Points for the Lyme ladies only

bowlsBy Paul Moffatt

ONLY the Lyme Regis Bowling Club’s ladies managed any points in the league’s last week, salvaging two points against Bridport at home.

Both the mens’ teams were savaged by an ever-increasing threat from Greenhill, who are now weighed down with quality bowlers.

In the friendlies it was no better with resounding losses against Axminster and a day tour from Boscombe Cliff.

On Sunday the club held their Pelman Cup competition, a singles knock-out game with three woods. The finalists were father and son Steve and Paul Pomeroy who had beaten Barry Driscoll and Diana Courtenay Smith in the semi-finals. Steve managed to get his nose in front 15-13 with one end to go but, Paul managed a two-count to force an extra end. Paul put all three woods very close to the jack to which Steve had no reply. So, Paul’s name goes on the trophy for another year.
