Lymington batted first, and steadily set about building a commanding total. E Collison (3) and J Morgan (2) anchored the innings and ran well taking advantage of some wayward bowling. Captain S Paxton (7) and V Falso (4) started the acceleration, and when K Evans (26) and B Sykes (10) sent the bowling to all parts Bashley must have wondered what they could do to stop the Lymington advance. Finally F Ambrose (7) and A Drodge (4) saw the Lymington total to a towering 304 in their 16 overs.
Bashley struggled in the face of accurate Lymington bowling, with only B Woolfrey (5) and S Hughes (3) able to post positive scores. All the Lymington bowlers took wickets, E Collison (3-0-8-1), J Morgan (2-0-5-1), S Paxton (2-1-1-1), V Falso (2-0-8-1), B Sykes (3-2-4-1), A Drodge (2-0-2-1) and F Ambrose (2-0-6-2) A fine example of a good team performance.
