Lyme Regis Henry Broom Rose Bowl final test for Lorna and Chris

PUBLISHED: 09:35 07 September 2018 | UPDATED: 09:35 07 September 2018




The ladies have probably done enough to keep themselves up in the first division after a nail-biting 6-4 win against Dorchester at home, writes Paul Moffitt.

Despite losing on two rinks, a fine five shots on the last end by Sue Rowe’s rink saved the day with the home team scraping home by a single shot.

On Sunday, club members who have not won a singles competition took part in the Henry Broom Rose Bowl event.

On a straight knockout basis, Lorna Young and Chris Pomeroy will contest the final during ‘finals’ weekend.

The two ladies were able to overcome several male league players on their way to the final - I trust that doesn’t sound sexist!

Just two friendlies were played over the past week, both against touring sides. On both occasions Lyme came second!
