In terms of Lyme Regis league teams, it is the men’s first team who continue to struggle for points, writes Paul Moffitt.
Their latest outing saws them suffer another whitewash defeat, this time at the hands of visiting Poole Park.
However, the second team did well to get six points away to Portland Victoria despite losing on two rinks.
Top billing this week applies to the ladies as they banked a fine eight points when they entertained West Moors.
Of the three friendlies played, the only win for the club was against a touring side from Bicester.
