Both Lyme Two men and the ladies got whitewashed in their latest respective league fixtures, writes Paul Moffitt.

Bridport did a demolition job on the men in their final game of the season, whilst the ladies were rolled over away to Westmoors.

However, there was good news for the men in the championship league when they, playing their final league game of the season, got a most unexpected 8-2 win against Greenhill, who are currently the league leaders.

With 16 points from their last two games, the championship men will retain their place in the top tier for next year, something that looked unlikely just two weeks ago! There was just the one friendly played last week and it saw Lyme reverse the defeat they suffered when they played at Chardstock earlier in the season.

On Sunday, 30 club members competed for the Pelman Cup. The game is a three-wood open singles knockout with all members playing to their handicap.
