The Lyme Regis ladies have kicked off their league season with an away draw against Gillingham, writes Paul Moffitt.

Unfortunately, it was Gillingham that had the two winning rinks, giving them six points to the four banked by Lyme.

The men started their leagues earlier this week with the championship side hosting Blandford, whilst the newly promoted second team are away to Greenhill.

The club have played three friendlies over the past week, but had their game against Merriott washed out on Friday.

It has been an inauspicious start by the club, who contrived to lose all three games, the one against Seaton in disastrous fashion!
