With Lyme One and Two not having action in the past week it was down to the ladies to provide the league action, writes Paul Moffitt.

Playing host to table-topping Blandford, Lyme managed to bank just two points.

Nola Stephen’s rink were successful in overcoming Jenny Andrews rink for the second time this season whilst Pam Weech’s rink came back from the dead to lose by a single shot. Chris Barber’s rink were closing the gap towards the end, but dropped a few shots at a vital point.

The club played host to the Lyme councillors and staff on Friday, with a fish and chip supper laid on by the mayor, Cllr. Owen Lovell, after some entertaining action on the green.

The club travelled to Cardiff on Sunday to take part in the annual fixture, with a full coach of playing and non-playing members and the full results will be in next week’s column.
