Whilst the 1s were finding it hard going against the Fair Oak 1st XI ~ Kev McCarthy had found a friendly fixture against Fair Oak 4s at Swanmore on the artificial.

Hythe batted first and the top order enjoyed themselves as the top 4 all retired in the 50s not out.

Harry Parker made 50* Martin Duell 51*. Then Tariq Iqbal blitzed 5x5s & 5x6s in a quick fire 20 ball 52*. Andy Murkitt then hit 52* and useful runs down the list from Fletcher 11, Knight-Owen 12* & Dan Duell 16* saw Hythe to 295-3  

Fair Oak were never going to challenge Hythe's total but they put up a good challenge in scoring 209-3 with their top 4 all scoring 30+.

Jack Knight-Owen was the pick of the Hythe bowling 2-23 off 5 whilst Steve Rollinson bowled 6 overs 0-16.

Great game and thanks to our friendly hosts.

RESULT :  Hythe & Dibden Sun XI Beat Fair Oak 4th XI by 86 Runs
