Lyme Regis ladies beaten by Bridport in Top Club meeting
PUBLISHED: 10:41 19 June 2014
The Lyme Regis ladies' had a rest from league duty this week in order to play a Top Club match against neighbours Bridport, writes Paul Moffitt.
Unfortunately Lyme weren’t quite strong enough, on the day, to overcome what is a very strong Bridport squad.
The men fared better in their Top Club tussle against the fancied Greenhill team and managed to come away the victors by three disciplines to two.
The men were not so fortunate in their championship game against Dorchester when they only managed to salvage a single point. Fortunes will have to improve if they are not to find themselves relegated again this season.
The men’s second string had a good result against Dorchester A this week, being somewhat unfortunate not to win the game outright having won by two rinks to one.
Another shaky week for the friendlies, with only two successes in four. It’s a tough time for captain Philip Stephens trying to fulfil these friendly games as so many members are heavily involved in County and National competitions.
