Seaton win Perham Trophy
The ladies’ and gent’s B teams have been the pick of the bunch with eight points apiece this week at Lyme Regis GC, writes Paul Moffitt.
What should have been a bit of a banker for the Championship side against lowly Wimborne proved to be anything but. The visitors notched up six points against Lyme's four, the match being won by a mere two shots.
The A team struggled again, when up against Dorchester A at home, securing just two points.
On the friendly front, it was win, win, win for Lyme. Comfortable wins against Somerton & Queen Camel were followed by a Lyme rink winning the annual 'Frank Stone Trophy. Opposing teams came from Bridport, Budleigh, Crewkerne, Honiton, Axminster and Sidmouth.
