Hampshire Cricket League - County 2

Purbrook 198 all out - Lymington 199 for 5

Lymington Back To Winning Ways

Lymington travelled to Purbrook without their opening stalwart, Mark Jackson, who sadly played his last game for three years at home the previous week. However, Lymington were keen to get back to winning ways having suffered a recent dip in form. Lymington lost the toss and were asked to bowl on a slow, but true track. Purbrook got off to a solid start, with the openers putting on 136 for the first wicket in 33 overs. Jamie Harvey (5 for 40) getting turn, pace and bounce in equal measure, to go through the middle order like a knife through lard. Alex Treagus also contributed valuable wickets finishing with 3 for 27 as Purbrook were dismissed off the last ball for 198. A very good come back for Lymington.

The visitors began their reply in solid fashion with Tom Thorpe (36) and Jamie Harvey (62) looking comfortable as Lymington moved purposefully towards their target. When Tom fell, Scotty Tapper, fresh from his 125 the previous week, picked up where he left off with a fluent 40, with the boundary frequently peppered. Jim Stephenson (35) and Neil Trestrail (25) kept up the pace of the advance, with Lymington eventually reaching their target in comfortable fashion, for the loss of just 5 wickets with seven overs to spare. A memorable day for Jamie Harvey with five wickets and 62 runs. Lymington will look to keep up momentum as they push for a top five finish in County 2.
