Bob Iles has passed away

I'm really sorry to have to break this terrible news, Bob Iles has suffered a heart attack on Christmas Day and had passed away.

Bob Iles

Condolences have been passed on from everyone at Lymington CC to Joan and the family who are understandably devastated. I'll try to let everyone know when the funeral will be held as I'm sure the whole club will want to pay their respects to a larger than life character who brightened up everyone's lives and will be terribly missed by all of us at the Sports Ground.

If you would like to send a card or write to Joan, the address is 16 Winchester Road, New Milton, Hants BH25 4JG.

Indoor team beaten by Paultons

We unfortunately lost on Sunday – a heavy defeat to an experienced Paultons side. We batted first and made 105 in the face of some excellent bowling. They got the runs comfortably and lost only one wicket on the way to victory.

We are a very young side – the last game we had four players under the age of 18, and have only lost one league game. We're still in the cup as well. A very creditable performance so far.

Twenty20 news- It's Andover first up

Lymington will begin their defence of the Southern Electric Twenty 20 Cup with a home tie against Andover in the first round of next summer's competition.
The teams will lock horns at the Sports Ground on Sunday June 13, with Lymington favourites to progress through to the second round.
A crowd of almost 1,000 watched as Christian Pain's side lifted the trophy under the Rose Bowl floodlights last August, comfortably beating Ventnor in the final.
Andover have since been relegated from the ECB Southern Electric Premier League and have lost the services of the influential Miller brothers, who are being linked with Havant.
Bashley (Rydal) also get home advantage in round one and host Old Tauntonians & Romsey at the BCG.
Their tie will be played two weeks earlier than Lymington, due to Bashley's possible involvement in the ECB National Club Championship on June 13.
Not so fortunate are New Milton or Paultons, who are both drawn away.
New Milton go to Division 2 rivals Hursley Park, with Paultons - this summer's Division 3 champions - visiting Sparsholt.
Calmore Sports, newly promoted from the Hampshire League, entertain ECB Cockspur Twenty20 Cup winners Bournemouth at Loperwood Park.
The first round ties to be played on either May 30 or June 13 (actual dates to be advised) are: Bashley (Rydal) v Old Tauntonians & Romsey, Burridge v Fair Oak, Calmore Sports v Bournemouth, Hambledon v Havant, Hook & Newnham Basics v Hartley Wintney, Hursley Park v New Milton, Lymington v Andover, Portsmouth & Southsea v Fareham & Crofton, Rowledge v Liphook & Ripsley, South Wilts v Easton & Martyr Worthy, Sparsholt v Paultons, St Cross Symondians v Alton, Tichborne Park v Trojans, Totton & Eling v Gosport Borough, United Services v Portsmouth, Ventnor v Sarisbury Athletic.

AGM report: on-field success tempered by disappointing pitch markings

Lymington's 2009 annual general meeting was held recently at the Walhampton Arms. Chairman Peter Tapper was happy to report a successful season playingwise, with the club holding its own in its first season in SEPCL 1 and winning the Twenty20 competition on a memorable night at the Rose Bowl. The Third XI also celebrated a league title and the playing strength in general appeared to be improving, so much so that the Chairman indicated the club's intention to re-introduce a Fourth XI in 2011.

However, Lymington's on-field success was tempered somewhat by the Sports Ground's SEPCL pitch ratings for the 2009 season. After years of consistently finishing near the top of the Southern Premier League ground gradings, the past season's markings given by opposition captains plummeted to such an extent that the Sports Ground finished a hugely disappointing 34th out of 38 teams, prompting an automatic warning from the league. While nobody at the meeting could deny that the pitches had not been as hard and fast as previous seasons, President Brian Hobby admitted that he was baffled by the marks, pointing out that average run totals at the Sports Ground in 2009 were actually higher than at the home grounds of many of the club's fellow Division One sides. As if to confuse matters, the very same Sports Ground pitch was meanwhile ranked as the best ground in Hampshire League Division Two and 5th in the entire Hampshire Cricket League! Which leads us to conclude that either:

a) the Sports Ground pitches only play well every other week,
b) the SEPCL captains are very harsh, or
c) the Hampshire League captains are very lenient!


Whatever the answer, the club has already taken steps to remedy the situation and is working closely with the Town Council to return the ground to its previous high standards.

On a brighter note, Lee Moors reported another good year for the colts and was pleased to announce the acquisition of more coaches for next season. Four of the club's young players are currently in the county development squads.

Despite the country's current economic woes, club treasurer Jerry Holt was able to report a fairly healthy balance book, helped as always by David Coles' sterling efforts in organising the annual corporate golf day, the club's successful Development Fund, and especially by the generosity of the club's sponsors, particularly Mackenzie & Mackenzie and Lynx Sports Management. As a result, the treasurer was able to recommend a freeze on match fees and subscriptions for the 2010 season. The bar also made a sizeable profit, helped by a season of drier Saturdays (only one First XI home match was lost to the weather) and by bumper attendances for the club's Twenty20 semi final and Presidents Day. The issue of the Third XI's opposition rarely coming back to the Sports Ground for a drink after matches at Woodside was raised, although it was rightly pointed out that many of the matches had finished by 4pm and that sides who had been bowled out for less than 50 weren't generally in the mood for socialising!

Jim Stevenson (fixture secretary) and Tony Thorp (chairman of selectors) were elected to the committee, while Tony Jenkin sadly stepped down and was duly thanked by all for his sterling service to the club over many decades. Former players Jim Lowe, John Austin and Chris James were voted in as vice presidents, while on the playing side Simon Naylor was elected as new Second XI captain for next season.

Hunt is on for overseas player

The Hunts

No-one can accuse Lymington of lacking effort when it comes to seeking out new overseas players. Just recently Adie Hunt travelled 12,000 miles to Australia to report on several likely candidates... and took his brother, sister and parents with him as well! As well as eyeing up some talented Aussie cricketers, the Hunt family also caught up with several former club players, including Tim Smith, Craig O'Shannessy and Pete Smith in Sydney, Sam Raphael in Adelaide, and Aaron Heal and Matt Bowdler in Perth. The Hunts had a whale of a time and were overwhelmed by the hospitality shown by their hosts, although not as overwhelmed as father Chris was during the stopover when he discovered that a round of Singapore Slings at the famous Raffles Hotel was costing him £65! "I couldn't believe it," said the little fellah, "but I had to pay it or we'd have been Singapore Slung out!"

There are literally hundreds of photos of the Hunt's Antipodean expedition on Facebook so give Adie a poke right now.

Lymington Win In Style

The young Lymington side notched up a very impressive victory in a low scoring encounter with local side Pywell Park. Batting first, good fielding and some dodgy running cost Lymington dear as Naylor, Thacker and Grierson fell cheaply. However, Pixie Elliott batted with wisdom well beyond his years to steer Lymington to a defendable, if below par, total of 98.

In order for Lymington to win, the bowling and fielding had to be first class. Josh Thacker got Lymo off to a flying start with two wickets in the first over. The young waterside paceman eventually finishing with highly creditable figures of 3 for 26. The bowlers were ably supported by some excellent catching, first by Grierson behind the stumps, and most notably from Josh Bowing with a diving effort in the gully. Lymington were suddenly right back in it. Simon Naylor (1 for 4 off 2) started with a wicket maiden and despite some lusty blows from Doe (56) it was the wily old Chairman who wrapped things up with a wicket with his first ball. Lymington emerging with a memorable victory by 18 runs.

Lymington skip over Clay Hill

Lymington's young side were full of confidence after a convincing league win over Hythe and Dibden the week before. Put in to bat, Josh Thacker (26 retired) continued his fine form, and in partnership with Simon Naylor (25 retired) the two put on 94 in the first six overs. Cameron Grierson (25 retired) continued where the openers left off as Lymington posted 167 off 12 overs, for the loss of just two wickets. Extras played a large role, with Clay Hill notching up 74 wides in the Lymington total.

Lymington's opening bowling attack of Pixie Elliot, and Josh Bowering started well, with only S Thompson (41) making a meaningful contribution for Clay Hill. Pix finished as the pick of the bowlers with 4 for 22 off 3, with Cameron taking two good catches. Clay Hill eventually finishing on 73 all out at the end of the sixth over. A convincing win for the young Lymington team. Next week sees them back in league action against Pywell Park.

Golf Day
The 22nd Lymington Cricket Club annual golf day took place at the delightful Brokenhurst Manor Golf Club on Thursday 24th September in balmy conditions. The weather was superb and the course was in tip top shape & our thanks to Kevan Glass & his team for the course preparation. The defending champion Adrian Hunt failed in his bid to become the first player to successfully defend winning this sought after trophy, however Adie with the help of a caddy (unheard of in this competition) managed 33 points and made a valiant effort to win. The winner was Tony Webb who became not only the oldest player to win but the first left hander to claim our trophy after 16 previous efforts had failed. Tony scored 36 points on his home course to pip Bryn Derbyshire by one point. Glyn Treagus with 34 took third place with Simon Naylor surprising everybody with the same score just managed to push the Chairman into fourth slot. For the first time ever our overseas player, Simon Cook, played in the event. Simon had a very successful season taking 32 wickets & finishing up as runner up in the SEPL bowling table which was 8 more than his points tally in the golf.

Our thanks to David Coles for the organisation and to Brokenhurst for providing such a good course.

John Tregear
Lymington Cricket Club are sad to announce that John Tregear, a staunch supporter of our Club has passed away at the age of 81. John was a very familiar face at our ground with his floppy hat as his signature tune. John lived just around the corner in St Thomas's Park and returned several balls that finished up in his garden. As it was a straight drive into his garden it ruled out most of our players. John had been in poor health of late and we did not see him this year but he was always very polite and took a great interest in our fortunes and loved to watch the cricket from various points of the ground especially at the tins end.

Third XI are champions!
Lymington Third XI have won Hants County League South West Division Four. They cruised to a 9 wicket win over Alderholt II at Woodside in their final match with Damian Jayasinghe scoring a half century. Captain Lee Moors was rightly proud of his team who lost just once all season and deservedly clinched the title.

Just Champion! - Captain Lee Moors cracks open the Champagne

Presidents Match

The Lymington Cricket Club Annual Presidents match sponsored by Pimms was played at the Sports Ground in glorious weather on a belter of a track. Brian Hobby was our host as two competitive sides met for the annual bragging rites. Lymington batted first and young Felix Ambrose made batting look very easy with 19 delightful runs but succumbed to the wily leg breaks of Will Hayward. In fact Lymington struggled for runs as Steve Andrew not only rolled back the years but rolled over messrs Rushbrook/Barton & Simon Cook in the space of four overs helped by a super catch at mid wicket by Scott Tapper. Fortunately Cameron Grierson 52 chose the occasion to play a sensible innings well supported by Mark O'Sullivan 24 and the final total of 213 at least made a game of it as the Presidents X1 eyed up the chance of an early victory plus plenty of Pimms. Jon Hardy 14 & Steve Andrew 14 started the chase but both fell to young Josh Thacker who also took out Peter Tapper after playing his only two cover drives of the season. However our newest Life Member Neil Trestrail rose to the situation and merrily blasted 44 and along with Gavin Bailiff from Bashley with 29 hoisted the score towards the target. Martin Hunt played a little cameo of 34 and finished the game with a minnow six into the gallery as the Presidents X1 sneaked home by one wicket.

The match came on the back of an excellent week for Lymington with not only the 1st X1 winning the SEPL 20/20 but our 3rd X1 captained by Lee Moors have secured promotion from Regional 4 South West.

18 Aug 09 More woe for the Ones; Thirds close in on promotion
Lymington were well beaten by champions-elect Havant in their penultimate home game. Chasing the visitors' sizeable 257-8, Lymo collapsed from 65-1 to 70-6 and were eventually dismissed for just 147. The Second XI returned to winning ways with a 5 wicket win at Purbrook with Jamie Harvey grabbing 5 wickets. Lee Moors' Third XI remain top of their division with just two to play after a 3 wicket win at Burley. The home side totaled 188 before Tim Beer's half century set Lymo on their way to victory. On Sunday at the Sports Ground Bashley cruised to a 6 wicket victory in the annual Dale Middleton Memorial match.

Lymington gear up for big night at the Rose Bowl
Captain Christian Pain reports no new injuries ahead of his side's massive Twenty20 final at the Rose Bowl on Wednesday (7pm). Key bowler Simon Cook has recovered from the knee injury that prevented him from bowling in the semi-final win over Portsmouth, so apart from Bryn Darbyshire who suffered serious facial injuries during that match, Lymington have a full squad to pick from.

Lymington will be backed by a large traveling contingent, and with opponents Ventnor reportedly bringing 200 supporters across The Solent, it should be a noisy night out at the Rose Bowl. Minibuses will be leaving the Sports Ground at 5pm, a few spaces may still be available - ring Trevor on 07812 699650 for more details. A special souvenir programme is being produced for the match. The publication will include articles on some of the tastier previous Lymington v Ventnor encounters plus pen pictures of both teams and a run down on how the sides reached the final. It can be bought on the night at the Rose Bowl for just £1 with all proceeds going to Bowel Cancel Uk, one of the late Terry Trodd's favoured charities.

Remember, remember, whatever you do,
if you're going to the Rose Bowl wear yellow and blue!

Thirds only ones to win; and it's the end of an era at the Sports Ground

Lymington's poor run of form in the SPL continued with a 6 wicket defeat at Bournemouth, match report

The Seconds fared little better, going down to a 4 wicket defeat against Flamingos at the Sports Ground despite 65 from Tom Thorp. Better news at Woodside where Scotty Tapper hit a sparkling 125 and Luigi Di Maria took 7-24 including a hat-trick as the Third XI routed Centurians by 212 runs. match report

Sadly, the match at the Sports Ground saw Mark Jackson probably play his last innings for the club after being posted to Holland for three years as part of a NATO attachment. The prolific left handed opening batsman made his debut for Lymington in 1983 and has since scored thousands of runs for the First, Second and Third XIs. His dogged determination and incredible powers of concentration saved the Second XI on numerous occasions over the years, and he topped the batting averages year after year. It was no co-incidence that when Jacko was posted to Afghanistan last summer, the team's fortunes nosedived resulting in relegation.

Jacko receives a guard of honour

Jacko's highest score for Lymington was 126 against Leckford in 2001. He was the first batsman to score a century at Woodside, and in 2007 also became the very first player to register a hundred on the new electronic scoreboard at the Sports Ground. Strangely enough, it was an incident with the ball rather than the bat that provided Jacko with one of his most memorable moments. In an inter-club match he had to bowl at Peter Tapper. To wind the batsman up, Jacko put every fielder on the leg side boundary, and then danced with delight as Taps attempted a rare offside shot and was caught behind!

A loyal club member who made a two hour journey from London each weekend to play for the Second XI, Mark was fittingly given a guard of honour by his teammates as he took to the field for the last time. Jacko will be sorely missed at the Sports Ground and we wish him all the best in his new adventure in Holland.

Rose Bowl here we come!
Lymington overcame a spirited Portsmouth side to reach their first SEC Trophy final in eight years. In front of a large Sports Ground crowd, Lymo recovered from 51 for 5 to total 135 for 7 from their 20 overs thanks principally to Morgan Rushbrook (34), Rob Lammiman (38) and Christian Pain (27no). Glyn Treagus and James Lucy then took three wickets each to help dismiss their Division Three opponents for 88. However, the victory was soured by a dreadful injury to Bryn Darbyshire who was struck in the face by a bouncer and was immediately taken to hospital for treatment on a broken nose and suspected fractured cheekbone. Everyone at Lymington CC wishes Bryn a full and speedy recovery. Match report and photos

Rob Lammiman's 38 hauled Lymington back into the match

The final on Wednesday August 19th (7pm start) sees Lymington face their old foes Ventnor under the Rose Bowl floodlights. Historically, games between the two clubs have always been highly competitive affairs, and this promises to be no different. A list will be put up in the clubhouse for those requiring transport from Lymington to the Rose Bowl for the match.

Earlier in the day a Lymington XI fell to a 5 run defeat against tourists CYPOS at Pennington with Lee Moors top scoring with 33.

All three of Lymington's league matches on Saturday were abandoned without a ball being bowled.

Big weekend ahead for Lymington
Lymington First XI will be hoping to get back to winning ways on Saturday when they entertain St Cross at the Sports Ground. St Cross, who last week hauled themselves off the bottom of the table thanks to a fine win over Totton & Eling, may well include Hampshire's Jimmy Adams who was one of the Friends Provident Cup heroes at Lord's last Saturday. The weather forecast isn't too clever for Saturday afternoon, so autograph hunters might have ample opportunity to obtain Jimmy's signature in the Sports Ground bar! The Seconds travel to lowly US Pompey, while Lee Moors will be hoping his Third XI can complete a Sway 'double' by defeating Sway Second XI in the same emphatic manner as they beat Sway Thirds last week.

On Sunday afternoon all eyes turn to the Sports Ground for the SE Twenty20 semi-final clash with Portsmouth. The prize for the winners is a match under the floodlights at the Rose Bowl (pictured) against either Ventnor or Andover. Both Lymo and Portsmouth will be wearing coloured clothing, and orange balls will replace the traditional red ones. There will be a barbecue and the bar will be open all afternoon. The official Portsmouth website states that at least two coachloads of supporters will be making the trip up the M27 for the match, so it promises to be a great atmosphere. Captain Christian Pain reports full availability, although any late team changes will be announced via Twitter! The match kicks off at 3pm - don't be late!


If you can't wait until 3pm for your Twenty20 fix, you could get over to Pennington Sports Ground in the morning where a Lymington XI face tourists Cypos in a hastily re-arranged friendly fixture. The match starts at 11am and will be finished in time for the players and spectators to leg it over to the Sports Ground for the semi-final.

Future stars shine in cup final romp
Just nine days after Lymington's mens side lifted the NFCCA President's Cup at Langley Manor, the club's stars of the future more than emulated their seniors on the same ground by romping to a massive 57 run win over Totton & Eling in the New Forest Under 13 cup final. Report and photos...

Lymo not so rosy at the Rose Bowl
Lymington slumped to their fifth Time Pennant defeat of the summer as they were heavily defeated by the Hampshire Academy at the Rose Bowl. Only Morgan Rushbrook (58) shone for Lymo who were dismissed for 163. Simon Cook added two more wickets to his growing list of victims, but Lymington couldn't prevent the County youngsters reaching their target for the loss of just 4 wickets in a little over 40 overs. match report

The Second XI fared little better at the Sports Ground where visitors Burridge recorded a 7 wicket win after bowling out a lacklustre Lymo for 154.

The Third XI, however, cruised to a 10 wicket win at Woodside where Sway were shot out for just 28, match report

Portsmouth next up as rampant Rushbrook leads Lymo into the semis
Lymington will face Portsmouth in the semi-finals of the Southern Electric Twenty20 Cup after beating Bashley by 35 runs at the BCG. Morgan Rushbrook was once again the star, smashing an unbeaten 94 as Lymo totaled 173 for 5. Simon Cook's two early strikes ensured that Bash were always unlikely to trouble Lymington's score, and although Gavin Bailiff struck a quickfire 48, the home side ended well short on 138 for 7. The draw, made live on Radio Solent, gave Lymington a home tie with Division Three side Portsmouth on Sunday August 2nd at a time yet to be confirmed. The other half of the draw presented Andover with a tricky trip to Ventnor. The final will be played under the Rose Bowl floodlights on Wednesday August 19th.

Winning draw for Lymington
Rain interruptions effectively thwarted any Lymington hopes of an outright victory over Alton in their latest SPL time-game, although Christian Pain's men were able to claim a winning draw courtesy of a marginally superior run-rate. Simon Cook and Glyn Treagus both took four Alton wickets as the visitors scored 175 for 8 from 58 overs. Morgan Rushbrook's unbeaten 54 then enabled Lymington to reach 122 for 5 from 40 overs at stumps. match report

The weather also scuppered the Second XI who fell to a last over defeat at Old Basing. Neil Trestrail (48) and Mark Jackson (46) helped Lymington total 203 for 5, but rain breaks reduced the home side's target to 145 from 26 overs. This they achieved for the loss of seven wickets with just three balls to spare despite three wickets from Marc O'Sullivan. The Third XI romped to a comfortable victory at Suttoners after dismissing the home side for just 88.

Fixture news

Lymington traveled to Andover last Saturday and almost started on two occasions. The drizzle ceased by 12pm and it looked as if it would be possible to start the match about 1230pm. This however was not to be. An early lunch was taken and it was decided to play a limited overs match before the heavy drizzle started again and play was ruled out for the day.

Lymington's SE Twenty20 Quarter Final against Bashley (Rydal) was also a victim of the weather and was called off on Sunday morning due to a waterlogged ground. This match will be played this Sunday also at Bashley. The start time is 3pm.

Lymington play Alton at home at the Sports ground this Saturday in a Time Pennant match starting at 1130am.

6 Jul 09 Heavy derby day defeat for Lymington
Lymington sank to a hugely disappointing 110 run SPL defeat in the first of three meetings with Bashley in the space of eight days. Andy Sexton's century helped Bash total 271-7 before Lymo were dismissed for 161. Tommy Barton did at least salvage a modicum of pride for Lymington who were at one point 24-4. The Isle of Wight youngster scored 56, including two sixes and nine fours, and almost inspired Lymo to salvage an unlikely draw before Bashley wrapped up the victory with just under 5 overs to spare. Lymington will be hoping for a vast improvement in their two encounters with the same opposition next Friday (in the Presidents Cup final at Langley Manor) and at the BCG next Sunday (in the Twenty20 Cup quarter finals). match report

Both the Second and Third XIs got back to winning ways after defeats last week. Josh Thacker and Simon Naylor were the stars of the Seconds' low scoring win at East Tytherly. They scored 29 and 34 respectively as Lymo crawled to 135 all out. Both players then shared five wickets to help dismiss the home side for 101 - almost a quarter of those runs coming in wides! Sleepless nights don't seem to have done Jamie Harvey's fielding any harm - the proud new father of baby Emily took four catches including a stunning one handed effort above his head!

Mark O'Sullivan celebrated his return from University with six wickets as the Third XI's opponents Ellingham were shot out for just 88 at Woodside. Damian Jayasinge (29) was the only man to fall as Lymo wrapped up a 9 wicket victory to consolidate their place at the top of HCLSW4.

Once, twice, three times it's Bashley!
The players of Lymington and Bashley may well be sick of the sight of each other by the end of next week. Not only do they meet this Saturday at the Sports Ground in the SPL, they then clash in the Presidents Cup final the following Friday at Langley Manor. Just two days later on Sunday July 12th the two clubs meet again at the BCG in the last eight of the SEC Twenty20 competition. Ironically, it's the fifth time in a row that Lymo have been drawn away in the competition, and they will be hoping for a repeat performance of last season when Craig O'Shannesy's rapid half century set Lymington on their way to a second round victory over their local rivals.

Young guns see Lymo home
Lymington pulled off one of their finest SPL victories in many a year as they defeated South Wilts by 3 wickets at Lower Bemerton. Desperate to get their season back on track following three straight defeats, Lymington dismissed the in-form hosts for just 125 with Simon Cook grabbing six wickets in a devastating pre-lunch spell in which he bowled nine maidens and conceded just eight runs. But Wiltshire minor counties bowler James Hibberd ripped out the Lymo top order to leave Christain Pain's men in all sorts of bother at 83 for 7. However, youngsters Cameron Grierson and Tommy Barton refused to buckle under the pressure, both contributing 25 not out in a match-winning stand of 43 as Lymington reached their target in the 51st over of their innings. match report

Flying.... Simon Cook

Elsewhere, both the Second and Third XI's promotion hopes suffered a setback. The Seconds lost their first match in five as they went down by 62 runs in a high scoring encounter with Shrewton at the Sports Ground. match report. The Third XI's long unbeaten run finally came to an end as they were narrowly defeated by Parley.

More drama as Lymington progress to Twenty20 quarter finals
Lymington are certainly testing the nerves of players and supporters alike! Less than 24 hours after the nailbiting win at South Wilts, Lymo sneaked a 5 run win at Hursley Park in the second round of the SEC Twenty20 Cup. Again, Lymington were rescued by the tail after a top order collapse saw the team slump to 73 for 8. This time it was Adie Hunt (24) and Ed Freeman who added 42 to help Lymo reach 121. Christian Pain (3-23) and Glyn Treagus (2-22) then bowled fine spells to ensure Lymington's place in the quarter finals on Sunday 12th July. match report

Help needed

Help is urgently wanted from senior players at colts training sessions on Monday and Tuesday evenings - 6.15 to 8.00pm. The more help there is, the better coaching the boys and girls will get. It is also the ideal opportunity for the colts to get to know the players from the senior teams. Remember, the colts are the future of our club.

Firsts thwarted by old boy Goldstraw
Lymington put in a battling and much improved performance against Totton & Eling at the Sports Ground, but it wasn't enough to stave off a third straight SEPCL defeat. A fine half century from Morgan Rushbrook and a gutsy 44 from Christian Pain helped Lymo to a modest 189 all out, but the visitors were reduced to 175 for 8 in reply before former Lymington player Dan Goldstraw rescued Totton with a six and two fours to wrap up a tense two wicket win. match report

The Second XI sneaked home to a hard earned two wicket win in a keenly fought local derby at New Milton. Neil Trestrail's half century was the mainstay of Lymington's 196 for 6. Pixie Eliiott and Martin Gregory then bowled superb spells at the death to restrict Milton to 188 for 9 with Gregors taking four wickets.

There's no stopping Lee Moors' Third XI who cruised to a seventh win of the season at Ringwood. New Pennington resident Peter Tapper was the hero, scoring 79 in a Lymington total of 227, and then taking 4 wickets as Ringwood were dismissed for 135. match report

Two youngsters were the stars of Sunday's narrow win over Whalers CC. Chasing the visitors' 205, 16 year old Josh Thacker and Under 13 colt Felix Ambrose both scored forties as Lymo reached their target in the final over of the match.

Champions too good for Lymington
Lymington fell to a crushing 179 run defeat at Havant in the second of their all-day matches. The reigning SEPL champions rattled up a massive 300 for 6 before bowling out Lymo for just 121 with only Glyn Treagus (52) and Simon Cook (31) putting up any resistance of note. match report

Elsewhere, the Seconds and Thirds both continued their good run of form. The Second XI, under stand-in captain Neil Trestrail, beat Hamble ASSC by 69 runs at the Sports Ground. Chris Warde (48) and Tom Thorp (47) led the way in a Lymington total of 211 for 9 before the visitors were dismissed for 142, match report. Down at Woodside the Third XI shot out Hordle for just 53 before securing a six wicket win. match report

Sunday saw the 16th playing of the Brian Rickman Memorial Match at the Sports Ground. Tom Thorp and Jim Stevenson both scored half centuries in a Lymington total of 216 for 6. The Elite replied with 208 for 9 with a gallant 10th wicket stand between Tony Thorp (43no) and Luigi Di Maria almost bringing about an unexpected victory.

Last over defeat for the First XI; comfortable wins for the Seconds and Thirds

Visitors Bournemouth dented Lymington's fine start to the season with a three wicket last-over victory in the first of the summer's all day matches. Glyn Treagus (70) and James Lucie (56) were the main contributors in Lymo's 238 all out, but Martin Miller (49) and Park (70) helped Bournemouth reach their target with Lymington just one ball away from claiming a creditable draw.

31 May 09 Full house at last for Lymo

It was a long time in coming, but for the first time in several seasons all three Lymington league sides tasted victory on the same day and the Sunday side as well.

The First XI maintained their splendid start to the season with a four wicket win at St Cross. Morgan Rushbrook's early brace of wickets set the tone for the match, and although the home side recovered from 82 for 6 to post 149, Lymo seemed to be cruising with Glyn Treagus (71) once again in imperious form. However, as is often the way, Lymington's middle order wobbled before Captain Pain and Jamie Harvey guided the visitors home with four wickets and four overs to spare.

The Seconds recorded their second win of the summer at a sweltering Sports Ground. Nicky Elliott continued his fine early season form with four wickets as visitors Hythe & Dibden totalled 207 for 9. Mark Jackson and Simon King both struck 60 as Lymington cantered to a seven wicket victory.

The Third XI made it four wins from four at Woodside thanks to a fine spell of bowling from evergreen latino Luigi Di Maria. He took 5 for 6 as Mudeford were dismissed for just 40. Lymo cruised home for the loss of just one wicket.

Cool Cookie guides Lymo home

A timely 38 not out from Simon Cook swept Lymington to victory over Hampshire Academy at the Sports Ground. Chasing the youngsters' modest 134 all out, Lymo had a good start through Glyn Treagus (36), but then collapsed to 82 for 6. But Cook (who, at 36, was at least double the age of all but one of the opposition team!) lifted the pressure with a series of sixes and fours as Lymo eased home with four wickets in hand. The win takes Lymington up into second place behind Havant after four matches. Match report

The Thirds meanwhile maintained their unbeaten record with a 126 run win over Hyde II. The youngsters continued to shine for Lee Moors' side with Josh Thacker making a fine half century as Lymo rattled up 263 before bowling out the home side for 137. Match report

Unfortunately, hopes of an elusive cleensweep of victories were dashed at Basingstoke where the Seconds were defeated by four wickets.

17 May 09

Firsts falter, but Seconds and Thirds both win

Lymington suffered their first SPL defeat of the season, going down by 44 runs at Alton. Lymo never came close to challenging Alton's 241-7 and were bowled out for 197 (Rushbrook 49). match report

Meanwhile the Second XI recorded a hard-earned 21 run win over local rivals Pylewell Park at the Sports Ground. Chris Warde emerged as the unlikely bowling hero, taking 5-29 as Pylewell were dismissed for 184 in response to Lymington's 205-5 (Dave Griffiths 72).
match report

All the weekend's drama, however, came with the Thirds at Woodside where young Nicky Elliott's fine individual performance helped Lymo to a nailbiting three wicket victory. Having taken three wickets in a Verwood total of 175-5, the Under 15 captain (pictured) then scored a crucial unbeaten 29 as Lymo sneaked home with just one ball to spare. Match report

The First team treats the Sports Ground to an emphatic win over Andover

Lymington's good start to the season continued with a convincing 9 wicket win over Andover at the Sports Ground. Morgan Rushbrook led the way with 3 wickets and an unbeaten 56 as Lymo chased down Andover's 155 all out. There were also telling contributions from Simon Cook (3-20), Ollie Kelly (42no) and Glyn Treagus (32). match report

The Seconds were rather less successful, falling to a disappointing 47 run defeat at Ellingham despite Martin Gregory's five wicket haul. match report

Meanwhile, Tom Thorp returned from his Australian adventures to inspire the Third XI to a 5 wicket win at Beaulieu. Thorp top-scored with 79 and immediately dedicated his innings to his new Australian sweetheart Sheila, while Simon King also chipped in with a half century as Lymington overhauled the home side's 212 for 9.

Lymo off to a winning start

Lymington recovered from a disastrous start to their innings to record a nailbiting victory over local rivals Bashley in the opening Southern Electric Premier League fixture of 2009. Glyn Treagus, Ollie Kelly and debutant James Lucie were all back in the BCG pavilion with just 2 runs on the board. However, a fourth wicket stand of 119 between Morgan Rushbrook (60) and Bryn Darbyshire (54) revived Lymington's fortunes before new skipper Christian Pain (32) took the final total up to 198 for 9.

With new Australian import Simon Cook (3 for 26) bowling a lively opening spell, Lymington grabbed early wickets, although Bash rallied through Richard Morris (56). Eddie Freeman's three vital wickets regained the initiative for Lymo before captain Pain wrapped up victory in the penultimate over with Bashley 14 runs short of their target.

Simon CookFormer Aussie Test bowler on his way to Lymo!

Lymington are delighted to have secured the services of former Australian Test bowler Simon Cook as their overseas player for the forthcoming season.

Simon, or 'Cookie' as he is more commonly known, represented his country in two Tests against New Zealand in 1997, coming into the side as a replacement for Glenn McGrath. The first of those two appearances saw Cookie take seven wickets at the Waca, including a career best 5-39 in the second innings. Among his victims were Nathan Astle, Craig McMillian and Chris Cairns. It was a rapid rise to the international arena for a player who had previously made just a handful of First Class appearances for Victoria and New South Wales.

When injury brought about a premature end to his professional playing career in 2001 after just 34 First Class and Test appearances, Cookie entered the world of coaching and for the past two years has been employed as the bowling coach for the New South Wales state side, working with the likes of Brett Lee, Stuart Clarke, Nathan Bracken and Doug Bollinger. He has also been Sydney Cricket Club's Chairman of Selectors and has been keeping in trim with regular appearances for the Old Australia side.

The 37 year old right arm bowler and left handed batsman was recommended to Lymo by close friend Tim Smith, a former Lymington overseas player and currently Director of Cricket at Sydney CC. Tim has no doubts that the 37 year old fast bowler will be as big a success at Lymington as his previous recommendations Karl Whatham, Pete Smith and Craig O'Shannessy all were. Tim claims that Cookie is a yard or two quicker than Craig, and can also bat a bit too.

Cookie himself is relishing the opportunity to play club cricket in England, especially with Lymington about to embark on their first season in the Gold League. He's hoping he can pass on some of the experience he's gained during his career... and enjoy a pint or two after the game of course!

Speaking of his Test debut, Cookie recalls: "It's every kids dream to play for their country and I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to do that. Naturally I was a bit nervous before the match, but once the game starts, you just get on with it and enjoy the opportunity that has been given to you. My best memories were being presented with my baggy green cap before the start of play, and taking 2-34 and 5-39. Oversleeping on day two of the Test and missing the team bus was probably the worst moment, as captain Mark Taylor told me in no uncertain terms!"

We wish Cookie the best of luck for the 2009 season with Lymington.

Ex-Lymingtonian in All Star XI

Another Aussie with Lymington connections has recently been included in the prestigious Australian Cricketers Association's One Day Team of the Year. Aaron Heal, who played for Lymo in 2002, was selected by his fellow professionals after a string of fine bowling performances for his Western Warriors team in the Ford Ranger Trophy competition. New Hampshire recruit Marcus North was also included in the side, while former South Wilts batsman Chris Rogers was nominated as 12th Man. Aaron is returning to England this summer to play for Rishton in the Lancashire League, following in the footsteps of West Indian legends Michael Holding and Viv Richards who both played for the Lancashire club.

David Irvine 1923-2008
Lymington Cricket Club is saddened to learn of the death of long serving Vice-President David Irvine. David first played in 1951 before moving to Bury St Edmunds, but subsequently rejoined in 1958 and was appointed vice skipper and effectively became the 1st X1 captain for much of that season and in all David played for twelve consecutive years and continued to support the Club well into retirement age. One of his compatriots Lewis Gregory recalls that David was "a very good skipper, meticulous in playing the game in the right spirit, sometimes upsetting players when directing them on the field by using their surnames only, applied to all", Lew also recalls that David was the last skipper to have rolled the square with the enormous old heavy roller not by motor but having the remains of wooden shafts to actually push the roller along with eight other members.

David held various positions during his stay with the Club, and became 1st X1 Captain for 1959/1960 and 1961. His batting was his strength and scored 229 runs in 1958 and 292 runs in 1959. In those days Lymington only played friendlies and very little cricket was played on Sundays. David was voted in as 2nd X1 Captain in 1966 & 1967 and during this time David had the rare distinction of scoring a century for the 2nd X1. In between his stints as captain David won the Frank Robinson Trophy in 1964. David was also a General Committee member from 1959 to 1970 and was elected as Treasurer for 1966/67 & 1968.

After his playing days were over David continued to support the Club and was elected Honorary Auditor from 1970 until 1983. At the AGM in 1983 David was elected a Vice President, which he was immensely proud of and always took an interest in the fortunes of our Club. David was also a great supporter of Sussex and was a member for many years and also of Hampshire.

Indoor League News

Lymington had mixed fortunes last Sunday by losing their cup match with Fawley but beating Paultons in a re-arranged league match. Last year's cup winners batted first against Fawley but only Christian Pain 25 & Neil Trestrail 28 really troubled the scorers and a final total of 107 was always at risk. Fawley galloped off at the start however a game they should have won at a canter turned into a thriller. Needing only 5 off the last over panic took over and wickets fell and there was a chance that Lymington would snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. Wayne Smith prolonged the agony by completely missing the final two deliveries but Fawley won virtue of losing less wickets.

Lymington had the chance to regroup and remain undefeated in their quest for the league title. Lymington always appear to bat first and this was no exception. All the batsmen scored runs with Mr Pain & Mr Naylor reaching retirement plus Neil merrily slogging 20 off one over. With the addition of 32 extras Lymington rattled up 147. Paultons made a game effort to keep up with the run rate and three of their players retired but surprisingly and completely out of character Lymington only conceded 8 extras. With only three games left Lymington are in a good position to win the title for the first time in several years.
