LYMPSHAM 1st XI, lying unbeaten at the top of the league, hosted Stoke Gifford from South Gloucestershire, who themselves had lost only once and were handily placed in third.Knowing the importance of the clash, skipper Mike Tucker won the toss and elected to bat on a pitch left dry and dusty due to the recent hot weather. Vice-captain Jason Parsons joined his skipper to open the batting and they made an encouraging start, until Tucker lost his wicket in the eighth over to be replaced by Rich Ford. On Parsons departure, Ford was joined by in-form Jamie Howson and the pair moved the score past the 100 mark without experiencing too many problems. But soon wickets began to fall at regular intervals, and only Rod Simpson added anything significant as the rest of the batsmen showed little application and were dismissed for a disappointing 151. With such a low total to chase, the visitors knew they only had to occupy the crease for their allocated overs and bat sensibly to win, and this is exactly what they did, reaching their target for the loss of six wickets.The Lympsham bowlers, including SB Fencing man of the match Simon Pilgrim, toiled manfully and shared the wickets that did fall, but had no room for error defending such a low total.
