LINGFIELD'S first XI enjoyed a great weekend with victories in both the league and cup.

On Saturday, Lingfield beat Long Ditton by 44 runs in a top of the table clash in the Surrey County League Division One, scoring 197-7 from 45 overs having won the toss and electing to bat first.

Mark Lloyd again starred with the bat, scoring 60 runs, while Simon Hooker scored an unbeaten 52 to help his side up to 197, having been in trouble at 58-5.

In reply, Long Ditton got off to a good start with openers Anand Desai (33) and Jason Matthews (37) starting well, racing to 50-0.

But when Hooker dismissed the dangerous Matthews, it sparked a change in Lingfield's fortunes with a flurry of wickets, which included three run outs.

Carr (2-31), Henry Mitchell (2-18) and Mark Hendry (2-35) all helped Lingfield to victory as the hosts were dismissed in 42.3 overs.

Meanwhile, on Sunday, Lingfield thrashed Hampton Hill in the second round of the Surrey County League Cup.

Batting first, Lingfield posted 235-5 from 45 overs, with Carr (74), Callum Forbes (59) and Oli White (42) all making decent contributions.

In response, Hampton Hill never looked like getting close to the target, with Andrew Daw (4-29) the pick of the Lingfield bowlers as they were dismissed for just 70 runs in 23.1 overs.
