New Forest Under 9 League
Some tight bowling and disciplined batting saw Bashley record a comfortable 40 run win over Lymington at the Sports Ground. The home side were restricted to 230 despite another fine innings from Ollie Dixon who top scored with 15. Edward Fox, Lucas Le Povedin and George Milbourn recorded positive scores, while Kieren Pardoe, Olli Stott and Charlie Donaldson each took a wicket for Bashley.
With Dixon grabbing a wicket in the first over Lymington were given a glimmer of hope, but sadly that was to be his team’s only success. Bashley’s batsmen resolutely defended their wickets, and with the bowling side’s wide count growing, they had passed Lymington’s score by the ninth over. The last pair of Pardoe and Billy Willcox wrapped up the match with an unbeaten partnership of 19 in their four overs to seal a 40 run victory margin.
