Following heavy rain on the previous two days it was obvious that winning the toss was crucial to the result and C de Weymarn duly obliged for the home team and put Lymington in to bat. The wicket was doing all sorts of things but Lymington stuck to their task as well as they could and totaled 143 in 45.1 overs which has not been anywhere near the lowest score at Chapel Gate this season. Rob Lammiman and Tommy Barton both scored 25, Glyn Treagus (23), Morgan Rushbrook (17) and Cameron Grierson (13). Umpire Steve Bunn confirmed that the ball from seamer E.Denham that bowled Cameron Grierson had pitched at least six inches outside the off stump, had been left, and knocked back the middle stump ! Best of the Bournemouth bowlers were E.Denham (3-35) and B.Lawes (2-31). Metcalfe and Kidner also got a wicket each.
Although Simon Cook dispatched Park in the first over, the wicket was getting easier as the afternoon progressed. Lymington had some hope when Bournemouth's fourth wicket fell at 89 as theirs had only gone at 92, but S.Watkins (52*) and skipper de Weymarn (16*) saw the home team to victory. Best of the Lymington bowlers were Morgan Rushbrook (2-28), Simon Cook (10-3-16-1) and Glyn Treagus (1-26).
Due to the weather, the two matches against teams that Lymington might have beaten, namely St Cross and Andover were washed out which leaves them in a tricky position with the three matches to come being against Havant and South Wilts at home and Totton & Eling away.
