Lyme Regis ladies made history when they won the Dorset Interclub Trophy for the first time, writes Matt Searle.

The trophy was founded in 1928 and the Lyme ladies showed true grit and determination to come out on top against a strong Parkstone side resulting in a convincing win by five matches to two.

The Lyme team comprised of Melissa McMahon, Jane Southcombe, Jane Dixon Jenny Scott, Caroline Baker, Cyndy Mudford and Sue Fossett.

The Lyme Regis senior section had a particularly good week playing two friendly matches.

First up they recorded an excellent four games to two success over Dorset Golf and Country Club.

That was followed by a much closer affair in the meeting with Exeter Golf Club, one they were victorious in to the tune of a four-and-a-half to three-and-a-half score line.

The past week also saw the inaugural competition in memory of the late Max Thorner.

The roll up that he ran invited guests to play alongside them in a shot-gun start. Over eighty golfers took part. Post event everyone sat down to a meal together where the winning pair of Alan Woodbridge and Neil Thomas were presented with the trophy.

The Lyme Regis juniors played in the Presidents Prizes event, hosted by John Owen. The gross prize was won by Dave Lyon with an excellent three under par gross score of 68. The net prize won by George Seed with a nett 70 after beating Stu Wight and Matt Watson on countback.
