Lyme Regis and Sherborne are getting to know each other very well on the golf course playing each other twice last week. In the Carpet Barn, Sherborne made home advantage tell, but in the Knighton Heath Knock Out Lyme also used home advantage well to progress to the next round. With a seniors’ match and Hardy B cup game this week the local rivalry will continue!
