There were some lowly results for Lyme in the league fixtures this week, with the Championship side and the ladies managing four points apiece, the A and B teams two points and the Edna Paisley team nil points!

That said, the Championship side has secured fifth spot in their league as they finished up their season with a draw at Alexandra Park. The ladies, who were away to Broadstone, were unfortunate not to get the lion's share of the points, given that they won on two of the three rinks.

Torrential rain at Broadstone didn't make bowling any easier for some of the ladies, so four points was a reasonable result.

The men's A team were unlucky to miss out on one rink by a single shot, whilst the B team continue to struggle, despite John Belger's rink handing out a hiding to their opposition from Wellworthy.

There were numerous friendlies this week, including the annual fixture against Winchester which always ends with a meal.

Winchester were a few short to make up the six rinks, so Lyme duly obliged in making up the numbers.

The club finals weekend is now less than two weeks away and the Competitions Secretary has asked that all cups be returned to the club. He has also asked that if anyone who is not involved in any final would be prepared to mark, would they please let him know.
