Lyme Regis quartet Paul Pomeroy, Paul Moffitt, Peter Eagles and John Eaton have been crowned the champions of the Dorset 4 competition after victory at Dorchester last Sunday.

This is a first win of the prestigious trophy for Lyme since 1953.

All four Lyme bowlers were in good form from the start and quickly put their opponents, Wimborne, under pressure.

At 26-4 in favour of Lyme after just 16 ends Wimborne shook hands, not wishing to endure any further punishment!

In the leagues the men had a good win away to Wellworthy, but the ladies failed again against Dorchester, a team where they have had good success in the past.

There were five friendlies this week with Lyme managing three wins, one loss and one draw.

The club entertained Winchester on Sunday, one of the highlights of the bowling calendar. The game was followed by a barbeque which was cooked by club members on what was a beautiful summer’s afternoon.

Results:

West Dorset Men Div 1: Lyme 8, Wellworthy A 2

Dorset Ladies Div 1: Lyme 50, Dorchester 55. J Parsons, S Cox, L Broom, N Stephens 20-17; H Dowling, M Bartlett, A Allman, C Barber 17-20; J Moffitt, S Rowe, M Gillett, K Clissold 13-18.
