The Lyme Regis ladies are the only ones still involved in league action and managed a fine 8-2 win away to Ferndown, writes Paul Moffitt.

In the friendlies, now reducing in number as the end of the season looms, Lyme managed to win both, the one against tourists from Sunningdale in convincing style.

Last Saturday was the chance for those players who have not won an individual singles competition, the chance to compete in the ‘Henry Broome Rose Bowl’ event, open to both men and ladies who compete on equal terms.

This year’s winner, played in spectacular September sunshine, was Alan Weech who, managed to out-bowl his opponent Trevor Allman in a superb final.

This coming week-end sees the Club running the annual Club Finals. Charlie Barber has asked me to remind all of you who have trophies from last year, to kindly return them to him as soon as possible.
