Lymington travelled to Ringwood and after losing the toss were put into bat. But after 18 overs and 5 wickets down Lymington thought they were going to have one of those days. On to the wicket with bat in hand strode P Tapper (79) who hit 6 sixes and 5 fours and with the help of T Noble (34) put on a partnership of 116. Best of the bowling was R Philpott 3 for 27. Lymington ended their innings on 227 for 8.
Ringwoods openers R Percy (62) and S Bailey (30) made an excellent start and keeping well ahead of the run rate and some untidy fielding by Lymington were looking well set to spoil Lymingtons day. But perserverance from J Thacker 3 for 35 and P Tapper 4 for 42 and finally a catch taken Ringwood were bowled out for 162.
