1. Rob Lammiman (w/k) - Wicketkeeper and right handed batsman who came to Lymington from Shanklin in 2008. Scored 705 runs for the club from 34 innings and claimed 33 catches and 6 stumpings. Highest score of 62 not out versus Alton in 2011 but most important innings came during the T20 Cup final win over Ventnor at the Ageas Bowl in 2009 when he was Lymo's top scorer with 44.

2. James Lucy - All rounder who played for two seasons in 2009 and 2010 and was part of the 2009 T20 winning team, taking 1-24 in the final. Solid batsman but his 16 innings for the club produced a modest return of just 143 runs with a best of 56 against Bournemouth.

3. Richard Lock - Talented Zimbabwean batsman and off-spinner who played for Lymington in 2016 and 2017, scoring 880 runs and taking 54 wickets at 19. Top score of 101 against Havant. Has been similarly successful since moving to Burridge.

4. Malcolm Lake - Hugely talented all rounder from Zimbabwe who played just five matches in 2017 but made a big impression nonetheless before injury ended his season prematurely. Scored a blistering 171 not out against New Milton, an innings that included 4 sixes and 19 fours. Also took 12 wickets including 5-54 against Havant. Made seven First Class appearances for Oxford MCCU.

5. Jim Lowe - A member of the first Lymington colts league team in 1976. Unorthodox batsman who gave the ball a good whack. Often dominated an innings, no better illustrated than in 1982 when Lymo, chasing a target of 67 at Pennington, won by 10 wickets with Jim finishing on 64 not out. Finished the 2003 season with an incredible Fourth XI batting average of 154. Captained the Third XI, coached the juniors and ran a highly successful colts league at Lymington Sports Centre before emigrating to New Zealand in 2008.

6. Guy Layman - South African opening bowler and lower order batsman who joined the club in 2011. Slingy action which has gleaned 188 wickets, mainly for the First XI, at an average of 21.25. Best bowling figures of 6-43 for the Second XI at Fair Oak on the final day of the 2018 season, a performance that helped stave off relegation. Underused batsman, highest score of 80 against Gosport in 2014.

7. Ian Loveless - Prolific former New Forest League batsman who was cajoled out of retirement to play for the Fourth XI in recent years and produced match winning innings of 34 not out against Christchurch in 2018 and 33 not out last summer. Has three boys playing for the juniors, and coaches the Under 11s.

8. John Lawson - Archetypal old-school style batsman, first appeared for Lymington in the mid-1970s and scored 577 runs in the 1975 season and a year later struck an unbeaten 85 against Southgate. Appearances thereafter were somewhat limited but has remained a keen supporter of the club, always willing to offer coaching tips to anyone who wanted to listen, and a few who didn't.

9. Nick Little - Whole-hearted seam bowler who played for the Second XI in 1993 and was a member of the Cross Solent League winning side. Took a best of 4-24 for the second XI versus Basingstoke Always gave 100% but was a little injury prone (no pun intended).

10. Pete Lawrence - Enthusiastic wicketkeeper and flamboyant batsman who played most of his cricket for the Third and Fourth XIs and Midweek League side during the late 1980s and early 1990s. Top score of 53 not out for the Third XI in 1989.

11. Ben Ladd-Gibbons - Sharpish young opening bowler from Dorset who played five matches for the club in 2012, claiming just one wicket. Went on to play two First Class matches for Loughborough MCCU in 2017, taking four wickets.

Mentions: Nick Lee, Paul Le Povedin, Elliott and Aidan Lindsay-Wood, Mark Lavis, Quentin Lacey

Summary: Solid top order but will be hoping that Lake stays fit. As the only spinner Lock will have a big part to play.
