It’s been another very poor week in the leagues for Lyme Regis teams, writes Paul Moffatt.

The ladies failed to get a point against Blandford, the championship men only gained a single point against Poole Park and Lyme II men only managed two points against Bridport A.

The friendly matches saw Lyme teams fare a little better, with one win, one draw and two losses, or in the case of the game against Cranford more of a slaughter!

Commiserations, to Pam Weech, Angela Rattenbury, Chris Pomeroy and Alex Darvill who were narrowly beaten by Bridport in the quarter-finals of the county ladies fours competition.
