We’ve had better results from the leagues this week, despite the ladies’ game being called off because of rain, writes Paul Moffitt.

Lyme Men had an impressive win against Wellworthy A with a shot difference of 51 after 18 ends, at which point the opposition threw in the towel!

Lyme A had an encouraging win against Bridport A getting eight points of the 10 available. Lyme B had less good fortune at Sherborne where they only secured three points.

A much better showing by the club on the friendly front, winning four out of five!

Saturday saw the club hosting a round of the John’s Trophy between Dorset and Somerset BA. Dorset were outplayed by a young and experienced Somerset side but, it is good to have matches of this calibre being played at Lyme Regis.
