Lymington suffered their third consecutive defeat and are plunging into the relegation zone. Locks Heath were inserted on a belter of a track and took advantage of some wayward bowling and 350 plus was looming. However Will Thorp bowled their opener with a beauty and some degree of normality was restored. However they were always ahead of the run rate and the final total of 269 was eminently achievable. All our bowlers took a pasting but the fielders stuck to their task and wickets fell regularly to reward our team with four bowling points.
A good start was essential but Guy Andrew & Justin Morton were soon back in the hutch in next to no time but Tom Thorp was showing signs of his class and with James Stevenson 21 they put on 65 before Stevenson was out caught & bowled. Tom and his brother Will then entertained the crowd with some fine shots but there was always the risk of a brotherly run out and this duly happened with Tom on 47. Enter Peter Tapper to despatch the ball to all parts of the outfield before he stupidly ran himself out for 43. Sensible batting by Alex Treagus ensured four precious batting points but the honours went to Locks Heath.
