Presidents Cup: Sway v Lymington

Lymington 128 for 6
Sway 123 for 7 in 18 overs

On a sunny evening at the lovely looking Jubilee Fields in Sway the Lymington captain Ed Ellis won the toss and elected to bat. Openers Conor Moors (6) and Dominic Hand (9) were separated when the former was run out quickly followed by the latter. Richie Lock (38) and Ed Ellis (45) batted well before both were out caught. Cameron Grierson (0) was bowled as was Ollie Calcott (1) but Guy Layman (8 not out) and Chris Blake (16 not out) took the Lymington score to 128 for 6 in 18 overs.

In reply the Lymington opening attack Richie Lock (4 overs 1 for 17) and Guy Layman (3 overs 0 for 22) were unable to make an initial breakthrough but 15 year old leg break bowler Cameron Robertson (4 overs 1 for 19) dismissed former Lymington colt Tim Noble (20) well caught on the mid-wicket boundary by Richie Lock. 1st XI off spinner Dominic Hand (4 overs 2 for 27) also picked up a wicket and then Chris Blake (2 overs 0 for 21) was assaulted by David Steadman (34) who hit him for 3 sixes until holing out to a good catch at deep mid-off by Cameron Grierson. Adie Hunt ( 1 over 0 for 7) bowled tightly and with sub Lee Moors fielding well Sway needed 10 off the last over by Richie Lock but ended up 5 runs short at 123 for 7 after the 18 overs.

Lymington are away to Bashley in the semi-final of the Presidents Cup on Monday 20th June starting at 6.15pm
