Lymington arrived at Bashley and asked to bat first on the artificial wicket. All the Lymington batsmen chipped in to the total, M. McGrigor(37),B.Howard-Allen(22) and F.Ambrose(18) being the highest scorers.The Bashley side bowled well against the more experienced Lymington team, with 3 wickets taken, but were unable to curb the runs.
Lymington finished their innings on a huge 360.
The Lymington bowlers amassed 18 wickets including 6 run outs as the Bashley side gamely chased the total. B. Howard-Allen achieved a hatrick and O. Marshall's accurate leg-spin bowling again proved too much for the batsmen.
Credit should go to the whole Bashley team for persevering against he more experienced Lymington side.
