L.Prittipaul won the toss for prospective champions Havant and elected to bat on a fairly firm hard wicket. The visitors lost their first two wickets with under 50 on the board but recovered through Walker (56) and Prittipaul (44) to 126 before the third wicket fell. Lymington's bowlers then had a good spell and Havant lost their next four wickets for 19 runs. Christian Pain (3-53) spearheaded the Lymington fight back. After the sixth wicket fell for 145 in the 36th over the visitor's lower order took control of the match and added a further 112 in the final thirteen overs thanks to a fine 62 not out by Thistle, ending up at 257-8. Apart from Christian Pain Marc O'Sullivan took 2-37 whilst Treagus, Freeman and Rushbrook each took a wicket.
Lymington's reply started well, and the new Lymington opening pair of Glyn Treagus (13) and Rob Lammiman (41) put on 45 for the first wicket. Thereafter there was a bad collapse and the next five wickets had fallen by the time the score reached 70, three of the home team's better batsmen having failed to score. There was a mini revival by Ollie Kelly (24) and Simon Cook (28) but Lymington were all out for 147 in the 45th over to give Havant victory by 110 runs and maximum points. The outstanding bowler for Havant was C.Morgan (10-1-16-6) who was well supported by S.Ransley (2-21) whilst Thistle and Ingram got a wicket a-piece.
Lymington will need to do better in their final two matches against Totton & Eling and South Wilts.
