LYMPSHAM 1st XI's match away against Stoke Gifford was a victim of the weather, but with their closest rivals Alveston losing against Gordano Valley, the Bristol and District Division 3 title was secured.The 2nd XI entertained Chipping Sodbury, who sat at the top of the division. With the pitch still damp from overnight rain, the home side elected to field and their opening bowlers Geoff Tucker (2-32) and TJL Home Services man of the match Steve Wilcox (5-52) had instant success taking four early wickets, the highlight of which being the dismissal of Webb as a result of an outstanding catch by Matt Wilcox. The champions-elect recovered well though, and with their middle order scoring freely, managed to post 171-9, despite a fine display behind the stumps by Steve Gwinnell which included two fine stumpings. In reply, the hosts batsmen made heavy work of the drying pitch, and only Phil Yelland (23) using his considerable experience managed to contribute anything substantial, and the innings floundered on a disappointing 100 all out.
