LYME Regis Bowls Club ladies kicked off their league season with an away draw against Gillingham.
Unfortunately, it was Gillingham that had the two winning rinks, giving them six points against Lyme’s four. The men started started their leagues today (Monday), the championship side hosting Blandford whilst the newly promoted 2nd team were away to Greenhill.
The club have played three friendlies this past week but had their game against Merriott was washed out on Friday.
It has been an inauspicious start by the club who contrived to lose all three games, the one against Seaton in disastrous fashion.
