Having won the toss, Lympsham captain Tom Gooding asked Burnham to bat first.

With the score on 146, Lympsham Concrete man of the match Felix Grandfield (2-38) picked up a quick pair of wickets. Sam Poole (3-36) took wickets regularly including the dangerous Worthington for 60 to restrict their hosts to 217-7.
