JORDAN Stone and Jack O’Connell each took three wickets as Division Two leaders Lydney restricted Redmarley to 135.

Requiring a shade more than three an over, Lydney eased their way to their fifith win in an unbeaten start to the season.

Lydney put the visitors in to bat and openers James Holland and Ronnie Newbery set about their task building up a useful partnership.

It was a combination of O’Connell and Stone that made the breakthrough against the threatening partnership.

O’Connell took the catch to dismiss Holland for 23 – including three fours – with the score on 41.

Newbery had hit three fours and a six in an innings of 25 when he was caught and bowled by O’Connell to make it 60-2.

With runs proving hard to come by, the visitors then lost two quick wickets with Joe Lawrence going leg before to Callum Miller for one on 65 and then Charlie Ayland being caught for 13 by Tom Legge off the bowling of O’Connell at 67.

Redmarley had added 19 when Craig Stow was bowled by Callum Miller for five and the visitors were 86-5.

Kevin Trouw and Ben Gwilliam had a partnership of 22 before Gwilliam was bowled by O’Connell for 13.

One of the 12 balls he faced went for six.

Trouw had made16 when he was caught by Jonathan Kear off the bowling of Stone and Redmarley were on 114-7.

The visitors had moved the score on by five when captain Alex Gooding bowled Sam Mattingley who had scored five.

Gooding was again on target with the ball – this time from the field – to run out Redmarley skipper Andrew Green for two with the score 120-9.

Paul Newbery and Harry Radley combined to add another 15 much-needed runs to the Redmarley total.

Newbery, who was on one when Radley joined him, ended the innings with 14 runs off 17 balls including a four.

The innings closed with an over still to go when Radley was caught by Alex Antoine off the bowling of Jordan Stone.

Lydney had been set a target of 136 which was well within the capabilities of the Lydney batsmen.
