1's Move Into To Top Spot With Win Over Lymington


Hythe 1's moved to the top of Division 1 with a comprehensive win over Lymington on Sunday. They are now 6 points clear of Paultons but the Totton side has a game in hand.

Hythe fielded first and with only 8 on the board got the breakthrough when a smart piece of wicket keeping by Matt Young stumped Quigley off the bowling of Howe for 2. Grierson and Drodge added 52 before Drodge retired on 25*. Soon after Grierson was caught by a stunning diving catch on the back wall by Harry Smith for 16. It even had Peter Tapper sating incredible catch 71-2.

Ron James then claimed his second wicket when he bowled K.Moors for 4. Five runs later Smith bowled L.Moors for 5 - Lymington 93-4 which became 5 when Guymer caught Bowring off Matt Howe for 1. The returning Drodge was out soon after - caught & bowled Matt Howe for 25 and Lymington had gone from 71-1 to 97 all out.

Hythe opened with Harry Smith and Dave Guymer but after a 13 run first over - Guymer was out first ball - caught & bowled 0. Matt Howe joined Harry Smith who was enjoying an afternoon of big hitting. Smith retired on a quick fire 26* followed by Matt Howe 26* . At 94 Hythe did lose a second wicket - Matt Young for 15 but Rob James 1* and Josh Mead 0* saw Hythe home for a comfortable victory.

Thanks to the Colonal for umpiring and the Guru for scoring. Hythe 1's have a month off now before they face Bransgore & Paultons in their final two league matches.
