LYMINGTON vs HYTHE UNDER 11's
High Praise For Under 11’s Win @ Lymington
|Fraser SMITH 12|
When a Lymington Umpire compliments any side - then thats Highe Praise not only for the win but the sportsmanship shown - well done.
Lymington Umpire Stuart Robertson said about our Under 11's. - ' Thanks for today, I wonder if you can just forward this to the team we played, I thought that the boys were not only really sporting in their attitude towards lymington but also in the encouragement of their own players ( those less experienced at bowling ) they were really great credit to their parents and club, not that ours weren't but they were exceptional'
Hythe and Dibden under 11s finally got back to the business of the league after the cup semi final win. In the final league game of the season at Lymington, Captain Tom Knight-Owen lost the toss and Hythe were stuck into bat.
Hythe opened the batting with Sam Jessney and Fraser Smith and the green caps got off to a good start. Fraser Smith hit to balls for four on the leg side and Sam Jessney backed him up and defended his wicket well. Sam Jessney finishes with 3 and no outs, Fraser Smith 12 with no outs. Hythe at 4 overs were 219-0.
The second pair was Tom Jones and Tom Knight-Owen. Unfortunatly this is where Hythe began to hit problems with the Lymington bowlers bowling good lines. They picked up the wicket of Tom Jones twice and with Tom Knight-Owen only facing 4 balls Jones was forced to defend his wicket. Knight-Owen finished with 2 and no outs, Tom Jones -3 with 2 outs. The Third pair was Sam Carley and Will Ladbury. Both got off to being bowled first ball leaving Hythe struggling with 218 at the end of 9th, 10th and 11th overs. Carley (2 fours) eventually finished with -4 with 3 outs and Ladbury -2 with one Out.
The final pair for Hythe was Lewie Fay and Sam Copley. They went about quickly trying to repair the damage and the first four went to Copley. Both batsman continued to score freely with Copley hitting 2 fours and Fay hitting 3 fours. The only blemish for the pair was Copley getting out on the last ball of the innings but still left him on 4 and Fay finished on 17 with no outs. - Hythe 258-7
The Green Caps opened the bowling with Sam Carley and Sam Copley. Whilst neither picked up wickets in their first overs Carley sent a message to the Lymington dressing room with a bouncer. It was Knight-Owen who took the first wicket, which was caught by Fay and then in Fay’s first over he picked up the wicket of Flaxman clean bowled. Fay continued to be in the action by then picking up a run out.
The story of run outs was continued by Sam Jessney who hit the stumps clean to take the wicket of Flaxman and then with Will Ladbury getting a run out with the batsman trying to sneak a run. Tom Jones, Sam Jessney and Fraser Smith all bowled well and kept the extras down. It was Copley who took the next wickets though with 2 clean bowled in his 3rd over and then the final wicket fell to Lewie Fay clean bowled. Lymington finished on 217-8
Hythe fielded well and Will Ladbury let no byes through at all in an excellent performance with the gloves and backing up the run outs and taking one himself. Lymington deserved credit for the way they bowled and their commitment in the field. Thanks to all the scorers this year; Chris Copley, Andy Carley, Dave Knight-Owen and Phil Ladbury. Also to the umpiring done by; Chris Copley, Elliot Carley, Matt Young, Tom Richards, Jack Knight-Owen and Jonjo Stovell. Finally a big thank you to Helen Fay for organising all the availability and getting the sides together. -Lymington 217-8
