Lymo get better and better
On an unexpectedly bright morning Lymington lost the toss and were asked to bat by Hythe and Dibden. Captain Marshall(3) and Drodge(11) were first up and made a confident start against some good bowling.The second pair of Hills(6) and Ambrose(14) accelerated the run rate and again not losing a wicket.Next were Howland(17) and Howard-Allen(6) who stepped up the scoring with the loss of only one wicket from Keats.The final pair of A.McGrigor(12) and M. McGrigor(17) caused more pressure on the fielders as they ran seemingly impossible singles,finishing the innings on 324.
The Lymington bowlers were all on fine form and with M. McGrigor behind the stumps, the Hythe and Dibden batsmen struggled to score initially. However with the introduction of the final pair Kelly(18) and Keats, Lymington fielders had to be on their toes,Kelly scoring 4 boundaries and finishing the innings on 216. With wickets from Marshall,Drodge,Hills,Howland,A.McGrigor and two maidens from Ambrose Hythe and Dibden found the Lymington bowling too strong to challenge the high target set.
