There is just one more week left of the outdoor season at Lyme Regis, writes Paul Moffitt.

There were two friendly matches played last week as well as the usual end of season meeting between the men and the ladies’ teams.

Some of the ladies looked unfamiliar, especially those sporting beards!

This game was finished off in the clubhouse where, a sumptuous spread had been laid on by catering supremo Sue Wood, and her merry band of helpers.
