1. Ollie Kelly - Right handed opening batsman and leg spinner who joined Lymington from Sparsholt in 2007. Initially played for the First XI but then dropped down and captained the Seconds. Scored almost 1,900 SPCL runs including highest scores of 54 for the First XI against Trojans in 2007 and 106 versus Ventnor in 2017. Penetrating leg spinner who took 95 wickets at 21.66 with a best of 6-38 against Trojans who, coincidentally, he would join from Lymo in 2019.

2. Derek Kenway - Highly rated 16 year old batsman and wicketkeeper who had a very brief spell at Lymo in 1994 before moving to Hambledon. Scored just 16 runs in two innings but went on to have a successful First Class career with Hampshire in which he scored almost 4,400 runs with a highest score of 166. Played over 100 one day games with a best of 120 not out against Zimbabwe.

3. Andrew King (w/k) - Superb wicketkeeper/batsman who holds a little place in Lymington cricketing history by captaining the side and scoring a century in the club's very first league match against Worthies Sports in May 1973. More than useful batsman who scored over 1,100 runs in 1969 alone and also claimed 40 catches and 10 stumpings in that same season.

4. Simon King - Right handed batsman who made just 38 First and Second XI appearances in five years with the club between 2005 and 2011, scoring almost 600 SPCL runs in that time. First XI highest score of 79 not out against OTs & Romsey in 2006, although he hit an unbeaten 82 for the Thirds against Bashley Fourth XI in 2011.

5. Dr C.W. Kay - Captained the club during the 1920s and was known as a powerful hitter. Scored 57 against a strong I Zingari side in 1926. Legend has it he once struck a ball into St Thomas's Street from the Sports Ground, a massive hit if true.

6. Wahid Khan - Lymington were one of a number of SPCL clubs this leg spinner and middle order batsman turned out for between 2006 and 2012. Scored 430 runs in 32 matches for Lymo with a best of 50 against Totton & Eling in 2011, and took 29 wickets including 4-18 in a T20 match against Fareham & Crofton.

7. Clive Kitcher - A member of the 'Whitehouse Wonders' colts team of the early 1980s, the tall and powerful all rounder from East Boldre broke into the First XI at just 18 years of age in 1984, taking 3-29 against Trojans. Took 24 wickets in 1991 before a shoulder injury unfortunately ended his Southern League carer with Lymington. Hit the ball a long way and possessed a giant pair of hands in the field.

8. David Kidner - Former Dorset opening bowler who played 13 times for Lymo in 2013 with best figures of 5-21 against Totton & Eling.

9. Ed Kelly - Batsman who played only a handful of games, usually as a late replacement, but performed well when called upon. Highest score of 23 against Hursley Park in 2016.

10. Matt King - Lively fast bowler who played for Lymo in the 1989 and 1990 seasons, taking 40 wickets including two five wickets hauls in 1990. Moved across to Bashley and went on to take close on 400 Southern League wickets.

11. Colin Kitcher - We're clutching at straws a bit here. Fast bowler Colin did play for Lymington colts with the aforementioned Clive Kitcher (no relation) but we don't think he ever appeared for the senior XIs. However, he did turn up for an indoor net once at Northlands Road, so that's good enough for us.

Mention: Mark Kitcher, Sarah Keeton

Summary: Excellent new ball attack but a very long tail. Will need some big innings from Kenway.
