Lympsham remain top of the league after another victory, this time over Broadway and Horton.

LYMPSHAM hosted Broadway and Horton and looked to continue their unbeaten start to the season.

After great work from groundsman Dave Luff to get the game on, skipper Jack Luff lost the toss and was asked to bat.

Unlike previous weeks, Lympsham lost an early wicket as Dave Luff was lbw in the third over. Jack Luff joined recently named Somerset Cricket Board player of the month Jamie Howson, who continued his fine form.

Luff looked to steady the ship as Howson clocked up his fifth consecutive league 50. The pair took the score onto 83-1 at the halfway stage, before Luff accelerated with two cracking sixes, but was caught behind soon after for 45.

After Gary Hutton fell early, it was down to Sam Poole (16), Rich Ford (12) and Craig Scriven (17) to hold up the other end, while Howson went on to score 80 off 100 balls to take Lympsham to 211-8.

In reply, Broadway started well with 17 off two overs. But Luff soon picked up his first victim in his second over to peg the visitors back. Six overs later, Lympsham Concrete man of the match Luff struck twice, clean bowling Payne and Lowman, and then picking up another in his seventh over to complete a superb spell of 4-14 off his seven overs including two maidens.

With a run out from Scriven, this left Broadway and Horton struggling at 58-5. The introduction of youngsters Max Gregory and Adam Micklewright tightened things up, with both picking up a wicket apiece.

Stu Bruce replaced Gregory to pick up a couple for himself, and then an excellent run out from Poole saw the visitors all out for 128 in the 33rd over.

Lympsham 1st XI were awarded second place in the team of the month for May, and another comprehensive performance see Lympsham remain unbeaten at the top of Division 4.
