Langley Manor v Lymington II

Lymington 152 all out
Langley Manor 153-7

Lymington traveled to the picturesque setting of Langley Manor looking to bounce back after defeat in their previous game at Gosport. After losing the toss Lymington were asked to bat first and were soon in trouble at 42-4 after the first 13 overs. Captain Ollie Kelly was playing a lone hand but when he was dismissed for 38 Lymington then slid to 99-9 in the face of some accurate Langley Manor bowling. Richard Nowell and Adie Hunt then added 53 for the last wicket before Hunt was caught for 27 leaving Nowell undefeated on 48 as Lymington limped to 152 all out.

Defending an under par score Lymington needed to take wickets and Keiran Moors made an early breakthrough in the third over, other chances were created and missed in the first 10 overs as Langley Manor played aggressively. The introduction of Guy Layman (4-36) into the bowling attack made an immediate impact as he bowled a tremendous spell to keep Lymington in the game but ultimately a combination of not enough runs and dropped catches meant that Langley Manor won by 3 wickets with over 20 overs to go.
