LYMINGTON were skittled for 49 by Hampshire Academy – their lowest total in the Southern Premier League.

Chasing 238 for victory, Lymington were rocked when Dorset's Scott Currie (3-14) reduced them to 16 for three, his scalps including in-form Ryan Scott, superbly caught in the slips by Felix Organ.

Ajeet Dale then trapped in front James Grady with no addition to the score before Dom Hand (13) and Dimitri Adams (12) both managed to get into double figures.

However, after they had perished at the hands of Tom Scriven (2-13), Dale (4-17) claimed a hat-trick – Simon Beetham, Matt Metcalfe and Josh Proctor – as Lymington lost their last six wickets for just 12 runs.

Scriven played a key role in the Academy's 188-run victory, hitting a maiden SPL century after they had crashed to four for three.

Openers Organ and George Metzger, along with Josh Wood, were all back in the pavilion as Metcalfe (2-43) and Beetham (1-15) struck a triple new-ball blow.

But that was as good as it got for Lymington as Scriven (121) and Fletcha Middleton (31) gradually repaired the damage and shared a match-changing 109 fourth-wicket partnership.

Any prospect Lymington had of wresting back the initiative was thwarted when Scriven and Scott Currie (32) put on 64 for the fifth wicket before Adams (2-78) parted them.

Scriven, who played for England in the ICC Under-19 World Cup in New Zealand in the winter, hit two sixes and 11 fours while Tom Prest (31) also chipped in as the Academy posted 237 for seven.

A second-wicket stand of 92 between Tom Arnold and Raff Hussey proved in vain as New Milton suffered a 32-run defeat at the hands of Premier Division high-fliers Burridge.

Arnold (92), eventually eighth out at 225, and Hussey (55) eased Milton’s reply to 101 for one in pursuit of Burridge's 268 for nine.

And the Green & Golds were still firmly in the hunt at 194 for four before Hilio De Abreu (3-27) and Nic McMurray (4-33) helped polish them off for 236.

Earlier, Burridge had been in some difficulty at 95 for five with Lee Beck (3-60) and George Watts (3-42) among the wickets.

But a stand of 87 between De Abreu (57) and Dan Stancliffe (76) checked Milton progress with Rick Ankers (38) adding important runs down the order.
