Lyme Regis Bowls Club: This has been another mixed week of fortunes for the league sides. Lyme Men managed six points at home to Branksome, thanks to a magnificent effort by Mike Preston's rink.

Both the A and B teams went down by the maximum, falling to Melcombe Regis and Bridport A respectively.

On a more positive note, the Ladies took all 10 points against Swanage at home.

The weather continues to wreak havoc with the domestic scene with last Wednesday being a complete washout. The competition secretary, Bill Burton, has extended the deadline for this round of matches by one week in order that games that have had to be cancelled, because of the weather, can be re-scheduled.

Lyme Men were also casualties in the semi-final of the County Cup. They were outplayed both at home and at Wimborne, with only George Stockley's rink managing an honourable draw.
