Lodsworth v Ancient Mariners

LCC V Ancient Mariners. Home.

20th July.

Sussex Rules.

Lodsworth 212 for 8. Ancient Mariners 112 all out. Lodsworth Won.

Ancient Mariners are a touring side and turned out with a good crowd on a beautiful afternoon. Lodsworth were happy to have Rod Taylor and his son Jake amongst our eleven after several years abroad. Having lost the toss we began our innings tentatively and with only Hall(12) and Rod Taylor(17) making double figures. Then a solid partnership from Waller(65) and Phillips(47) also running a leg burning number of byes! The home side were back on track and with a useful 25 not out from Long we went into a delicious tea with 212 on the board.

Some accurate bowling by Long (21 for 2 from 10) and Hall (30 for 1 from 7) kept the Mariners openers under control with Phillips (18 for 4 from 5) doing for the middle order and Waller (3 from 2 from 2.2) tidying the tail the only person to struggle with a 62 not out name is unfortunately lost but without support they were to fall a ton short.
