Lymington v Sway – Stone Cup 1st Round

Lymington 154
Sway 86 all out

Lymington won the toss and chose to bat on a very good Sports Ground wicket in the Stone Cup match against Sway. Opener Mark Gannaway was in sparkling form from the first ball despatching the bowling to all parts of the ground. He was the main contributor in an opening partnership with Mark Jackson of 102. Gannaway was out LBW in the 11th over having hit 9 fours and 2 sixes in his entertaining knock of 83. Lymington went on to reach 154 in their 18 overs with R Drayton 2-15 being the best of the Sway bowlers. In reply, Sway’s innings never really got going losing the wicket Hammond to their first ball caught behind by Jackson off Jimmy Lillington 2-24. However, the pair of R Drayton (13) and T Burton (31) then began to stage a recovery before the introduction of promising young spin bowler Jason Walbank turned the match. Jason bowled in wet conditions with good flight and returned excellent figures of 4-17. Sway were dismissed for 86 with one of their players being unable to bat following an accident while fielding. Lymington now move forward into the semi-finals.
