Lydd 157-4 Clive Vale 152-7  Scorecard

After a last minute discussion about what ground the game would be played at, Vale travelled to Lydd taking their tea with them.

Being forced to bat first in a 30 over game, Carl Brook 39 and Darren Mortimer 30 started well but the good bowling in gale force winds with the lowering sun, made runs difficult to score with A.Keering 3-36 and Lindsey 2-38 keeping the score to 5 an over.

In reply Lydd lost early wickets to Mortimer 1-38, Wickens 1-20 and a run out. Matt Bowles 1-52 was the only other player with any success.

Good partnerships by R.Bates 22, Keeling 38, Beaumont 24 not out and C.Wilmer 31 not out saw Lydd home with 3 balls to spare.
