Last week saw yet another dismal showing from the championship side, writes Paul Moffitt.

They suffered an 8-2 loss away at Poole Park where only the rink of Steve Chant was able to secure any points.

There was better news, though, for Lyme Two, as they had a fine 10-0 win against Dorchester A, but the ladies only managed four points against Bridport despite winning on two rinks.

Chris Barber’s rink, often the most successful this season, had a nightmare afternoon, going down 7-38!

Lyme played host to six rinks of men from local clubs in the annual Silver Jubilee Cup competition.

At the end of the day the winners were the team from Seaton that comprised of Roger Woolland, Don Yalley, Peter Barradell and Terry Smith. The runners-up were Sidmouth and third spot went to Bridport.

Just one friendly was played last week, and that was against a Welsh touring side from Islwyn – see results below where, as promised, the results from the game against Cardiff the previous week can also be seen.
