Only the Lyme Regis ladies had a satisfactory result last week, in terms of league matches, recording a fine 8-2 win away to Dorchester, writes Paul Moffitt.

The championship side continue to struggle, this time against Shaftesbury at home. Only Steve Chant's rink managed a win against newly promoted Shaftesbury, a game where we might have expected to do better.

Lyme Two's men came unstuck against a very strong Greenhill A side, a team that has been greatly strengthened this year with a big influx of influential players.

On the friendly side, it's been a very good week for the club with big wins against both Ottery St Mary and Chardstock.

With the county and national competitions in full swing, there have been a few successes.

Barry Driscoll, Alan Nabarro and Paul Moffitt progressing to the quarter-finals of the County Triples after a very good win away at Greenhill in the third round.

With a very good influx of new players to the club, Wednesday evenings are proving popular for coaching sessions with Paul Edmonds.

Anyone else who 'fancies having a go' at bowls is very welcome to come down on a Wednesday evening and join in.

All equipment will be provided, just wear flat shoes, and the opportunity to join with a 50 per cent reduction in fees still applies for 2019 season.
