Lympsham collapse at Lodway

Lympsham’s latest defeat seen them finish in mid-table obscurity.

LYMPSHAM 1st XI travelled to Ham Green to play Lodway, and skipper Jason Parsons lost the toss and was invited to bat.

The visitors made a bad start losing both openers cheaply, but Rich Drew and Lympsham Concrete man of the match Jason Parsons steadied the ship and began to rebuild. Unfortunately, when Drew was dismissed none of the other batsmen could support Parsons, and Lympsham were dismissed for 104.

In reply, the home batsmen also struggled, but despite some early success the home side batsmen were soon on top and knocked off the required winning total in just 18 overs.

The loss of this final match of the season left Lympsham in mid-table obscurity, and the club will hope for an improvement next season.
