The weather was the main winner this week with several games having to be cancelled or postponed, writes Paul Moffitt.

The championship men managed two points away to top of the league Greenhill whilst Lyme Two contrived to get eight points from two draws and a win against Dorchester B.

The ladies had a free week as they were due to play Ferndown who pulled out of the league earlier in the season.

It looks as if Lyme will have two Percy Baker teams taking part in the play-offs as, Lyme topped both W2 and W3 of the league.

The friendly against Sherborne was a casualty of the weather, but Lady Captain’s Day managed to avoid the showers.

Teams from Ottery St Mary, Seaton, Bridport, Axminster and Dorchester played against five teams from Lyme, with the eventual winners being Bridport.

All monies raised on the day went to lady captain Angela Rattenbury’s cancer charity.
