Pride of place this week goes to the men from Lyme Two who managed a terrific 8-2 win against, arguably, the strongest team in Division One, Bridport, writes Paul Moffitt.

On the other hand, Lyme One lost all 10 points away to Wellworthy, the men here glad to be rained off at 15 ends.

The ladies only managed three points away to Bridport, Nola Stephen’s rink having a real stinker. They fared much better in the Top Club competition at Sherborne, winning by 82-71.

Only one frendly, against Honiton, this time last week’s loss to them was reversed.

On Sunday, the club held the annual Gridley Triples, which was played in very warm and humid conditions.

Sadly, only 18 members made themselves available on the day for what was a very enjoyable event.

The eventual winners were: Jasmine Bishop, Pauline Knight and Jim Moseley on plus 22, well ahead of their nearest rivals. The trophy was presented to the winners by president Pat Cole.
