|28 Dec 08||AGM HONOURS NEIL TRESTRAIL
Neil Trestrail has been awarded life membership of Lymington Cricket Club.
The accolade, which was presented at the club's recent Annual General Meeting at the Walhampton Arms, is in recognition of more than two decades of loyal service to the club.
Since making his debut against Trojans 23 years ago when, typically, he took
The AGM also saw Christian Pain installed as new First XI captain. Christian will have a challenging job on his hands as Lymington begin their first season in the prestigious Division One of the Southern Premier League following promotion last season. Outgoing skipper Adie Hunt, who drops down to captain the Second XI, reflected on a highly satisfying season for his side. A third place finish was ultimately enough to see the team promoted, although had it not been for a couple of highly forgettable performances against local rivals New Milton, the team would almost certainly have been challenging champions Ventnor for the title. Overseas player Craig O'Shannessy topped the division's bowling charts with 39 wickets, while Morgan Rushbrook scored 548 runs at an average of almost 50. The team also came agonizingly close to making the Twenty20 play-off finals at the Rose Bowl, losing out off the last ball after dominating division one side Totton & Eling. Sadly, the Second and Third XIs were less successful with both sides suffering the ignominy of relegation from their respective divisions.
The meeting heard that the Sports Ground had finished fourth in the ground gradings for the entire Southern Premier League in 2008 no mean feat for a local authority ground. The ground had also finished top of the Hampshire League Division One ratings. Paul Banks and his Town Council colleagues were thanked for their hard work, as was Peter Tapper who's hours of rolling had ensured a snooker table-like surface. Ronnie Hawker was mentioned in despatches for his admirable efforts on the vastly improved wicket at Woodside.
Lee Moors reported that 2008 had been another successful year for Lymington Colts section with the Under 9s and 11As winning their respective divisions and the Under 15s finishing runners-up. The club could also boast two county colts in Oscar Marshall and Felix Ambrose, and numerous New Forest representatives. The club's coaches, especially Morgan Rushbrook, were praised for their hard work with the youngsters while the meeting also gave thanks to Jim Lowe who had recently emigrated to New Zealand. Jim¹s tireless work over the past few years had not only helped bring success on the field of play, but had also been instrumental in the club¹s recent awarding of Focus Club status.

Part of Trevor Phillips research for the A-Z teams - He says "I've been ploughing through the hundreds and hundreds of photos of Lymington players and teams. Thanks to the incredible efforts of the Brig and his trusty camera during the 1980s and 90s we must have one of the largest photo archives of any local club in cricket (I reckon LCC must have kept the Southampton branch of Snappy Snaps going all on its own). Here are just a few of the team photos. If you can name every single player featured you could win an all-expenses-paid night in with our very own Tony 'Wobbly' Wharton.

Sway Lymo u17 Kerry Cup winners. Back row: Jude Tollerfield, Ollie Smith, Dan Bailey, Josh Bailey, Josh Royan, Danny Paxton. Front row: Arthur Lomax, Ben Paxton, Tom Burton, Liam McCurdy, Tom Sykes
SwayLymo u17s power to Hampshire Kerry Cup T20 victoryThe collaboration this season between Sway CC & Lymington CC to field u17 & u19 teams in county competitions has proved highly successful as in a nerve-jangling finals day of high quality T20 cricket at Basingstoke the SwayLymo u17 team eventually lifted the prestigious Kerry Cup.
Semi-final - SwayLymo 120-4 beat Fair Oak 117-8 by 6 wicketsIn the morning semi-final Fair Oak won the toss and batted. They started strongly and had put on 40 runs before Chahal (16) fell to Tom Sykes (4-0-27-1) in the 7th over. Then McKenzie (40) and Watson (29) took the score smoothly onto 70 in the 10th over and a daunting run chase looked on the cards.The SwayLymo spinners regained some control of the game as firstly Jude Tollerfield (4-0-23-1) broke the partnership and then Dan Bailey (4-0-22-2) and Josh Bailey (4-0-21-0) kept the runs down and took wickets to allow pacers Sykes and Josh Royan (4-0-23-1) to bowl some tight death overs, which together with some excellent fielding and three run outs restricted Fair Oak to 117-8.The SwayLymo response faltered at the start as the usually reliable Royan and D.Bailey both fell to sharp catches leaving them 12-2 after 4 overs. Sykes and J.Bailey needed to rebuild against some tight bowling and batted sensibly before displaying their power and both regularly finding and clearing the boundary to put on an invaluable 81 runs in just 10 overs. J.Bailey fell one short of a well-deserved 50 in the 14th over and Sykes then pushed on to 47 runs before he was bowled going for the winning runs. Liam McCurdy and Tom Burton saw SwayLymo safely into the final in the 17th over.
Final - SwayLymo 144-6 beat Parley 142-5 by 4 wicketsSwayLymo won the toss and invited Parley to bat. The Parley openers Neill (33) and Saunders (39) both started powerfully, putting on 59 for the 1st wicket before Josh Bailey (4-0-24-2) came onto bowl in the 8th over and produced a game-changing spell as he bowled Neill in his 1st over and had Saunders brilliantly caught by Tom Burton on the boundary in his next over. Jude Tollerfield (4-0-27-1) kept the other end reasonably tight and the Parley run-rate was temporarily checked although Bragginton (42 no) soon began to find his range. Tom Sykes (4-0-22-2) and Dan Bailey (4-0-23-0) both continued to maintain some control with Parley finishing their 20 overs on 142, which was agreed to be a decent par score.The SwayLymo opening pair of Royan (35) and D.Bailey (16) redeemed themselves with a fine opening partnership of 42 in 5 overs before Bailey was caught behind off the pacy Saunders. Sykes (24) came in and batted well again and with Royan took the score to 79 in the 11th over when Royan was out. Sykes was joined again by J.Bailey and they faced some tight bowling from Blackford, Bragginton and Sinha as the asking rate climbed to nearly 9 an over when Sykes was out to an amazing reaction catch off his own bowling by Sinha and then Liam McCurdy fell to a superb catch on the boundary by Saunders. Skipper Tom Burton joined Bailey at the crease with 43 required off 5 overs. Bailey then launched an aerial assault wreaking damage on parked cars as he cleared the boundary twice but was eventually caught off another towering shot. Burton (17 no) was joined by Ben Paxton (7) and they pushed the score on to 138 in the penultimate over when Paxton was run out and Jude Tollerfield came to the crease. With 5 runs required off the final over a dot ball, a leg bye and a scampered single by Tollerfield kept crowd nerves jangling and brought the equation to 3 required off 3 balls. Skipper Burton was the supercool batter as he gloriously launched the 4th ball back over the bowler's head for four to spark scenes of jubilation by the SwayLymo players and supporters, and warm appreciation for a great game of cricket from the large crowd.At the trophy presentation the umpires nominated Josh Bailey for the Man of the Match award.The SwayLymo partnership have another chance of silverware as the u19s have also reached the Finals Day of the Hampshire u19T20 competition to be held at Basingstoke on Monday 26th August.
The Captain's High Altitude Spanish 'Camp' in Pre Season must have paid off as the Lymington CC W10 team have done it again. Our fabulous Women's W10 crew have sailed past the marker and are still celebrating as the winners on Sunday 11th August in the Hampshire HCB Soft Ball Competition. Fantastic day out at the Ageas Bowl plus seeing the Southern Vipers!
The first team competes in the elite ECB Southern Premier League. The second team plays in Premier Division 3. We are one of only a handful of clubs that has two teams in the premier leagues. The third and fourth teams play in the Hampshire County and region leagues. This provides a pathway for our Juniors from 13+ years to move into senior cricket and also for those wise veterans to pass on cricket advice.
The Hampshire Cricket Board are one of the leading pioneers in the development of women’s cricket and the sport’s regional popularity has risen significantly at grassroots level due to the early success of a soft ball initiative, W10.
One of few women’s cricket teams in the South West of Hampshire for grassroots players. Lymington CC continues to pioneer the inclusiveness of women and girls cricket into the club.
W10 has driven a surge of interest in the sport since its 2015 launch and, now comprising 14 participating clubs, the programme is fully engaging with its target audience.
