. Ollie Wiltshire (7) and Nicky Elliott (8) both perished in pursuit of quick runs, and Lymington were indebted to Sway's wayward bowlers who gifted them 17 wides in a final total of 95-6. For the home side, R Dunlop was the most successful bowler with 3-22 while there were also wickets for Richards, Woodfine and Fitzgerald.

Sway's reply received a disastrous start with Hayward picking up two wickets in only the second over. Thacker then removed S Nailor for 8 to leave Sway on 26-3, and although S Richards (29no) and W Baughan (12) added 30 for the fourth wicket, Sway were already well behind the run rate. Charlie Kinsella grabbed the wicket of Dunlop for 2 as Lymington looked for wickets, but only 5 could be taken as Sway finished on 66-5.
