The Lyme Regis ladies’ have managed to save their place in Division One of the Dorset League, not by their own endeavours going down 10-0 away to Dorchester but, Poole Park very kindly managed only six of the possible eight points which would have seen them stay up and Lyme relegated, writes Paul Moffitt.

The men wait to see if their future lies in the championship league, rightfully they would be relegated, but last minute adjustments to the league structure may come to their aid. We wait to see!

Of the three friendlies played only the ladies managed to win against a strong touring side from Norfolk.

Congratulations to Lesley Broom who has won the Coburn Trophy for the second time, a competition open to all officers of Clubs within Dorset.
