LYMPSHAM 1st XI entertained newly promoted Old Cathedralians from Bristol, and having won the toss decided to bat in the hot conditions. Despite this, the opening pair of Dave Luff and Rich Ford kept their concentration on matters in hand and gave their side another solid start, passing the 50 mark before Ford lost his wicket. Jason Parsons joined Luff, but despite a couple of lusty blows out of the ground, he soon lost his wicket and was replaced by Jamie Howson. This pair transformed the match, with the experienced Luff despatching anything loose and young Howson taking the bull by the horns and hitting a 50-ball ton. By the time Joint SB Fencing man of the match Howson's wicket fell for an excellent 110, the pair had added 174 runs and taken the score to 267 in just 37 overs. Skipper Mike Tucker joined Luff to finish the demolition of the opposition bowling, and by the close of the innings the hosts had posted a mighty 356 for the loss of only three wickets, with Joint SB Fencing man of the match Luff carrying his bat for a most impressive 135 not out. Totally demoralised, the visitors made the worst possible start, with opening bowlers Brendon Summers and Simon Pilgrim immediately getting amongst the wickets. The tail did try to wag, but the introduction of Simon Bailey to the attack put pay to that, and the Old Cath's innings floundered on 102 all out after only 24 overs.
