The match started with second place hosting third and Romsey won an important toss to have the opportunity to bowl first.
Their decision seem justified as Paultons lost wickets at regular intervals. Five wickets shared between opening bowlers Steve Smith and Daniel Mogg saw Romsey make a good start.
Nathan Feltham and Antony Richman showed some resistance as they hit 34 and 39 respectively for the home side but once they were removed by Pete Newman and Jody Brown, the hosts offered little else.
Brown cleared up the tail as he picked up two more wickets as Paultons were bowled out for 182.
In reply, Romsey made a slow start falling to 11-3 as the home side’s opening bowlers start well. However, three wickets meant Rob Newman and Will Edwards were brought to the crease.
The pair took apart everything Paultons threw out them, smashing boundaries at a consistent pace.
The sensational hitting saw a stand of 172 for the fourth wicket as Rob Newman fired 16 sixes on his way to an unbeaten 109 off just 104 balls. He was ably supported by Edwards, who himself hit nine boundaries on the way to a score of 53*.
The partnership saw Romsey cruise to victory with 19 overs and seven wickets to spare.
