CLUB ANNOUNCEMENTS
28 Dec 08

AGM HONOURS NEIL TRESTRAIL
Neil Trestrail has been awarded life membership of Lymington Cricket Club.
The accolade, which was presented at the club's recent Annual General Meeting at the Walhampton Arms, is in recognition of more than two decades of loyal service to the club.

Tres being presented his award by Brian Hobby

Since making his debut against Trojans 23 years ago when, typically, he took
7 for 55 and scored a half century, Neil has been one of the most prolific all-rounders in the club¹s history. In that debut season Neil proved to be an integral part of Lymington¹s Southern League championship winning side, and went on to captain the First XI for many years. A fierce competitor on the field and a consummate gentleman off it, Neil's contribution to the club has gone far deeper than just runs and wickets. Without Neil's persuasive powers it is unlikely that the club would have secured the services of such talented players as Tony Middleton, Glyn Treagus, Dan Peacock, Dan Goldstraw and many more. Another loyal servant of the club, Mark Jackson, was made a vice president.

The AGM also saw Christian Pain installed as new First XI captain. Christian will have a challenging job on his hands as Lymington begin their first season in the prestigious Division One of the Southern Premier League following promotion last season. Outgoing skipper Adie Hunt, who drops down to captain the Second XI, reflected on a highly satisfying season for his side. A third place finish was ultimately enough to see the team promoted, although had it not been for a couple of highly forgettable performances against local rivals New Milton, the team would almost certainly have been challenging champions Ventnor for the title. Overseas player Craig O'Shannessy topped the division's bowling charts with 39 wickets, while Morgan Rushbrook scored 548 runs at an average of almost 50. The team also came agonizingly close to making the Twenty20 play-off finals at the Rose Bowl, losing out off the last ball after dominating division one side Totton & Eling. Sadly, the Second and Third XIs were less successful with both sides suffering the ignominy of relegation from their respective divisions.

The meeting heard that the Sports Ground had finished fourth in the ground gradings for the entire Southern Premier League in 2008 ­ no mean feat for a local authority ground. The ground had also finished top of the Hampshire League Division One ratings. Paul Banks and his Town Council colleagues were thanked for their hard work, as was Peter Tapper who's hours of rolling had ensured a snooker table-like surface. Ronnie Hawker was mentioned in despatches for his admirable efforts on the vastly improved wicket at Woodside.

Lee Moors reported that 2008 had been another successful year for Lymington Colts section with the Under 9s and 11As winning their respective divisions and the Under 15s finishing runners-up. The club could also boast two county colts in Oscar Marshall and Felix Ambrose, and numerous New Forest representatives. The club's coaches, especially Morgan Rushbrook, were praised for their hard work with the youngsters while the meeting also gave thanks to Jim Lowe who had recently emigrated to New Zealand. Jim¹s tireless work over the past few years had not only helped bring success on the field of play, but had also been instrumental in the club¹s recent awarding of Focus Club status.

There was a stark warning from outgoing treasurer Mark Gannaway that without the tremendous financial backing of the club's loyal sponsors in 2008, particularly Mackenzie Mackenzie and Associates and Lynx Sports Management, the club would have found itself in the precarious financial state currently suffered by so many clubs and businesses across the country. To stave off the effects of the credit crunch, it was agreed to increase match fees and subscriptions for 2009, although it was pointed out that, despite these increases, it will still be cheaper to join and play for Lymington than most other similarly sized cricket clubs. Jerry Holt will take over as treasurer from Mark who has taken up a new teaching post in the north of the county.

Mark was thanked for his many years of sterling service to the club as treasurer, captain, colts manager and not insignificant batsman.

COMING HOME
Attendees at the club's recent AGM were delighted to hear the news that Glyn Treagus has decided to re-join the club after a three year spell at local rivals Bashley. Glyn, who originally joined Lymington from Trojans back in 1994, is one of Lymo's all-time leading Southern League runscorers, and still regularly represents Dorset in the Minor Counties Championship. The news of Glyn's arrival comes as a massive boost to new First XI skipper Christian Pain as he embarks on assembling a team capable of holding their own in the highly competitive Gold division.

Average Pitch Markings 2008-1st X1

Delighted to report that Lymington came fourth out of 38 teams for 2008. Our overall mark of 31.29 was only beaten by Bournemouth, Ventnor & The Hampshire Academy. As we are a Local Authority ground this makes our position extremely creditable and our thanks to Paul and his team at L.& P.T.C. Our second X1 finished first in the Hampshire County League Division 1 and third overall out of the four divisions. We have a really good platform to build on and if anyone is available to help out with the pre-season rolling please let Peter Tapper know. This is our highest ever finish in the SEPL and we should be proud of our achievements. We would probably have won had it not been for the damage caused by the mats used as hard standing.

Fair Play Award

Lymington finished second out of 38 teams with an average of 9.56 out of 10. Well done to Adie and his team for controlling themselves at pivotal moments. Bournemouth were the winners. Our lowest score was 8 in our final game which effectively lost us this award.

Indoor Cricket News

Lymington indoor team led by newly married Simon Naylor continue to play attacking cricket and recently defeated last year's champions New Milton making it three wins out of three. Yet again they were indebted to all round talent of Christian Pain, firstly his fine batting as they rattled up 130 to win by 19 runs and his miserly bowling performance. Last Sunday saw their defence of the Challenge Cup open with an easy win over Pylewell Park. Batting first Lymington piled up 136 thanks yet again to Mr Pain scoring 54 supported by Captain Naylor 33 & veteran indoor & outdoor player Neil Trestrail also scoring 33. In reply Pylewell totaled 86 thanks to Matt Doe with 41. Shock bowler Dave Griffith continued his unlikely rich vein of wicket taking to finish up with another two wicket haul.

Football!

Ex Lymington Colt Josh McQuoid, now a full time professional at Bournemouth, was the goal scoring star for Northern Ireland Under 21's in their 3-1 victory over their Scottish counterparts as seen live on Sky television. Josh who played alongside Sam Vokes at our U-11 level scored two goals and might have had a hat trick but just missed a chance at the end of the match. Well done to both Josh and Sam who is now playing for Wolverhampton Wanderers and Wales.

JimSunny Jim - New Zealand bound

Jim Lowe who many of you know from his time as player but more recently as Colts Chairman is leaving to take his entourage to New Zealand on Thursday 27th November. Jim has spent countless hours taking on the role as Chairman of the Colts for the past three years and achieving success at all age groups. Jim was responsible for introducing cricket for the under nines and behind the Lynx Indoor League. The fact is that his lovely wife. Emma hardly ever saw Jim during the Summer and the Winter. My money is on Jim getting involved in New Zealand or coming back as our overseas player. Jim, on behalf of the Club many, many thanks for all your hard work and we wish your family the very best wherever you decide to lay your hat.

Adam Darbyshire

Whilst on the subject of farewells we also say goodnight to Adam Darbyshire who is leaving for the Middle East at the same time. Mr Heart-Throb of the Club will be missed and we now need to find his successor. Again on behalf of the Club all the very best in your new venture.

Fixture Secretary Required

FIXTURE SECRETARY-As the result of Jerry Holt taking on the role as Treasurer we need a replacement. Whoever is appointed will be given full training and would suit somebody with a computer. The role has changed as the majority of the fixtures for both the Seniors and Colts are sorted out by computer leaving Sundays to compile plus mid week friendlies. Please contact either Jerry Holt on 02380 282213 or Peter Tapper on 01590 674660.

Lymo now a focus club

Focus Club-I am pleased to announce that we have been made a Focus Club by the Hampshire Cricket Board. We are the 37th Club in Hampshire to be awarded this status. I am pleased to announce that Mandy Grierson is the contact person for Lymington and her son Cameron will be in charge of coaching sessions at eight local primary schools plus Priestlands.

As a Club we have ticked all the boxes to achieve ClubMark and being a Focus Club. The payback for the Club is to be able to attract new players of all ages and standards and as a Club to be able to offer a safe and friendly environment for all players to play cricket.

TommyTommy Down Under

We understand that Tommy Barton has been asked to become a net bowler against the South Africa test team who are in Australia for the forthcoming Test series. This is a feather in Tommy's cap and the experience should be of immense proportions.

Tommy is currently representing his district at U-17 level and playing grade 3 cricket for Gosnells in the WACA. If you wish to follow Tommy's progress tune into the WACA website. Tommy's funky bats are breaking up and he has now smashed three. We understand the weather has been wet and lots of games washed out. Looks like our summer rain has been exported to Australia.

 

Dates for the Diary

AGM

The AGM is at The Walhampton Arms 7.30pm on the 28th November. All members are welcome so please support your Club

Spring Golf Day

March 25th 2009. This is the LCC Corporate Golf Day at Barton on Sea. Please put this important date in your diary.

Indoor League

After two games against Bashley in the New Forest Indoor League our first team remain undefeated. The highlight of our last victory was a superb 70 not out from Christian Pain. However Christian is threatening retirement and this could have a serious impact on our chances of being title chasers.

Golf Day

Lymington Cricket Club celebrated their twenty first anniversary golf day at Brokenhurst Manor. Our thanks to Tony Webb for organising a sun drenched day only to hurt his back and be unable to take part. The winner was Adrian Hunt with an astonishing 39 points which included 25 points on the back nine, this score alone beat several distinguished cricketers including their Chairman Mr Tapper. It was a fantastic double celebration for Adie as Lymington 1st X1, under his astute captaincy, have been promoted to Division 1 of the Southern Electric League. Adie just beat defending champion Bryn Darbyshire on countback to become the sixteenth winner of this prestigious event. In the olden days the winner had to organise the event for the next year but David Coles is so keen to oversee the administration and buying of the prizes that he has taken on the role of chief organiser. It was an excellent effort by Bryn as no defending champion had ever defended his title. In third place was a guest from Bashley CC, Mark Figgins with a very creditable score of 37 points with Barry Gregory also on 37 points but losing out on countback. Twenty one members and guests took part which was an excellent turnout. The Tappers hoovered up the longest drive and nearest the pin and the guest prize went to Rob Stainer with 33points. The booby prize went to Luigi Di Maria with 19 points just beating Peter Tapper.

Lymo 1st team are promoted to ECB Southern Electric Premier League, Division 1

After many years of near misses, the first team have been promoted to division 1 for finishing 3rd place in the division 2 league and having a gold status ground. So next year the local rivals will be Bashley and not New Milton.

Well done to Adie and the team.

7 Oct 08

All Change

A new sub-committee was formed to run the Colts as the result of Sunny Jim disappearing to New Zealand and possibly applying to become our overseas player. The new team is Lee Moors, Julie Moors, Pauline Ambrose, Cameron Grierson, Mandy Grierson & Peter Tapper. Please see the Colts section for details.

The highlights of our first meeting was to welcome Greig Stewart from the Hampshire Cricket Board as our guest to discuss the requirements to become a Focus Club incorporating A Chance to Shine. Other action points were to produce an attendance register for training nights, scrap the squad system to allow each Colt the same opportunity to be selected, a new membership database and offering Training Courses to volunteers.

Read Adie's match report of last weeks win over OTs and Romsey

Lymington's Player Coach, Dai-Morgan Rushbrook named Southern Electric Premier Cricket League Cricketer of the Week, following his impressive all-round performance; scoring 94 runs and taking four wickets for 34 against Old Tauntonians & Romsey on August 16. Morgan continues his fine form with the bat has boosted Lymington's promotion chances having scored five times over 50 runs since his return from Cardiff for the summer break.

19 Aug 08

 Rampant Rushbrook rules at Romsey
A fine all round performance by Morgan Rushbrook helped Lymington to a vital win over OTs & Romsey. Rushbrook, whose exploits earned him the SPL player of the week award, struck 94 and then took 4 wickets as Lymington cruised home by 82 runs. The victory consolidated Lymo's third place in SPL Division 2 and leaves them still in with an outside chance of overhauling second-placed Ventnor who face leaders Rowledge on the final day of the season.

Meanwhile, Lymington's Second and Third XIs both fell to defeat. Mark Newton's 62 couldn't prevent Alton from recording a comfortable 5 wicket win at the Sports Ground, while Tim Noble's 85 wasn't enough to save the Thirds from an agonising last over defeat against New Milton Third XI at Fernhill.

Sunday saw Lymington heavily defeated in the annual Dale Middleton Memorial Match despite a rapid half century from Dave Griffiths. Lymo's Under 15s were equally well beaten by their Bashley counterparts on the adjacent astro pitch.

Twenty20 heartbreak for Lymo


Lymington came agonisingly close to pulling off a huge cup upset before falling to a heartbreaking last ball defeat against national club champions Totton & Eling. Defending a modest 121 for 8, Lymington looked to have all but booked their place in the finals day at the Rose Bowl as their illustrious hosts slipped well behind the run rate. However, Rob Franklin, who had earlier taken 5 wickets, dragged the Eels back into the match with 14 off the penultimate over, and it all came down to the last ball of the match. With Totton requiring three for victory, James Manning smashed Christian Pain's final delivery into the car park to seal an unlikely victory.



All of Lymington's league matches on Saturday fell victim of the weather. Lymington First XI now face a crucial match at OTs & Romsey next Saturday with a place in the much vaunted gold league a distinct possibility for the winners.

Tight at the top
Lymington are up to third in the SPL Division 2 table following their 94 run victory over Burridge. Morgan Rushbrook continued his good run of form with 68 as Lymo totalled 220 for 8. Craig O'Shannessy and Tommy Barton then shared 6 wickets as Burridge slumped to 126 all out. Lymington's promotion hope were boosted with the news of OTs & Romsey's demise against New Milton. match report

Meanwhile, rain forced the cancellation of the Second and Third XI matches.

Later start for big cup clash
The start of Lymington's Twenty20 Cup clash at Totton & Eling next Sunday (August 10th) has been put back 90 minutes to 4.30pm. Totton's last match againt South Wilts attracted a fairly partizan crowd of more than 400, so Lymington will need all the support they can get on Sunday. Parking at Southern Gardens is limited so make sure you get there early.

One Eel of a draw!

Sunday's hero Craig O'Shannessy listens to the draw made live on Radio Solent

Lymington s reward for beating Bashley is a clash with national club Twenty20 champions Totton & Eling Eels in the quarter finals on August 10th. The fixture sees Adie Hunt's men come face to face with former Lymo fast bowler Dan Goldstraw who recently took his 300th SPL wicket, and will revive happy memories of the last time the two clubs met at this stage of the competition back in 2001 when Lymington won by 11 runs and went on to lift the trophy.

The draw, made live on Radio Solent, saw Lymington drawn away from home for the third time in a row, meaning that Lymo yet again miss out on a bumper payday at the bar. As many as 500 spectators attended Totton's second round win over South Wilts, and a similar crowd is expected on Sunday week. The incentive for the winners is a trip to the Rose Bowl for the semi-finals and final on September 7th.

Pure Electric!

Craig - 50 in 15 balls!

Lymington advanced to the Quarter Finals of the Southern Electric Contacting Twenty20 Cup thanks largely to an amazing batting display from Craig O'Shannessy (pictured) who struck a breathtaking 61 as old rivals Bashley were defeated by 16 runs. Craig, who took just 15 balls to reach his half century, was particularly harsh on former Lymington bowler Mike West whose first two overs cost 34 runs. Bryn Darbyshire (21), Dave Griffiths (39) and Adie Hunt (23) also chipped in as Lymo totaled 183, before Bashley were restricted to 167 for 8 in reply (Adam Darbyshire 4 for 35). match report (with photos)

Magic Morgan keeps Lymo in the hunt
With five weeks of the league season remaining, there's still much to play for in the scrap for promotion from SPL Division Two. Lymington got back to winning ways with a 99 run win over Havant II at the Sports Ground. Lymo recovered from 30 for 3 to post 239 for 8 thanks initially to a superb innings from Morgan Rushbrook (77), and latterly Mark Newton (25 not out) and the debuting Will Thorp (12) whose flurry of late boundaries saw 33 runs gleaned in the last 3 overs. Christian Pain (3 for 11) made vital early breakthroughs before Craig O'Shannessy returned to the attack after an uncharacteristically lacklustre opening spell to rip through the tail as Havant were dismissed for 140.

With rivals OTs & Romsey also winning again, Lymington know that they probably have to win all five of their remaining games to have a chance of securing second spot which could be enough to procure promotion. Intriguingly, they visit Romsey Sports Centre on August 16th.

The Seconds threw away an excellent chance of gaining a much needed win at Liss. Chasing the home side's 201, Lymo were well placed at 180 for 4 but slumped to 186 all out. Scott Tapper top-scored with 68, while Adam Darbyshire (48) and Jim Stevenson (38) also made runs before the dramatic collapse ensewed. match report

The Third XI's mini revival was well and truly halted at Verwood where Lee Moors' side endured a spanking that Max Moseley would have been proud of.

 

Mackenzie, Mackenzie & Associates player of the month

Scott Tapper was rewarded for his two consecutive league fifties by winning the prestigious Mackenzie, Mackenzie & Associates player of the month award for July.

Development Fund Draw

The July monthly Development Fund Draw also took place and Linda Jenkin won the £100 top prize followed by James Stevenson £50 and in third place winning £20 was Sheila Ormsby-Rivers.

Felix's fab weekend

Flex - top manIt was a weekend to remember for 11 year old Felix Ambrose (pictured).On Sunday he was presented with the man of the match award as Lymington beat Hyde by 38 runs in the New Forest Under 11 play off final at Calmore. Less than 24 hours earlier Felix had made his senior debut for the Third XI at Woodside, scoring 23 vital runs and taking two wickets as Lymington beat Exbury by 14 runs to continue their climb up the table.


Third XI captain Lee Moors (who is also Felix's Under 11 coach) was full of praise for the youngster. "When I was one short for the match I had no hesitation in calling up Felix to the side, even though he's so young. It was an outstanding performance a few of the senior players could learn a thing or two from watching him play!" he laughed. Felix, who is currently in the Hampshire Under 11 squad, admitted that he was nervous to start with, but soon settled down after facing his first delivery. "Men's cricket is a completely different game to colts cricket," he said, "some of the bowlers make it bounce a lot more. But I felt really good and I think I made a good impression. I hope to be picked next week!"


The Third XIs reliance on youth certainly paid dividends. As well as Felix's memorable performance, 14 year old Nicky Elliott also top scored with 35 and took two wickets, while 16 year old Ben Rostand grabbed three wickets as Exbury were dismissed for 129 in reply to Lymo's 143 for 9.


Elsewhere, there was little joy for Lymington's other two senior sides. The First XI lost by 4 wickets at Hook. match report.

Lymington Colts Magnificent Seven
Lymington B's final New Forest Under 11 colts league game of the season produced not only a handsome 127 run victory, but also the quite remarkable, and perhaps even unique, spectacle of seven wickets falling in consecutive balls during the Hythe & Dibden innings. The unusual feat was initiated by Lymington's Hugo Chandler who took four wickets, all clean bowled with the final four balls of the 11th over of the innings. Incredibly, James Doggett then took a hat trick with the next three balls of the following over. All this left the stunned coach with the tough task of trying to decide which of the two hat-trick heroes should keep the match ball! Hacksaw, anyone?

7 in a row!

Junior school cricket festival at Lymo

Lymington sports ground was the setting for the Lymington & District Primary School Shield on Monday 14th July. The brainchild of Jim Lowe, Chairman of Lymington CC Colts, six local schools are invited to play kwik cricket for under 9's and under 11's. The general idea is for kids of all standards to participate and have some fun but hopefully get introduced to cricket. The under 9's was won by Lymington Junior School who narrowly beat Our Lady & St Joseph by 23 runs. Lots of action by all the players and some outstanding performances on both sides.

The under 11's final was between Lymington Junior School (A) and Pennington Junior School. Again a very close contest with Lymington emerging as the winners by 12 runs. Milford Primary School also took part and it is hoped that this fixture can be played annually. The shields and medals were presented by Chris Wheeler of the Hampshire Cricket board. Our thanks to our Mackenzie,Mackenzie & Associates and Craig O'Shannessy for their support.

Ventnor vanquished

Dish comes good in the Bowl

Craig O'Shannessy finally laid his batting hoodoo to rest as Lymington recorded a rare and much needed victory at Ventnor to keep their promotion hopes alive. Having perished several times in the thirties in previous matches, Craig - or 'Dish' as he is better known back home in Oz - finally made it into the forties in Ventnor's unique bowl-shaped ground, eventually reaching 77 before spooning a catch to long off. Craig's superb innings included six sixes, and together with newcomer Rob Lammiman who hit a patient 53, Lymington reached 258 at tea.

Lymo, who had lost their last 7 wickets for just 20 runs, were then made to sweat by Andy Whyte and Nono Pongolo whose half centuries almost pulled the game out of the fire for Ventnor. Fortunately, Lymo's bowlers held their nerve and the home side finished 13 runs short at the close.  match report

Perhaps Craig's brilliant innings at Ventnor was inspired by the sign spotted in the adjacent Botanical Gardens.

Meanwhile, the Seconds fell to a 5 wicket defeat against Eastleigh & Otterbourne at the Sports Ground and the improving Third XI defeated Centurians at Fordingbridge thanks to five wickets from Nicky Elliott and a half century from Scotty Tapper.

 

The thirds also scored over a ton beating Centurions and in doing so put a bit of space between lymo and the relegation zone and in doing so young Pixi (N Elliot) got 5 wickets. match report

The seconds unfortunately lost to Eastleigh & Otterborne

Lymos 20-20 vision
Lymington gained a degree of revenge for their recent league drubbing by New Milton by defeating the same opposition by 11 runs at Fernhill in the first round of the SEC 20-20 trophy. Bryn Darbyshires brutal half century helped Lymo to 159 for 7, and although the home side were well in contention for the most part of their innings, Milton were ultimately restricted to 147 for 9.
Perhaps inevitably, the draw for the next round announced live on Radio Solent on Monday gave Lymington another local derby, this time against Bashley. The tie will be played at the BCG on Sunday July 27th with a 3pm start. match report

Lymington's reign ends in the rain
Lymington's proud record of never having lost in the final of the Presidents Cup was shattered by underdogs Cadnam who recorded a nine wicket victory on a damp and dismal evening at New Milton's Fernhill ground. Holders Lymo probably felt their 143 all out was enough to retain the trophy, but reckoned without 18 year old Australian Ben Green who smashed a brilliant 92 not out as the Hants Division 2 side reached their victory target with 4 balls to spare.

Lymington suffer a derby demolition!

Lymington's SPL Division Two title ambitions suffered an almighty jolt as they were thrashed by a rampant New Milton side in the first meeting between the two sides in 11 years. Milton threw the recent formbook out of the window, dismissing their high-flying neighbours for a paltry 96 with the pacy Eric Lynge ripping out the top order. Craig O'Shannessy gave Lymo a glimmer of hope, removing James Whitehurst with only the third ball of New Milton's reply, but that was as good as it got for a shell-shocked Lymington who suffered the ignominy of watching Milton race to an emphatic nine wicket victory with more than 35 overs to spare.

 


There was better news elsewhere with Lymington Third XI finally achieving that elusive first win of the season. But it was a close-run thing as opponents Trojans, chasing 158 for victory, were dismissed in the final over just 8 runs short. It meant a successful start for new captain Lee Moors, and prompted the onlooking outgoing skipper Meg Gannaway to wryly comment, "Maybe I should have resigned years ago!"

 


The Second XI were also victorious at Bramshaw where Tom Thorp followed up his century last Sunday with a sparkling 71. Jim Stevenson also recorded a half century as Lymo reached 230. The home side appeared to be well on course for victory until wedding planner Simon Naylor wrapped up the victory with a stunning six wicket haul.

Liphook stunned by a right pair of Hunts!

Lymington fully recovered from their OTs & Romsey nightmare to record a whopping 168 run victory at Liphook. The win was underpinned by a 142 run opening partnership between brothers Marty and Adie Hunt who scored 82 and 41 respectively. Christian Pain (41) was also among the runs as Lymo rattled up 238 for 8, before skittling the home side for just 70. The Hunts partnership was Lymington's highest opening stand since Glyn Treagus and Karl Whatham put on 266 against Ventnor in 2004, and left statisticians wondering if this was the highest opening stand in the SPL by a pair of brothers.

The Seconds got back to winning ways with a 6 wicket win over Portsmouth II at the Sports Ground. Adam Darbyshires 5 wickets help restrict Pompey to 203 before Afghanistan-bound Mark Jackson led Lymos reply with 78.

The Third XIs match against Southampton Community CC was cancelled due to overnight rain in the Millbrook Rec area.

Thorp motors his way to a maiden ton

18 year old Tom Thorp was celebrating on Sunday night after notching up his first century. Toms unbeaten 102 from just 77 balls helped Lymington to a 5 wicket win over the Elite in the annual Brian Rickman Memorial match at the Sports Ground. The Elite had posted 245 for 8 thanks mainly to Simon Naylors 88 not out, and seemed to have the hosts reply well under control until Thorp entered the fray and guided Lymington home with five balls to spare. Scott Tapper (44) was also in the runs, while Nicky Elliott, who had earlier taken three wickets, chipped in with 31.

Let the battle recommence

This Saturday sees the first league meeting between the First XIs of Lymington and New Milton in more than 11 years. The match at the Sports Ground is arguably the most eagerly awaited fixture of the season for both clubs, and sure to revive memories of many classic encounters from the 1970s and 80s. Indeed, the importance of this fixture in days gone by can be summed up by former Milton stalwart Neil Taylor who recently admitted that, as long as we beat Lymington it was always a decent season, no matter where we finished in the league. Although Lymos good recent form, coupled with Miltons alarming slump of late, will probably make the home side favourites for this latest clash, Milton will unquestionably be fired up for match which has the makings of a classic local derby.

The match kicks-off at 1pm and will be followed by a barbecue. There will also be the latest Development Fund draw and the presentation of the June Player of the Month award which has been kindly sponsored by Mackenzie Mackenzie & Associates.

End of an era as Gannaway goes away


Mark Gannaway played his first match for Lymington as an Under 12 colt back in 1983. Since then he has represented the club in hundreds of matches (even the most conservative estimate would put that total in excess of 600 games) and has been a loyal committee member since 1995. Therefore it was with great sadness that Meg recently announced his decision to leave Lymington Cricket Club, due principally to a new teaching post in Basingstoke which has seen him relocate to the north of the county.

Birthday boys put Lymo into semi-finals
Craig O'Shannessy found the perfect way to celebrate his 26th birthday by taking a hat-trick as Lymington cruised into the semi-finals of the Presidents Cup. The rampant Aussie's triple strike - all clean bowled - helped restrict Paultons to 108 before Tommy Barton, who only last week celebrated his 16th birthday, smashed a rapid 47 to secure a comfortable 8 wicket victory.

Lymington now host neighbours Pylewell Park next Monday with the winners taking on Cadnam in the final at New Milton on July 11th.

1st v OTs & Romsey match report

17 Jun 08

 Josh's half century lightens the gloom

A maiden Third XI half century from 14 year old Josh Thacker was the only bright spot on an otherwise dismal Saturday for Lymington Cricket Club. Thacker's 50 wasn't enough to save the Thirds from another defeat, while the seconds suffered a 6 run loss in a low scoring encounter at Portchester.

The real drama came at the Sports Ground where Lymington First XI's four match unbeaten run ended with a frantic one wicket defeat against OTs & Romsey. Lymington's 206 all out seemed to be more than ample as OT's slumped to 82 for 7 in the face of another fine opening spell from Craig O'Shannessy (4-18). But an inspired Colin Morris turned the match on its head with a brutal 76 which took OTs to within 15 runs of victory. However, wickets for Tom Myatt and Tommy Barton kept the match on a knife-edge before the visitors' last pair levelled the scores off the penultimate ball.

The final ball of the match was then straight driven for four to complete a remarkable and most unlikely one wicket win for a jubilant OTs side.

Tommy guns down Purbrook as Lymo go second

A four wicket haul from Tommy Barton helped Lymington record a 73 run victory at Purbook. Tommy's devastating spell of 4-10 reduced the home side to 83 all out in reply to Lymington's 155 (O'Shannessy 31). The victory - Lymington's fourth in a row - lifts Adie Hunt's side into second place above Ventnor who suffered a shock 8 wicket defeat against Havant. Adie's match report

Jim Stevenson's classy half century wasn't enough to save Lymington Second XI from a third consecutive defeat. But the match went right to the wire as visitors Mudeford, chasing Lymington's 177, recorded a nailbiting one wicket victory.

Tim Nobel

 

 

There was still no joy for the Third XI who fell to another heavy defeat against Burley. At least there were continuing signs of improvement in the batting form of Damian Jayasinghe and Tim Noble (pictured) who guided Lymington to 154 for 5 in response to Burley's 265 for 3.

Morgan MagicMagic Morgan helps Lymington go third

A superb 88 not out from player/coach Morgan Rushbrook provided the impetus for Lymington to win their third match in a row and climb up to third place in the SPL Division 2 table.
Ably assisted by a revitalised Marty Hunt (48), Rushbrook's well timed innings enabled Lymington to post 226 for 6, a total that was well beyond opponents Burridge once Craig O'Shannessy (3-26) had helped reduce the visitors to 27 for 4. Two wickets apiece from Tommy Barton and Ollie Kelly finished off the tail as Burridge were dismissed for 126. Match report

A four wicket haul from Will Thorp and an unbeaten 48 from Jim Lowe were the only crumbs of comfort from a 59 run defeat for Lymington Second XI at Fawley.

The Third XI's visit to Southampton Travellers was cancelled due to a waterlogged pitch, while Sunday's friendly against the Singh XI at the Sports Ground was also postponed as the visitors were unable to raise a side.

JamieFairytale for Jamie as Lymo make it two wins on the bounce
Lymington newboy Jamie Harvey notched up his maiden Southern Premier League half century as Lymo defeated Havant Seconds by 121 runs at Havant Park. Having been plucked from South Wilts Third XI after 20 years with the Salisbury club, Jamie could be forgiven for displaying the widest grin in all of Hampshire (and Wiltshire) as he scored 51 to help his new club reach 252 for 7. Craig O'Shannessy enhanced his growing reputation as a genuine all-rounder with 41 off just 15 balls before ripping out the Havant top order, ending with figures of 4 for 14. Tommy Barton also chipped in with 3 for 24 as the home side were bowled out for 131. match report with lots of photos

The Second XI's winning start to the season was ended by Flamingos at the Sports Ground while the Thirds lost again despite 47 from young Timmy Noble.

Lymo sneak home - by Hook or by crook!

craig get a hat trick
Hat-trick hero Craig O'Shannessy displays the match ball

Despite a five wicket haul - including a hat-trick - by Craig O'Shannessy, Lymington almost contrived to lose their SPL match against Hook & Newnham. Craig's wickets helped restrict the visitors to 171 from a rain reduced 44 overs. Lymo appeared to be cruising to victory before a mid-order wobble saw them collapse to 163 for 8 with three overs remaining. However, Tommy Barton broke Hook hearts by smashing the final ball of the 42nd over for a mighty six over mid-wicket, and Mark Newton duly wrapped up the victory in the penultimate over. Adie's match report

The Second XI enjoyed a similarly narrow two wicket victory at Bedhampton where tailender Tony Thorp's runs proved crucial. Sadly, there was no such joy for the Third XI who were crushed by seven wickets at New Milton.


There was yet more excitement on Sunday as Lymington tied their Forest Cup Twenty-20 match at Swan Green. Tommy Barton launched several balls across the A35 before retiring on 35 as Lymington gave chase to the home side's 188 for 6. Christian Pain also retired, and it looked as though Nicky Elliott's late cameo innings was enough to see Lymington home. But, in a dramatic final over, Lee Moors fell attempting a suicidal run out, leaving Geoff Renshaw and 13 year old Kieran Moors with the task of scoring five from the final three balls. Renners steered the first ball past the keeper for 4, but was sadly run out attempting a match-winning single from the last ball of the match to leave the scores level.

25 Apr 08 Success for Sam

Lymington's 2007 overseas player Sam Raphael had a successful return to Australia over the winter. The popular opening batsman who scored over 500 league runs for Lymington last summer helped his Adelaide Buffaloes club reach the end of season play-offs where they unfortunately lost to eventual champions Woodville in the preliminary final. However, at the end of season awards Sam received the prestigious Talbot Smith Fielding Trophy for being the best fielder in the entire league.

Sam won't be returning to England this summer as he'll be studying hard at university, but you can read all about Sam's time at Lymington in the brand new 2008 club handbook which should be dropping through members' letterboxes any day now. Also in the handbook are articles on Robin Goff, Craig O'Shannessy and the club's bicentenary celebrations, not to mention Larry the Lark's exclusive thoughts on world terrorism and the contents of the New Milton water Tower, and much, much more. 2008 fixture cards and news of a major sponsorship deal for the club should also be arriving with the handbooks.

More contributors needed
With the main writer and contributor to this website otherwise occupied over the past few weeks, the lack of new articles appearing on this website has highlighted the fact that we desperately need new contributors. If you've got anything interesting to report about the club, or any other relevant cricketing matter, please send it to the webmaster Steve Scott at steve.scott@farsite.co.uk. With the new season fast approaching it is imperative that match reports for every club fixture are sent both to this website and the Lymington Times. Naturally the club reserves the right not to publish anything deemed racist, sexist etc.

Rain curtails season opener
Adie Hunt and Neil Trestrail both got their seasons off to a flying start with half centuries before rain cut short Lymington's first match of the season at Bashley. Lymo had reached 141 for 5 from 27 overs when the match was abandoned. Lymington's next pre-season friendly is at South Wilts on Saturday April 26th when newly arrived overseas player Craig O'Shannessy is expected to make his debut.

CraigOverseas player arrives
Lymington are pleased to annouce the arrival of Australian Craig O'Shannessy as their overseas player for 2008. Craig was recommended to the club by former Lymington favourite Tim Smith who is director of cricket at the same Sydney Cricket Club which gave us Karl Whatham and the legendary Pete Smith. Craig is predominantly a pace bowler who bats a bit, and has taken an impressive 90 wickets in the past three seasons in the ultra-competitive Sydney first grade competition.We wish Craig the best of luck in his time with Lymington Cricket Club.

 

 

 

 

New coach in fine form
Lymington's recently appointed club coach Morgan Rushbrook has begun the season in good form, taking 3 for 52 for his Cardiff UCCE side in their match against Hampshire at the Rose Bowl. Morgan grabbed the wickets of former England batsman John Crawley for 36, plus Chris Tremlett and Liam Dawson as the hosts were restricted to 249 for 8. The students were 10 for 1 in reply before rain halted play.

A cup!First silverware of 2008 for Lymo
An impressive all round display from Christian Pain saw Lymington carry off the New Forest Indoor Knockout Trophy for the first time. They beat Fawley by two wickets in a low scoring final. With the Hunt brothers handicapped by injuries sustained in the semi-final win over Bashley, Lymington did well to restrict holders Fawley to 90 for 5. Pain removed the prolific Andy Parratt courtesy of a fine return catch, and not even a gritty innings from Steve Rice could help the Oilers post anything like a competitive total.

To their credit, Fawley battled back, dismissing Simon Naylor in the first over and soon taking two more wickets. Pain and Marty Hunt stabilised the innings, but when the latter fell in the 10th over, 27 more runs were still required. However, Pain (35 not out) and the hobbling Adie Hunt held their nerve and guided Lymo home with two balls to spare.

The cup win made up for a disappointing conclusion to the league season which saw Lymington finish in fourth place a massive 41 points behind champions New Milton. Ironically, Lymington were the only team to beat Milton all season.

Lymington appoint new player/coach

Lymington Cricket Club is pleased to announce the appointment of Morgan Rushbrook as player/coach for the 2008 season. The twenty-three year old, who holds a degree in Sports Coaching from the University of Wales Institute Cardiff (UWIC)- and has gone on to undertake a Masters Degree in Coaching Science at UWIC - is currently coaching for the Cricket Board of Wales. He will be charged with assisting the development of both senior and junior players at Lymington, on his return from University. More on Morgan

Last chance saloon for Lymo indoors
Lymington's hopes of winning the New Forest Indoor title took a huge knock when they were soundly defeated by Bashley Seconds. Hunt and Barker gave Lymington a decent start, both retiring on 25, but the following batsmen failed to capitalise and the final total of 115 was a little disappointing. Although Hunt removed Lilley early on, it was to be Lymo's only success as Friedman, Taylor and Prince all punished some lacklustre bowling and Bash cruised home to a 5 wicket victory. Lymington now must win their final two matches to stand any chance of taking the title. Their penultimate fixture is against Bashley Firsts on March 2nd at 4pm.

Meanwhile, Lymington Seconds completed their fixtures with a resounding defeat by table toppers Sway. Jim Lowe (27no) was the mainstay of Lymington's disappointing 95 for 3 which was never likely to be enough as Sway reached their target with 9 balls to spare. 16 year old Jacob Leigh bowled well on his indoor debut.

Presentation Evening - time to dig out those dancing shoes!
Lymington's annual presentation evening will take place on Saturday April 5th at the Walhampton Arms. There will be a change of format this year with the traditional sit down meal and speaker being replaced (for one year only) by a top-notch buffet and disco. Further details and ticket applications will be sent out to club members in due course.

Mathematical blunder helps Lymo reach semi-finals

The 2008 Lymington C.C. March Golf Tournament

The tenth Lymington Cricket Club Spring Golf Tournament takes place at Barton-on-Sea golf club during the Easter week on Wednesday 26th March 2008.. Over the past ten years, thanks to member's participation and the hard work of the tournament organisers, this golf day has raised thousands of pounds towards club funds.

The fruits of all our labours can be seen at Lymington Sports Ground which now boasts some of the area's best training facilities for both senior members and the club's thriving junior section. The proceeds from the Tournament have also been crucial in the purchasing of new sightscreens, covers, a motor-roller, and an electronic scoreboard which have are been a benefit to senior and junior members alike.

Lymo march on indoors
Lymington survived a last over scare to defeat Paultons by 9 runs to maintain their New Forest Indoor League title challenge.

With Christian Pain suffering a rare failure with the bat and with Simon Naylor unavailable, runs were not easy to come by against an accurate Paultons' bowling attack. And although Bryn Darbyshire (36no), Adie Hunt (22) and Adam Darbyshire (22no) all batted well, the run rate rarely crept above 8 an over. However, the Darbyshire brothers saved the best until last, and the 19 runs they slogged off the final over were to prove crucial as Lymington totalled 113 for 4.

Opener Peter Lamb struck a swift 26no, but some good bowling from Pain and Adam Darbyshire kept a tight reign on the Paultons' reply. Going into the final over Paultons required an improbable 23 runs for victory and two dot balls from Hunt looked to have sealed the win. However Graham Pike then lashed the next two balls for 6 to prompt a few nervous glances at the scoreboard. But Hunt kept his nerve to concede just two more runs as Lymo ran out winners by 9 runs.

Three wins from Lymington's final three matches could seal the title, although two of those matches are against fellow championship hopefuls Bashley and Hythe & Dibden. This Sunday (27th January) Lymo meet Paultons again in the quarter finals of the cup. The match kicks off at 7pm.

Lymington Seconds continued their recent revival with a victory over a youthful Bransgore side. Neil Trestrail rolled back the years with 41no as Lymington scored an impressive 141 for 2 (Scott Tapper 25, Jim Lowe 26no). Bransgore were then restricted to 124 for 4 with Cox scoring 44 and Peter Tapper and Lewis Williams both taking two wickets for Lymo.

 PCA top job for ex-Lymington batsman
Former Lymington star Sean Morris has become the new chief executive of the Professional Cricketers Association. Sean, who scored more than 1,800 First Class runs for Hampshire including a career-best 174 against Nottinghamshire, takes over from Richard Bevan who has taken the same role with football's League Managers Association. The PCA - the representative body for past and present first-class cricketers - has also elected Sir Ian Botham as its new President.

Sean Morris joined Lymington in 1988 after scoring five centuries for his Stowe school side. He immediately showed his undoubted class with 149 in a friendly fixture against Lyndhurst, and in 1990 scored a brilliant match-winning 135 against Bournemouth in the Southern League. Sean's family still live locally, and only last season he popped in to the Sports Ground to check on his former club's progress.

 

Lymo victory sealed with a Kish
Christian ‘Kish' Pain continued his awesome run of form indoors with an unbeaten half century as Lymington demolished Ringwood in their latest New Forest Indoor League match. Pain was ably assisted by Adie Hunt, Adam Darbyshire and the newly-engaged Simon Naylor, all of whom retired as Lymington totalled 165 for 1. Ringwood were always behind the run rate and were restricted to just 103 with Hunt taking two of the three wickets to fall.

Lymington Seconds recorded an even more convincing victory after smashing 193 against five-man Milford with Trevor Phillips, Neil Trestrail, Peter Tapper and Jim Lowe all retiring on 25 or more. The sorry Seasiders, including former Lymington child prodigy Will Thorp, mustered just 78 in reply.

 Simon finally 'Nayls' his girl!
Simon Naylor's longtime girlfriend Jane received an unexpected Christmas present when Simon finally took the plunge and proposed to her on Christmas Eve.

Ironically for someone who attends at least twenty weddings a year, Nayls has steadfastly refused to make an honest woman of Jane until now. So what brought about the sudden change of heart? Some suggested it was the sherry talking, while some even thought it was maybe down to the rumour that Jane was about to run off with Wobbly Wharton instead. But Simon exclusivey revealed the real reason to www.lymingtoncc.com: "It's simply because I love her. And because there's a half price sale on at Elizabeth Duke at Argos!"

2008 League fixtures announced

Lymington have been handed a challenging start to the 2008 SPL season with fixtures against last season's top two sides Ventnor and Rowledge. The opening match on May 3rd sees Lymo make the long trip to Rowledge, while a week later reigning champions Ventnor visit the Sports Ground. Lymington then entertain newly promoted Hook & Newnham before travelling to Havant. The long-awaited local derby against New Milton - the first Southern league clash between the two sides since 1999 - takes place at the Sports Ground on June 28th with the reverse fixture at Fernhill ending the season on August 30th. However, the two clubs won't have to wait until late June to face each other as they have been drawn together in the first round of the revamped Southern Electric Cup. All fixtures in this competition will now be played on Sunday afternoons rather than the traditional midweek evenings, although the official SPL website did at least attempt to retain a degree of tradition by stating that the New Milton v Lymington clash would be played at Ashley - a ground that Milton vacated a number of years ago!

The Second XI open their season with away matches at Calmore on May 10th and Bedhampton a week later before playing their first home match against Flamingo on May 24th. They end their league campaign on August 30th with a home encounter with newly promoted local rivals Pylewell Park. The Third XI, meanwhile, host Mudeford in their first fixture on May 10th and then make the short trip to New Milton a week later.

The 2008 Southern Premier League fixtures can be found at www.southernpremierleague.com and Hampshire League fixtures at www.hantscl.co.uk.
