Hythe & Dibden v Lymington – Stone Cup semi-final

Hythe & Dibden 112-5
Lymington 109-5

Lymington won the toss and chose to field on a very good looking track in their Stone Cup semi-final match played away against Hythe & Dibden. Opening bowlers Alex Treagus and Jimmy Lillington 2-21 began well and at the halfway point of the 18 over innings Hythe had been restricted to 47-2. Damian Jayasinghe and Peter Tapper 2-25 then continued the good work to enable the promising youngster Jason Walbank and experienced Hugo Ambrose to complete the remaining overs which saw Hythe reach 112-5. G Sanderson was top scorer for Hythe run out for 39.  Mark Gannaway and skipper Mark Jackson started the Lymington reply, but unfortunately Mark Gannaway who had been in sparkling form for the previous round of the Stone Cup against Sway was bowled for 4. Jackson was joined by Jayasinghe and the pair took the total to 72 before Jackson was caught behind for 31. Simon Naylor then entered the arena and struck what appeared to be a ball heading over the boundary only to be brilliantly caught by White diving full-length. Charlie Hampton then had a brief stay at the crease before Peter Tapper (20) struck some lusty blows to edge Lymington ever closer to the target. Jayasinghe was striking the ball well scoring 38 not out, but good Hythe bowling supported by deep field placings saw the Lymington innings end after their 18 overs on 109 -5 and a win for Hythe & Dibden by 3 runs.
