As we head towards the end of the season, Lyme have posted some good results in friendlies this past week. With the exception of a narrow loss away to Merriott, Lyme have had some impressive results, not least against Donyatt where the home team more than doubled that of the Donyatt side.On Saturday Lyme travelled to Den Teignmouth for their annual return game. This involves a coach journey, a walk about and a meal in Teignmouth and, on the way home, the team were serenaded by Roy Edwards and his accordion. All in all a good day out.Lyme 152, Witney Mills Tour 116:P Cole, J Moseley, R Edwards, J Perry 22-15; H Dowling, J Beadsley, P Moffitt, Chris Barber 24-13; A Rattenbury, S Dowling, N Benson, A Preece 16-22; K Faragher, B Burton, B Stephens, K Clissold 19-21; Y Moody, R Hobbs, E Rodgers, D Perry 17-15; J Moffitt, M Wheeler, B Smith, J Irwin 32-16; C Clissold, K Smith, R Moody, Chas Barber 22-14.Lyme 70, Merriott 75: T Coldrick, S Dowling, J Parsons, K Clissold 19-19; K Faragher, M Wheeler, R Winterborne, C Barber 23-17; C Clissold, H Dowling, B Stephens, B Collier 13-25; T Payne, Jean Perry, R Hobbs, B Parsons 15-14.Lyme 126, Honiton 93: J Moffitt, P Stephens, J Kesterton, A Preece 19-15; O Eke, K Smith, B Burton, Chas Barber 10-23; R McLennan, C Bruckshaw, P Moffitt, Chris Barber 25-15; T Payne, S Applebee, R Winterborne, D Meylan 23-12; J Bruckshaw, J Moseley, N Stephens, G Cozens 18-15; P Cole, D Courtenay- Smith, B Smith, R Edwards 31-13.Lyme 140, Den Teignmouth 119: F Marsh/T Payne, J Beadsley, Jean Perry, John Wells 19-21; T Coldrick, J Moffitt, B Collier, G Cozens 18-15; H Dowling, S Applebee, R Edwards, Chas Barber 24-11; A Rattenbury, D Wood, N Benson, D Meylan 21-13; B Downes, D Courtenay-Smith, R Winterborne, Chris Barber 22-14; Jill Wells, M Bartlett, P Moffitt, B Rattenbury 20-23; S Wood, S Dowling, J Parsons, J Irwin 14-22.Lyme 130, Donyatt 61: J Beavis, J Beadsley, J Eaton, D Perry 31-8; H Dowling, P Stephens, P Moffitt, J Irwin 30-12; B Downes, S Applebee, G Clode, N Benson 22-13; T Payne, S Wood, E Rodgers, G Cozens 34-8; J Moffitt, S Dowling, D Wood, B Parsons 13-20.Finally, get well soon Yvonne, we miss you on the green.
