In the leagues the ladies achieved a 6-4 win away at Broadstone Wessex and the following day chalked up a stunning win in the June Culpin game against the same opponents, writes Paul Moffitt,

The men in the championship division again came up short again away to Poole Park. Now firmly rooted at the bottom of the table, it will take some sort of miracle to avoid relegation.

In the two friendlies, Lyme came second in both matches which were against Honiton and Ilminster.
